Workin’ It Wednesday!

Happy Hump day!  I’m linking up with Erika and Shay for their new series “Workin’ It Wednesdays” and today we’re sharing how we keep our marriages strong!

I am clearly no expert on marriage – I mean, we’ve only been married for a little over a year (we’ve been together for over 7!) but I do know what works for us and that’s all that counts 🙂

Logan started classes again last year and that makes for a busy schedule for him (full time work and full time night classes)!  I can’t say that I love how late his classes are (or how often!) but I am so excited for him and know that in the long run, this will be amazing for our future!

I try to do little things for him throughout the week (since I know it’s stressful) so he knows how much I do appreciate him and our marriage – it can be simple gestures like making his Overnight Oats every night (or when I remember, ugh I’m terrible! ha!) or making dinner more often so that he can have left overs when he goes straight to school after work.

We like to use the time we get together to do some fun things too – nothing crazy, simple things like happy hour drinks or a fun Bingo Saturday!

Oh yeah, and that whole golfing thing 😉

We’re open with each other about everything and we’re both supportive of each other in everything we do!  Even though he totally thinks I’m crazy for this whole blog thing… he’s still supportive and takes my OOTD pictures for Instagram!

We’re on the same page with reality which helps our marriage remain realistic and not in La La Land!

We both value the same things as well and know what’s important in our lives.

Our marriage and life isn’t perfect by any means, but it’s perfect for us 🙂

What tips do you have on how to keep your marriage strong?

    adorable pics and love that you try to do little things for him each day. i think that’s what makes it nice when you’re always thinking of the other person as well and what makes them happy 🙂 Really enjoyed your post! I hope you can check my post out as well!

    That’s great that Logan is working on his classes now instead of when/if you have kids in the future. I definitely support my hubby on his higher education goals, but some days it is hard when you have to solo-parent while the other is studying. Totally unrelated, but your coral dress is SO cute!

    First time popping over to your site. yay! First of all, totally unrelated, but I love your style! I am dying over all of your beautiful dresses! I cracked up at several of the things you said in this post, especially about how he doesn’t get the whole blog thing. So funny. You guys are a cute couple! Happy to have found your site. 🙂
