What is a Great Marriage?

What is a Great Marriage?

Jul 18

I have a good marriage. No disclaimers. No excuses. No “buts.” I love my husband and he loves me, and our marriage is that good. So good, in fact, that I have begun to wonder: If this is a good marriage, what would it be like to have a great marriage? Who do I know that can say, “We have a GREAT marriage?” that would be willing to share the goods on just how their good...

Whew. Mixed emotions going on in me for sure now that we are 72 hours to “showtime”. I want to hibernate between now and then and yet, there are a few final details to tend to and… oh yeah… I still have two other kids who need their Mommy to read to them and make their after-school popcorn.

The fact that I have visited two of my favorite cities in the last 3 months (NYC and London) has me pinching myself! In recent years, my daily activities have existed within a 4-mile radius so flying to England might as well be a mission to the moon. I recently picked up a book...

We don’t always get to choose our soil. This is especially true when we are children. And while we may grow into adulthood having spent more consecutive years in places far from our home or origin, isn’t it true that our initial soil somehow remains in us, part of us, supplying ground to all of life’s experiences?

  After nearly a year of silence, I thought this was the perfect time to announce not only are we expecting our third baby this Fall (a BOY!!!!), but after 4 years at Lady Lullabuy,  I have finally moved! Welcome to the new site (a BIG thanks to my designer, Ted Slater whom I drove half insane over fonts and color schemes for nearly 9 months!!) Take a look around and make yourself at home....

For the past three years, I have relayed the topsy-turvy narrative of home, family, and other inspired thoughts here at Lady Lullabuy. I love my little corner of blogging-realestate, and yet lately, I have been feeling the need to renovate the space– new look and feel, streamlined content, user-friendly features… the works. {You know how I love a good Before & After.} With that...
