I hope you are having a great July!

The weather out here has finally turned the corner and I remember why I love the Pacific Northwest. Mountains, water, and clear blue skies!

My husband’s family just left, and we had a great time showing them around Seattle. We also visited a few places on our Northwest bucket list.

Mount Rainier, Hurricaine Ridge, Northwest Trek, kayaking in Liberty Bay, and the Point Defiance Zoo were all so fun and beautiful!

Today my husband and I are heading out to northern Idaho to visit family and do some backpacking. I will fill you in when we get back. Below is a picture of me on with Mt. Rainier in the background, and Narada Falls on Mt. Rainier. Get out there and have some fun this summer!




Music in Portland

Hey everyone!

I hope your marriage and week are going well!

Sorry for my absence the past few days.

I am currently in Portland playing some gigs with the Navy Band Northwest for Portland’s Rose Festival!

I will be back online later this week.  Till then…

If you want to check out what I do with the Navy you can “Like” Navy Band Northwest’s Facebook page here.

Why Fitness Is Good For Marriage

24 Oct

My husband and I really enjoy working out together.

We like lifting heavy weights, metabolic conditioning, and being exhausted after just killing a workout together.

Maybe you aren’t as into working out as we are, but exercising with your spouse can improve any relationship.

Whether it is walking together, swimming, running, biking, going to the gym or hiking, exercising with your spouse makes you feel good. 

Why do it?

When we get beyond the mundane tasks of life, and break up the monotony with something different like exercise, it adds interest and fun to our lives (who knows, maybe some sexual interest as well).

Exercising together makes you feel like you are on a team with common goals.

Not only that, but exercise improves our moods from the endorphins that are released.  Yay for feeling good!

What next?

If you have decided that adding some fitness to your relationship could be a good thing, then sit down and write out some goals with your spouse.

Talk about what interests you and some things you could do together. Maybe join a gym, or plan some hikes.

Have fun with it and support each other in your goals.

Note: when setting your goals ensure they are S.M.A.R.T. and realistic to your lifestyle.

Are you feeling like your marriage could use a pick me up?

Take a walk with your spouse today, or make plans to start a new exercise regimen together.

Meatloaf and What it Taught Me

So I could try to make this video relate to something in marriage, but it doesn’t.

Guy on A Buffalo

I got this Video from Jon Acuff’s blog a few days ago. My husband and I thought it was hysterical and have been sharing it with friends ever since. I hope you and your spouse get a good laugh together!
