Stole a quick getaway with this guy. Seventeen years ago today, at the age of seventeen, we became a couple. Tomorrow, I’ll officially be able to say that @robertstella and I have been together for the majority of our existence. •
We’ve been through so much together - the good, the bad, the happily ever after moments and the nightmare seasons. And through it all, we’ve grown closer, stronger, wiser and more in love.
I can’t wait to see what the next seventeen years hold. But whatever that is, there’s no one else I’d rather live it with than you. ❤️
Family training this morning.
Little man recovered with sleep and zen while his mom and I got after a quick Saturday session.
Focusing on getting healthy. Staying healthy.
The rest will follow.
You know we have soft spot for Valentine’s proposals around here, so nothing made us happier than to see @orlandobloom and @katyperry
reveal their engagement Thursday.
Feeling inspired by Katy’s ring?
So are we! How beautiful are these two options by Beverley K?
Of course, we can always custom design a happily ever after ring with you too.
Congratulations to the happy couple! 💗💗💗
Marriage is SO good...
When you make it that way!
If you are not working on your marriage, you were working on your divorce.
In the best way to work on your marriage is to work on yourself. There are simple things you can do every day to improve yourself as a person. That automatically improves your marriage.
For example, work on getting in and staying in the best shape of your life.
Cultivate your ability to effectively communicate your thoughts and feelings.
Learn to direct your thoughts and feelings.
all of these will make a huge positive difference in your relationships!
A commitment is a personal promise.
Keeping your promises to others builds trust and strong relationships.
Keeping promises to yourself builds character, esteem, and success.
If you can’t trust yourself who can trust you?
I didn't post any mushy Valentine's day post this week, but I do want to shout out this dude for being my rock.
He showers me with flowers just because its Tuesday, supports my crazy BIG dreams, and lifts me up when I get down.
So THANK YOU Jayke for being my person. Cant wait to celebrate all our accomplishments in 5 weeks when were back in the Caribbean 💕🌴 Lucky for me my company spoils its rockstars so I get to spoil him with this trip🛳
Wheres your favorite place to vacay?!?
We want what’s best for those we love, especially when we see them “fall off track” or make decisions they don’t realize the consequences. It consumes you- and before you realize it your people-pleasing fixer mentality puts more effort into saving them instead of preserving your peace. It turns into you becoming a marder for the benefit of your partner. Unfortunately that’s not love, even though you so badly want to see change, see what you believed is capable.
Something someone told me not too long ago was that people don’t come to the light through critiquing or criticism- it comes through the acts of kindness (talk about a tough pill to swallow). That may mean reestablishing boundaries. Checking our heart. Praying for them and how you can navigate through it even if it feels hopeless. Being a background worker instead of the control center. You can’t change them- But you can influence with kindness. Don’t let your gift of a big heart be replaced with a bitter one because you forgot to take care of it. #spoonforthought
