Marriage Monday: Why Compliments are the Key to Happiness

Compliments

Marriage Monday has not been forgotten. I know it’s been awhile since I did one of these posts but I swear I’m trying to do more of them for you guys.

For this Marriage Monday, I wanted to talk about why compliments are key to a happy healthy marriage.

I, of course, am only talking from my own experience so I’m not stating any of this as a fact. These are just things I’ve noticed that help bring me and my husband together.

So I know we hear compliments everyday, but there is something special about hearing it from your spouse. A simple “you look beautiful/handsome”, really goes a long way.

I think the reason compliments are so important is that it’s a way of showing gratitude for the other person. By saying a simple compliment here and there, you are letting your spouse know that you are grateful for them and that you are recognizing them.

Compliments are huge for staying connected with your spouse.

Nobody likes to feel ignored or unappreciated. So make sure you shower your spouse in some compliments today!

Here are a couple of my favorite compliments that always bring a smile to my face and make me feel special:

“you look incredible”

“I’m so lucky to be with you”

“I can’t wait to show you off”

“You make me so happy”

“I love being with you”

“I love everything about you”

These are just some examples of simple compliments that can speak volumes and really brighten your spouses day when they hear it.

I love when my husband surprises me with a little compliment like this here and there. It really helps me to know that he is grateful for me and that he is taking the time to notice me.

So next time you are at a loss for words or just sitting around, try saying one of these simple compliments to your spouse and see their face light up with a smile!

Till next time!

Marriage Monday: Why Dating your Spouse is Important

As I’m sure many people already know marriage is something you have to be willing to constantly work at. Marriage is more than just throwing a wedding and starting a family, it’s about choosing one person who you want to grow with and cherish for the rest of your life. And just like anything else, you can’t expect to never work at it, and everything to be perfect. Now, I’m not saying marriage is all work and no fun. Quite the opposite actually. I think half the fun of marriage is finding ways you can improve your relationship and make it even better than the day before, cause in the end it’s your spouse and you. Kids, pets, friends, they will all come and go but your spouse is that one person who will always be there with you, so it’s important to show your marriage the attention and love it deserves.

That being said, today’s marriage post is all about why dating your husband/spouse is a great way to grow your marriage. Now I just want to say, I am no marriage expert nor am I trying to be one. I just want to share with all of you the things that have worked for my marriage, and who knows maybe it’ll work for you too!

All about us: Marriage Q&A

Hey everyone! So I’m super excited for this post because this is something I have been wanting to dive into and talk about since the beginning.

The reason I decided I wanted to start a blog was because one day my husband and I were sitting on the couch after we had just gotten back from a vacation and I said “let’s see all the pictures we took”. We pulled out our phones and combined between the 2 of us we had only taken 10 pictures! 10!? A whole vacation and we only took 10 pictures!? I could have sworn in my head we took more but there was the proof right in front of us. I was so bummed because we did so many great activities and I planned out all my outfits, and what did I have to look back and remember it by? Nada. I decided right then I wanted to create something that can be like a memory bank for us. For all our travels, our amazing moments in life that I want to cherish, and just fun silly everyday stuff. I wanted to make myself accountable for documenting our memories so that we had something to look back on later in life and reminisce. THAT’s why I started this blog, that and because I’ve always loved writing and find it to be such a great creative release.
