Crated With Love & WeCraft Subscription Box Staycation Date Night & Kids Box

This month though – I had a surprise for them. Not only did I get a date night box for their dad and I to do, but I also got a box for the KIDS and I to do together! 

Crated With Love (one of my most favorite date night subscription box options) recently teamed up with a company called WeCraft to offer what they’re calling their “Staycation” package. For $50 you get BOTH subscription boxes – a Subscription Box Staycation ….aaand….wait for it…you ALSO get $20 in gift vouchers toward the two companies to use for future boxes! I do a cost breakdown at the bottom of this post so you can see how awesome of a deal this is. In the meantime, check out all the fun we had on our ‘subscription box staycation’: Read more…

Love Is More Than Love. 6 Different Kinds of Love & How They Affect Marriage

It’s a shame that we lump all the different kinds of love into the same word, obfuscating the differences between, and the beauties of, each kind of love that one is likely to feel in their lifetimes. 

It’s also a shame that when most people think of “love” in the context of modern-day marriage, they assume that the love they have for each other will always be the same love. Almost everyone who enters into marriage does so under the guise of “being in love”, but I have a shocker for you:

I Asked 32 Bloggers: “Why Get Married? Why STAY Married?” – Here’s What They Said

This has been one of the coolest little projects I’ve ever taken on. For awhile now, I’d considered writing a blog post about Why Get Married? Why Stay Married? (if you don’t understand why these questions are different – you’re probably either not married, or haven’t been for long.) similar in vein to my Why Have Kids? post. But knowing that I have the propensity to dive into topics a bit too deeply than most people care about, lol, I had another idea: What if I compiled a list of why other couples chose to get married and why they continue to stay married?

And that’s what I did! 

I first reached out to some of the marriage bloggers I knew and liked. Surprisingly, several of them responded. So I started reaching out farther to more bloggers in different niches. I asked around in some of my blogging facebook groups – would anyone like to contribute? Bloggers I followed on Instagram but had never spoken to – I left them a message on their website.  Read more…
