I had planned to share more this week, and hopefully I’ll get a post up tomorrow, but then life happened. And by life I mean “road trip recovery,” which always takes longer than I expect, and “ant invasions,” which started the day we got back home and haven’t stopped yet.
Let me just say, it is rather difficult to see, let alone battle, an army of ants that are marching through blue shag carpet. I knew we should’ve redone the flooring in the girls’ room sooner. Alas.
I’ve shared a few of these articles and blog posts and essays on my Facebook page, but not all. They’ve been fun to collect over the last couple weeks; I hope you enjoy them!
“Love languages” have become part of the vernacular. This helps explain why we’re all a little obsessed.
My friend Lydia recently created a “Love Project” and the first interview and images she shared are so good. (She actually took my photo a while ago for this; I should probably send her some text to go with it!)
Not all of these are true for every marriage, but goodness, they’re funny! #24 and #26, anyone? (My love language is totally food.)
More funnies, because a sense of humor is EVERYTHING.

Confession: I get a little ragey when people insist that your kids should be your #1 priority. I’m firmly in the “put your relationship with your spouse first” camp, and this is why.
An honest look at navigating a transcultural marriage…which is remarkably similar to navigating any marriage. Except for the bit about eating octopus, of course. That’s probably less universal.
Have you seen any interesting things about marriage online lately? Leave me some links; I’d love to check them out!
