New RelevantMagizine.com Feature & Sleep Stories

We have a new feature up on relevantmagazine.com check it out:


Hey everyone! We just got back from a week in Ocean City, MD. Great fun and relaxation. Nothing super insightful about marriage was learned on this vacation, which was kinda nice because insightful learning can be tiring!

We did have one funny night at 2:30am where I woke up to a loud (very loud) banshee type yell and when I turned on the light I found Jake had fallen off the side of his bed. He was peaking up at me from the floor with these shifty eyes. I sighed and asked him what happened to which I got incoherent replies. So I told him to get up and go back to sleep. The next morning we found out that he was having a dream that flying swordfish were going to impale him.

I never expected to have to sleep in two twin beds when I got married. We push them next to each other so it's mostly like a King. It's not the end of the world, but it does kinda stink at times. However, it's nights like swordfish night that remind me all the reasons we need to do the twin bed thing!! I love Jake...but he's crazy when he sleeps...talking, thrashing, twitching, snoring, and a weird nose/mouth popping noise. Jake loves me, but I'm a crazy light sleeper and I just can't sleep in the same bed with him. We love each other...but we love sleep too! So we make it work, and instead of flying swordfish dreams being a huge fight (like it used to be because we were both so sleep deprived), now we can laugh about it :)

Our goal of this blog is to share stories (both good and bad), thoughts and insights about our marriage and we would love for you to jump into the conversation.

The goal is to provide three things:
1) HOPE for struggling couples that they are not alone.
2) GROWTH in our marriages and our understanding of marriage.
3) ENCOURAGEMENT to keep loving your spouse unconditionally.
