Turn Your Husband’s Bad Day Into a Great Day II

6 Dec , 2013  

turn your husband's bad day into a great day

When you get married, especially as early as I have, it is quite normal to have certain expectations of what marriage will be like – blue skies and heart-shaped everything everywhere. Yes, well, it turned out life is a bit more complicated than that. There are times when you have a bad day for no apparent reason. Or at least you don’t always know what you are going through. In any case, everyone has these moments and it is our duty as wives to attend to our husbands when they are going through the same.

Turn Your Husband’s Bad Day Into a Great Day

turn your husband's bad day into a great day

Even though marrying Stephen was the best thing that ever happened to me, sometimes I just have a bad day and I have to admit a defeat. In days like this when Stephen comes back from work tired and stressed out, I just wish I knew how to make it all disappear. What is worse, before I got married, I thought that would be much easier and I had some false expectations that everything that is bad will go away as easily as if I had a magic wand.

Getting Married Young in a Culture That Says: “No Way in Hell!” II

2 Jul , 2013  

Getting married young

Getting married young nowadays seems like a crazy thing to do, keeping in mind the options we have. However, sometimes, I believe, this great variety of so called “options”, limits us.  Relationships comes and go, intimate partners change, but we remain the same and expect different results from every new relationship that comes along. In addition, being alone doesn’t mean that you are free! That being said, I believe marriage provides us a larger platform for positive change and a stable foundation to grow!  More…

What to Do With Your Wedding Dress After the Big Day is Over

30 Jun , 2013  

Beautiful Lace Bridal Gown

If you think you’d be done with your wedding after you eat from the cake and throw the bouquet, you are quite wrong. I should know! It has been almost an year now since Stephen and I got married and I am still hesitating about my wedding dress and what to do with it. In other words,  wedding-related decisions will still keep coming after the big day is over. You will have to send “Thank you!” notes  to your guests, find a place for all the presents, flowers, and determine what to do with your wedding gown. Your wedding is simply not done with you yet!

2 Apr , 2013  

benefits of having a dog

A few days ago I shared my story with the jack Russell Joe and the cat Alice. Stephen and I had to take care of them, while their two owners were away on a trip. I got myself thinking, why would people pay for a pet, clean a mess they haven’t made, pay for food and put in so much effort into taking care of it? Then all the psychological benefits of owning a fluffy friend started flooding my mind. And they are many! I will briefly discuss a few.

hate cleaning, but love romantic gift

In the first part of this article, I shared with you some of my ideas and experience when it comes to romantic gifts and surprises for men. Unlike women, men are significantly easier to satisfy when it comes to gifts, as they don’t really expect extravagant things, girls on the other hand, require a bit more effort, but let’s be honest – they deserve it!
