The Unexpected Way That Journaling Helps My Marriage

Journaling is one of the best things that I do for my marriage. But perhaps not in the way you think.

Yes, my husband and I have a couple’s journal. We even did a podcast episode about couple’s journaling. I think a couple’s journal is a great way to set expectations and goals. You could even make a couple’s bucket list.

But to be honest, we’re not very consistent with it. That couple’s journal isn’t the secret sauce. The magic happens in the journals that are mine and mine alone.

Unlock your Age of Pleasure with journaling

The Age of Pleasure is here!

Most people know that I’m absolutely obsessed with Beyonce because I’m always talking about her out in these Internet streets. But my IRL friends know that I’m also a huge fan of Janelle Monae and that’s why I’m so excited about her new album The Age of Pleasure which was released today. And when she announced her North American tour and I saw that she was coming to Birmingham I snagged my tickets before they were even officially on sale. (Yup, I got that Fan Presale hook-up.)


21 Birthday Affirmations

Today I’m sharing some birthday affirmations because it’s my birthday!

Birthdays are a big deal because they’re like your own personal new year. It’s a great time to set goals and intentions for your next trip around the sun. But as the excitement of your birthday starts to wane, your confidence in your goals might as well. That’s why I’m a fan of birthday affirmations. They help you establish the right mindset on Day One so you can stay in the right headspace for the next 12 months.
