Quality time is one of my love languages. So naturally, celebrating family is one of my my favorite things to do. Saturday we celebrated Shawn and his upcoming wedding! Dinner + painting + laughter = a wonderful night!
I want it all. The pointless bickering, the long walks, the jokes that only we can understand, the arguments over our parenting style, the friendship, the love, and the fights
Sometimes you miss those free-form days. So this Saturday we decided to do it all - lunch, massage followed by a movie night. At first, it was weird not having Aira with us but we spent so much quality time and seriously caught up... .Getting couple time builds intimacy, opens communication and strengthens your bond not only as a couple but as a family!! So speak up when you need a break, and plan to spend some ’WE’ time 💑❤️ .
To say I have a huge family would be an understatement. QT with my parents are treasured. Relationships w siblings are tricky. You have many ups and downs but as you grow older, those petty fights get easier to forget when we get together. I am beyond blessed having the best cousins from both my mom and dad's side. From hilarious group chats or one on one's, hangouts in the Summer, especially the baseball runs (gotta get the beach volleyball going again this yr guys) and our annual holiday get togethers, it's always always good times!

If you find yourself in a long distance relationship (LDR) don't get nervous! It's possible to have a healthy and trusting relationship from a distance (until you are able to come together). People find themselves in LDR's for a variety of reasons: school, work, met via online dating and live in different cities, etc. The reality is that LDR's require a bit more work and intention. Although, I will suggest tips for people in long-distance relationships, the tips I will offer can apply to ALL relationships.
1. Communicate every day! You can text, skype, video call, old school phone call, email. The options are vast. Use them to your advantage!
2. Invite each other into your respective worlds via picture and video. Give each other a tour of your living arrangements, your city, etc. Make each other present where you are.
3. Do things together, like watch a movie, or have a virtual date .
4. People in LDR's stay away from conflict often avoiding certain topics because they are not close. This is not healthy for you and can lead to the demise of . Commitment to resolving differences quickly and "in person" (this is where video calls can be great because you can see one another).
5. Commit to being patience and behave/carry yourself like you are in a relationship. Respect one another and what you have decided to commit to. If you not longer can do so, don't sneak around and instead be up front and communicative with your partner.
6. Make a plan and commitment to see each other regularly (and unless if there is an emergency stick to your plans). This shows priority and commitment to one another.
The key word used: Commit and make the choice to connect with your partner despite the distance.
What a fun day!
Lunch at Joe’s Deli with Holly & Mia. 😋🥰 Explored the Rainforest with Ellie. They had a Fairytales & Frogs event going on. So many kids in adorable costumes. Jake was a little exhausted from working today. And saw my girl, Christine😘. Savoring every moment we spend together. These years are flying by!

Had an amazing weekend with my love and some friends skiing in Maine! I love activities that get me outside during the gloomy winter months #active#wintersports#qualitytime
Traffic Jam (Rush Hour). 19 Februari 2019
Game ini saya rekomendasikan untuk keluarga. Kenapa begitu? ya karena ini bisa mengisi waktu berjarga bersama sluruh kluarga.
Ayah ibu.. anak.. kakek nenek bahkan bs ikut main loh.
Nah.. saya beli mainan ini waktu Kinan usia kurang dr 4 tahun. Waktu itu dia masih suka menata aja mobil2nya dan merapikan kartu2nya.
Nah sata dia usia 5 tahun dia mulai mau main pake kartunya.. ikut aturan mainnya.Jadi di game ini terdiri dari 35 game cards dari level beginner sampai expert sebagai petunjuk bentuk puzzle, 1 petunjuk jalan, 4 truk penghalang, 11 mobil mini penghalang, & 1 mobil inti pemain.
Nah saat ini Kinan masih di level 11. Dan itu bisa diulang2 terus sampai dia berhasil.
dan ayah ibu pun bisa ikut main.
Nah Abim memainkan mobil2 ini dengan gayanya sendiri. hihi.
Bukan jualam ya.. hanya rekomendasi. Beli dimana? di market place banyaaak.. ada yg orinya sih.. tapi ini Kw nya.. tapi bener2 nggak ngurangi manfaatnya kok. hehehehe.
Yuk siapa mau coba main??
Nobody warned me in high school that adulthood meant chores, a lot of never ending chores! That info would have been a lot more helpful than learning Geometry or Advanced Algebra.. 🤣
I spent my day off deep cleaning the house because it was definitely overdue. Laundry, grocery shopping, dishes, hand washing floors and counters, vacuuming.. you name it.
Laundry has ALWAYS been a struggle. I have every intention of washing, drying, and then putting it all away right away. That usually lasts for a load or two and then I start putting clean clothes in laundry baskets. Sometimes I bring the baskets upstairs and sometimes they are lined up in the hallway outside the laundry room 😬.
Eventually I end up with a GIANT pile of clean clothes like this. I dump all of the baskets out on our bed and then sort it. Once it’s all sorted, I put shirts and pants on hangers before finally putting them in the closet. For my workout clothes, I do a pair of pants, shirt, and a sports bra so it’s easy to grab n go.. no stalling by trying to put an “outfit” together.
Lately, I’ve grown to “enjoy” this giant pile of clean clothes because Tony and I usually tackle putting it all away together. It’s 20 minutes of sorting and talking without any interruptions. To most this looks like a giant pile of clean laundry, to me it’s a little project/quality time with the hubs. Welcome to adulthood, folks!
Do you have any laundry tips that you’ve learned over the years? ⤵️

Wie ging es so schnell?
Die Klarheit kommt durch, im Wirrwar, über dich, denn du bist-
Wir sind ein.
