A Night of Fear and Acceptance in Spain

SP2_6523

We sat in the bar with less than an hour to go before the presentation started and we were terrified. We looked at each other and wondered how in the world we had gotten ourselves into this. In just a few minutes we were expected to step onto stage and share our story, in front of […]

We’re breaking up with people. It’s not them, it’s us (OK, sometimes it’s them).

How We Plan a New Year for Married with Luggage

Warren & Betsy's 2014

Today we are sitting down to conduct our annual review process. This formal process each year allows us to sit down for a few hours and review the year that was and plan for the year to come. Each year we leave the conversation filled with excitement, and I expect this year’s discussion to be the best yet. […]

Why We Let Ourselves Go (and How We’re Getting Our Groove Back)

Getting our groove back

There’s no other way to say it: We let ourselves go. Last year we were in the best shape of our lives.

Earlier this year we navigated the purchase of a new home in a foreign country, published a book, renovated the new home, planned a 10-city […]

Married with Baggage (or, When We Forget the Rules of Fight Club)

Find-time-to-talk-to-your-partner-200x133

Married with Luggage is sometimes Married with Baggage as we bring the weight from our past into the arguments of the present. Even the positive stress of frequent travel and change for this International Love Affair book tour brings out some of our worst tendencies, and if we don’t keep them in check and follow […]

How We Recenter Our Relationship When Things Get Out of Whack

Every relationship gets sidetracked by the busy-ness of life, ours included. And in those times when we’re feeling a little disconnected from each other… slightly run down by the pace… pulled in too many different directions… we know how to quickly recenter. We’re almost a month into the International Love Affair tour for our book, […]

What We Learned About Love in Florence, Italy

Florence lay before us in a palette of terra cotta and green. From the hills of Fiesole, we picked out the landmarks below: the Duomo, the Uffizi Museum, the Arno river. Birds sang, the sun was warm on our faces, and we were standing in the garden of a 600-year-old villa. The wisteria clinging to […]
