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. Among other things, we spent 30 days hiking and camping along Turkey’s famed Lycian Way, eating a healthy Mediterranean diet, drinking only occasionally, and completely disconnecting from the world to commune with nature […]

You would expect the people who have a one-year marriage contract would have an equally nerdy plan to keep the daily romance in a relationship. And you would be right! 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.

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 […]

Popup_MWL_Final

Can you smell the love in the air? For some people, the scent of romance might be warm cookies or roses or the salty air of the beach. But for us, love and romance smells like a train station! (Well, at least the parts that don’t smell like urine.) The coffee stands on the platform tempting […]

Conscious Coupling

Unconsciously uncoupling
