Marriage Goal for September

Moving during a critical summer has really thrown off traditions for Justin and I.
That’s why I’m really excited to link up with Amberly.

There are two main goals we’d like to work on together:

1) Family Walks
When we lived in Provo, we would take an evening walk every Sunday. We loved it! We would take a new route every week, tell stories about our past, discuss our present (especially the shows we watch), and plan our future.
Now that we are settled and have a defined schedule, and a park in our backyard, we’d like to start that up again. A few weeks after we moved here, we did take a family walk and enjoyed the evening in the park. We loved it and want that to continue. And, it’ll be really exciting when Rhys gets to the age where he can crawl around in the grass!

2) Dinner at the Table
When we lived in our tiny college apartment in Provo, we didn’t really have a lot of room to sit at the table for dinner. And, Justin was busy with homework and I would be working on grading or lesson plans. We’d typically eat while working and/or watching shows on Hulu or Netflix. But, now that we actually have a table and a kitchen and Justin has an 8-5 job instead of awkward evening hours on campus, I want us to eat dinner at the table. Rhys will be taking a nap at this new dinner time and it will be before our shows come on. Also, it’ll prevent crumbs and such getting on the rug that Rhys is starting to roll over on.

Mission Statement:

Marriage & Relationship Goals are goals that we, as wives or girlfriends, can make each month to help us strive for the very best in our relationships and keep us moving toward a great future with our significant other. The link-up was put in place for women to join together to inspire and encourage each other in the goals that we set, share in our successes and uplift each other if we struggle. Each month we will summarize the successes we’ve had with our previous month’s goals and set new ones for the coming month. We would love for you to link up with us and share your posts on the first Monday of each month as we strive to be more intentional, serve our significant other and create better relationships.

  • Love your goals! Dinner at the table seems like such a simple one but it is so hard and has such a big impact!

    • And it’s definitely hard with a 2 month old!

  • We haven’t made eating at the table a priority lately, but I love it when we do! And I think your family walk tradition is a really cool one!

    • It seems like you’ve been taking a lot of walks, too, recently

      • hahaha! Yeah, ours are kind of forced upon us, though, in the car-less lifestyle. Of course they’re still pretty fun! Just sometimes air-conditioning sounds like more fun in the heat of the day. 😛
