What Makes Our Marriage Work – Marriage is not a Sprint it’s a Marathon

It's Not a Sprint It's a Marathon

Life goes fast and time does fly but the same is true for what feels super significant at the moment will fade in importance as time goes by.  Why get into an argument over who made whom late to a dinner with friends you probably hardly ever see.  There is no need for insults about recording …

Phoenix Zoo

Phoenix Zoo
