YOU GUYS! We are probably late to the game, but we just took our #enneagram tests at the suggestion of our dear friend, @skunkboy_ and our minds are BLOWN! • Nate’s top two were Type 3 (The Achiever) and Type 8 (The Challenger). Chris’s were Type 6 (The Loyalist) and Type 8. • We obviously know each other better than anyone else, but reading about the qualities of our top types has been so insightful for both of us, not just individually, but also as a couple! It definitely gave us each a deeper understanding how we process situations differently. • If you’re looking to understand yourself and/or your partner you should definitely take the test! If you have already taken it let us know what type you are below, and what ways it has helped you guys!
We’re celebrating Nate’s birthday today!🎈🎉This is our fifth round of birthdays together - each year I try to put my feelings into words, but I don’t do them justice. The life and family we’ve built is truly my proudest accomplishment. • You’re such a beautiful person, an incredible parent and a loving husband. I hope you feel so special and so loved today. No one deserves it more than you.❤️ • 📸: @lucaswinkelmann
During the conference last week, @oprah shared that when we communicate we want our words to be heard, be understood, and have meaning. • I exited her speech thinking of all the times Nate has said “You’re missing the point.” or asked “Did you hear me?”, and I knew right then that I had to do better. I’m not a good listener, and it’s something I’m challenging myself to change immediately. • I want Nate to know he’s heard and that what he says means something. So, here’s to many more evenings by the fire with a bottle of wine, talking with and listening to the love of my life.❤️
Daydreaming about this amazing day on our honeymoon 🥰. • We don’t have any big trips planned, but we definitely hope to get away for another vacation at some point this year! We would love to explore more unique places in the US and maybe Canada! Drop us a comment below if you have any suggestions! #tbt #thursday #throwbackthursday
Really missing my dancing partner today 😭. Chris is in Salt Lake for a few days for a work conference and I’m holding down the fort here at home. • We aren’t one of those couples who enjoy “alone time” at all. Given the choice we would probably spend 24 hours a day together. My whole routine is thrown off and I don’t sleep at all when he’s not home 😭😭 so I need Friday to get here asap so we can crank some @adele and have a kitchen dance sesh. 🥰 • Anyone else feel like they’re wandering aimlessly when their partner is gone?!
Excited to see @thelionking musical tonight with @bcwormz!
We’ve grown to appreciate the weekends as more than just a couple of days off work - it’s also quality time with the people you love. We see each other everyday, but nothing beats waking up without an alarm and enjoying our coffee without rushing around. Whatever you’re up to this weekend, we hope it’s spent with your people. ❤️
You deserve to be happy. You deserve to live a life you’re excited about. Don’t let others try to make you forget that. ❤️
We’re still gushing about our honeymoon cruise on board the @celebrityedge! The ship is so incredible! The food is fantastic (the cookie at Rooftop Garden Grill is what dreams are made of), the crew is so friendly - we could honesty go on and on. We felt so welcomed and celebrated, and the inclusivity of @celebritycruises was unparalleled. So grateful to have experienced this with my sweetheart! ❤️ #sweetheartsatsea #ad
Sunday plans. ❤️
Reflecting on our dream honeymoon today. We couldn’t have asked for a better way to start our life together as husbands. We will be dreaming of crashing waves, beaches, and sunshine today. New post is up on the blog about our trip! • We cannot thank @celebritycruises enough for being such gracious hosts. We laughed, ate, drank, danced, and made some great friends along the way! (@pjandthomas your dance skills are LEGENDARY 🕺🏼🕺🏼😅) #ad #sweetheartsatsea
Still smiling because we’re so glad to be home. 🏡❤️ Happy Tuesday!
This beautiful, intelligent young lady turns eight today! We’re sad our vacation is over, but we’re ready to get home so we can celebrate with her! ❤️ • If you want to send her some birthday wishes, comment below! @bcwormz will be sure to share them with her until we get home! • 📸: @eliseabigailphoto
We are still gushing over our dinner experience last night! We spent the evening at Le Grand Bistro aboard the @celebrityedge and our dinner was a fully immersive, animated experience projected directly onto the table! It was truly a unique dinner and we had an absolute blast! Swipe to see for yourself! 🎉 • We also wanted to let you all know that @celebritycruises is offering an amazing deal right now, you can book your cruise for $20 down and get 20% off airfare!

No honeymoon would be complete without a little pampering, right?! • We have far too many “favorite” things to list about this amazing trip, but the couples massage we had on board the @celebrityedge is one of our top experiences. We felt so pampered and relaxed and it was absolute perfection. We may even try to squeeze another one in before the trip ends! 🥰 #ad #sweetheartsatsea @celebritycruises
No one needs a specified day to express and receive love, give yourself permission every day! It’s so easy to get into routines and forget that the small things - grabbing a kiss as you leave for work, thanking them for folding the laundry, and saying “I love you” before ending phone calls - are the things that matter most. • Valentine’s Day is a reminder to break the routine. Whether it’s flowers, candy, or dinner, do something out of the ordinary for your significant other today. • Spending our honeymoon sailing the Caribbean over Valentine’s Day is such a beautiful experience, but not our norm. We’re both feeling extra special and loved today - we hope you are too. ❤️ • P.S. Could this wall on the @celebrityedge be anymore perfect?! #sweetheartsatsea #ad @celebritycruises #valentines
