Delicious and Healthy Valentine’s Day Recipes

Recently I asked my husband to describe our marriage in 5 words or less. Here’s what he said:

  • Encouraging
  • Supportive
  • Fun
  • Selfless
  • Selfish

I was a little tripped up by the last one, but to have a good marriage there is a natural give and take. Yes, you absolutely have to give selflessly. But you also have to be a little selfish. And frankly, it can  be humbling and vulnerable to say, “Hey, I need some time off tonight by myself” or “I really want some girl time.” But it’s necessary in a good marriage. You’ve got to give with joy (cause your spouse will need their me time, bro time or video game time too) AND receive with joy.
