Does your spouse need a break? Do YOU need a break? In today’s podcast, we talk about what time looked like for us before and after kids, and what we’ve intentionally made time for to keep ourselves and each other from feeling like we’re losing it. 😂
We also cover that time we had a kid, how Kirsten got sucked back into a classic cult fiction series, and why this podcast could end up being a once a year thing.
Is your spouse your friend? In this episode of How To Real Life, we talk about the importance of friendship in a marriage: why it might seem obvious until you really break it down, and ideas on how to stay friends once you’re married.
So this site has been collecting cobwebs over the last year, but that is about to change and we are STOKED to dust it off! Over the last few months we have been talking about how we can basically relaunch the site (aka: start writing again and hopefully engage in a new community here online). We have come up with a few ideas that we will begin sharing in the next week or two.
The above image is a sneak peek into one of the “projects” we have been working on and that project will launch here in the next 7 days!
Once again we are very excited to engage in this type of community once more and this time we are praying that we continue to find the time and energy to pour into it. I mean why wouldn’t we… we are about to have baby #2 in the next three weeks!
It’s crazy to think that Noah turned 1 on the 7th of this month. It seems like just yesterday we were leaving the hospital with the little guy and heading home wondering if we could do this. The last 12 months went by quite fast, faster than we thought it would. And yes, we were told that the days would fly by after having kids. Over the months we have had a multitude of thoughts, feelings, adventures, memories, and moments.
And the other day all of the above adjectives happened at once.Read More »
A few weeks back Kirsten took on her first job since becoming a mom. It had been about 10 months since Noah was born and she was nervous. The job was babysitting our neighbor one to two times a week. The best part about this job is that she gets to stay with Noah while doing it. While it’s nice for her to be able to stay home while working and be with her son, there are still stressful days. She is, after all, taking care of both a one-year-old and a two-year old!
Always laugh when you can. It’s cheap medicine.

So today (Tuesday, and her day to babysit), I wanted to keep her laughing and smiling. Whether the day was stressful or they were having a great time at the park together, laughter never hurts a situation. So for Day 3 of our #31CreativeWays adventure 🚀 laughing was a main priority for the Paschals. So…Read More »
