Fifteen years together, five homes, four cars, two kids, and a lifetime of craziness, my hubby and will be celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary on August 7th. It’s hard to believe how quickly time flies when you’re having fun and with our recent move into a new house – there’s always time for a party. We’ll be gathering our favorites this weekend for an anniversary + housewarming + unpacking party. Jewel-Osco has about 150 years on us, but they’re celebrating their anniversary also and their way of partying is with a BIG sale! We’re in luck and will definitely need to stock up on snacks and essentials Jewel-Osco for fueling our hard-working guests. Since we shop there as our regular grocer, this sale comes at the perfect time.
In honor of this double celebration, I thought I’d feature some of their sale items and how they provide the secret to a long and happy marriage!
The Proposal + Party
I remember my proposal like it was yesterday. He asked me to be his wife on top of the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel and that’s when he put a Rold Gold ring on it. We had a party with our family and friends about eighteen months after that. No proposal story is a bad one – it’s the start of a new adventure, new fun, and a lifetime of love!
In the early months and years after you get married, I like to think of this as the Tropicana time. Freshly squeezed with a little bit of pulp as you navigate the waters together, this sweet classic is sure to remind you of those fun-loving early years.
Add a Little Variety
While my husband and I go together like Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chips in a Quaker Granola Bar, we thought we’d mix it up a little bit and add some variety by adding two little misters to our crew. Charlie came about five years in and Jack arrived two years after that. Lucky for us, Quaker makes a variety pack of granola bars also, so variety is the spice of life around here!
Spice It Up
After all this time together, we have to work to spice things up like a little Mesquite BBQ. Regular date nights, weekends away, and taking time for each other are just a few of the ways you can connect with each and keep it hot when things seem to be headed to the Cool Ranch.
Add a Little Sweetness
A little sugar goes a long way and stacking up a little sweetness always seems to smooth things over. Kindness can do a lot to ease the temperament between the two of you – a funny text, a sweet note, anything to show you care. Even Pepsi has shared that they are using real sugar, shouldn’t you?
Refresh + Recharge
When the stress of building this life weighs us down, we usually have to take some time to refresh and recharge. Having solo time with friends, exercising, or pursuing a lifelong personal goal can be like Gatorade to your relationship – refreshing and giving you the endurance to finish what you started!
Last but not least, the key to a happy marriage is to add an extra heaping of LOVE every day. When in doubt, LOVE. And the rest of your LIFE will fall into place.
