Callie and I just celebrated four years of marriage. We have had a lot of ups and downs over these past four years, and we wanted to celebrate by recording an episode together. We both are very organized people that like to have a lot of rules about how we operate which has made for some interesting conversations in the past. We do a lot of planning each week at our weekly “Porch Talk” meeting so we can properly get everything done each week.
Despite all of this, there are still a lot of things we need to work on, but we strive to communicate and continually learn what works for us as a couple and family. In this episode, we also talk about Callie’s journey of becoming a mother after finishing undergrad, becoming a PhD student, and pivoting multiple times to now be a working mother that is devoted to her family.
I really enjoyed recording this episode (despite all the retakes because we could not contain our laughter) and hope you got some value from our story.
