 6 Things Happy Things Do

We each share our top three things we think help contribute to having a healthy and happy relationship.

Happy couples…

  1. Have cheap and easy ways to connect as a couple – and both people should be committed to making them happen.
  2. Have "their things"
  3. Have a continuing conversation about the relationship
  4. Say things out loud
  5. Practice selfless love
  6. Assume the best of each other, and then look for it

Qwixx is the quick and fun dice game that Kelsey loves.


Kelsey is obsessed with Hamilton after seeing the production. Erica is feeling amazing in her new Wit and Wisdom Ab-solution Stretch Skinny Jeans.

  1. On the weekend I made a batch of cookie dough to put in the freezer ready to have freshly baked cookies with my husband YAY! and I’m considering ordering Qwixx as well as we love playing games and doing puzzles but haven’t done much of this since having our daughter just over a year ago. Thanks for these simple and great ideas on how to connect with your partner and be a happy couple 🙂

  2. This is so awesome! We are still going strong on our weekly cookie date nights and I hope it’s a great ritual for you guys, too.
