I like to consider myself as a go-with-the-flow kind of gal. The kind of girl that is spontaneous and likes to mix things up! However, when it comes to family traditions, I am as far from go-with-the-flow as possible. I am definitely a traditionalist when it involves family, especially around the holidays! Growing up, my whole extended family lived within 10 miles of our home in Central PA. Living so close to one another provided many opportunities to get together… in fact, every Sunday we would go to MeMe & PopPop’s house for dinner and fun with the cousins! The holidays provided just another excuse to get together with everyone and do something memorable together!

Chris and I are go-getters. For the past almost thirty years, if we’ve wanted something, we’ve worked hard and strived to attain it. Usually, Type A, slightly over-achievers like us see problems as mountains that can be moved or climbed. So, you can imagine our frustration, when, for the first time as a married couple, we faced a mountain that we couldn’t budge, let alone move: Infertility.

The idea was that in order to have a great marriage couples should each be responsible for 50% of the marriage. Each couple should share the household chores. Each couple should work to come to agreements even if it is a compromise.
