I don’t know about you, but I am already looking forward to next summer and the plans that my husband and I have already started putting into place. One of the items on our list is attending the first ever Black and Married with Kids “Seminar at the Sea”. I don’t know if I’m more excited because hubby and I have never been on a cruise, or because this will be our first kid-free vacation since 2009, when we had our “babymoon” in Jamaica. So now that we’ve completed our family and are back to sleeping through most nights, it’s time to kick it up a notch!
Although I’m sure I’ll be near tears as we’ve never left the kids at the same time for this long, I know that we need this. I know that we have to continue to put in the work (and fun) to maintain a happy marriage, despite the challenges that may come our way. One of those ways is to surround ourselves with other couples who are also in happy marriages so that we can fellowship, learn from and interact with them. While I teach the importance of learning how to first love yourself as a mom and wife, it’s also important to find time to reconnect with your spouse (and make your marriage a priority) so that you can set the standard for your children.
So here are 5 reasons why we’re going on the 2014 BMWK Marriage Cruise, and why you should be joining us too:
