We’re often asked how in the world we have a hot + connected marriage, let alone work together in business as husband-and-wife while raising young children. The question is often followed by “Isn’t that a LOT of time together?!” 

Yes, we spend a lot of time together. And we like it that way. LOVE actually.

For us, the little moments have been glue during the more challenging times in our everyday life + the icing on the cake during the sweeter times. As a result, we’ll always prioritize small yet meaningful ways to keep our marriage strong.

In this episode, Courtney is sharing a topic we both feel is highly underrated in conversations about intimacy — the idea that small efforts can yield big love in our relationships + 4 of our favorite small ways we yield big love in our marriage.
