Guest Post: Lori from A Crazy Walk on the Safe Side.

Hey, lovelies! 
I am Lori of A Crazy Walk on the Safe Side
And I am SO happy that Valerie has asked me to guest post today... {is she not the sweetest thing?!} 
Since she just celebrated her first anniversary...  it got me thinking about my own {2nd} wedding anniversary, which is just a few weeks away.

Since obviously I am an expert a slightly credible source i thought it would be fun to post a little about what I've learned to be the secrets to a successful, happy marriage {seriously, we've {almost} been married 2 years ya'll... that's an eternity in Hollywood}.
laugh together.
He will leave the seat up. and you will undoubtedly fall in the toilet at least once in the middle of the night. Your husband will probably laugh his head off when you tell him about your wet tushie problems at 2 am- try to laugh about it, too. (and next time, look before you squat)

pick your battles/don't nag.
He will be a repeat offender of at least one thing that drives you nuts. (For me, its socks on the floor. For some reason, the hubs will NEVER ever put his smelly socks in the dirty clothes).
give up complaining about it.

don't clean too often.
Seriously. You want your hard work appreciated, so wait JUST long enough so your efforts do not go unnoticed.

compromise. 
Slowly get rid of the items from your man's bachelor days- but let him keep that ONE thing he loves. (For my hubs- it is an old stretched out CAT tshirt... yeah, like the construction equipment). I got rid of all of the shirts with cut off sleeves, light wash jeans, ratty old boxer shorts, and faded polo shirts and he got to keep his beloved tshirt. its all about compromise, people ;)

On a more serious note, I leave you with these three pieces of advice...
1. Surround yourself with healthy, happy couples who are supportive of your marriage.

2. Don't compare yourself to other couples. I believe that every relationship is different and each couple has their own unique struggles. 

3. Never ever talk badly about each other on social media. It is amazing how often i log into facebook and see people trash talking their significant other. Nothing good comes of it.

Thank you, Valerie for having me! I hope ya'll liked my post... please visit my blog sometime. I'd love to "meet" you!
