What I have found to be one of the most important things about working with your husband is maintaining your relationship as husband and wife first. When we are in our busy season it's so easy to talk to one another like we're strictly business partners. We went down that road when we first started our business and I can remember thinking, is this how our relationship is going to feel from now on? Like we're businesses partners and not husband and wife? I think because I realized I did not like the way our relationship felt when we were working we made a conscious effort to change the way we spoke and treated one another while working. Even the smallest gesture, like him having a hand on my leg while we type emails reminds me that I'm his wife first, business partner second.
I feel so fortunate to be married to someone who shares the same creative passion as I do. Collaborating with him on various projects has been such a blessing in our marriage and I thank my lucky stars that we totally get one another. We dream big together and that's one of the things I love most about our relationship.
Images were taken by our insanely talented friend Gina from Kiwi Street Studios at our very first Flea in June of 2011. The photos she took from that day are still some of my very favorite ever of the flea in action. Such a fond memory!
