“Choose Together” is a mantra of ours. We believe that life together is a series of intentional choices. In our individualistic society we see how we are constantly being encouraged to live autonomously from one another, even within marriage. Since the beginning of our relationship and marriage we have desired a life fully together. No we don’t spend every moment of every day with each other, but togetherness has been a major priority of ours from the beginning. We believe that it is crucial to choose time together, with God, with each other, with our children, with community, with other creatives.
So much of what we do comes from this. We could have both easily started our own blogs, fashion, or lifestyle, or photography; but we really wanted to do this together. We LOVE working with other creatives, from this came The Blogger Collaborative. It’s so important to us that our children get to do life together with us. It has shaped everything we do from the little things to the big things; job choices, living situations, and the little things throughout our day.
We know that our model of life is not the right fit for everyone, but we also know that choosing together in the way that works best for you is so important. How can you choose together?
“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
