Whoever thought to add sweet delicious strawberries to tart, but refreshing, lemonade was a genius.  Because strawberry lemonade is, hands down, one of my favorite drinks.  And I can’t get enough of it, especially in the summer.

And, this drink goes to show you that opposites definitely can come together to form the perfect match.  I often hear people complain about the fact that their spouse is so different from them (their exact opposite.)  But what I’ve found out is that your differences can actually be a bonus for your marriage… if you leverage them correctly.  Instead of complaining about your differences, think of them as providing your relationship with a greater perspective.  Relationship Coaches Reggie and Peachie Williams state that there is value in your differences:

Instead of fighting about the different perspectives, understand the two together provide an even greater perspective.

So this summer, while you are appreciating each other and your differences.  Take some time to enjoy a glass (or two or three or four) of the New V8 Splash®Strawberry Lemonade.  I love it because of its delicious and refreshing flavor.

Lamar tasted it for the first time the other day and he said: “That V8 Splash®Strawberry Lemonade is really good.”  And I thought: “shoot, this would have been a perfect time for us to have opposite opinions so that I could have the entire bottle all to myself.”  LOL!  But that’s never going to happen anyway, given that the kids love it too.  We left for a family road trip yesterday, and our youngest asked me if I remembered to put the V8 Splash®Strawberry Lemonade in the cooler. My dreams of having the bottle all to myself have officially been crushed!

BMWK Cruise: Inside the BMWK Marriage Cruise Swag Bag

Inside the BMWK Marriage Cruise Swag Bag

If you haven’t heard yet, we had an amazing time on the 2014 BMWK Marriage Cruise. We feel like we achieved our goal of ensuring that our cruisers had a wonderful time while enjoying the world and each other.

From the moment that they arrived, we wanted them to feel special and a major part of that initial goal was accomplished via our BMWK Marriage Cruise Swag Bag. I have to be honest. I have a thing against receiving conference bags that are full of flyers and postcards. So, we pushed to make sure our bag was full of real ‘swag’ that the cruisers would want and use.

To pull this off, we reached out to some of the companies, large and small, that support the work that we do here on BMWK.  And, they didn’t let us down. See what was inside of the BMWK Cruise swag bag below, and check back soon for our 2015 announcement on where we’ll be heading next year.

Our friends at Essence provided the cruisers with their latest issue (and this awesome note) that has First Lady Michelle Obama on the cover. One cruiser was so happy because she had left her Essence at home but could now read it during the cruise. Click here to visit the Essence Magazine website.
