Rule 024 | Use Caution When Giving Your Real Last Name To Strangers

MIF Rule 24

This week, The Peppers are chatting with a dynamic duo that they know you will love! Michelle + Kelly DLux are fellow love enthusiasts, and the husband / wife team behind a new photo series called Creative Marriages

We are so excited to introduce you to two of our favorite friends, and can't wait to have them share the heart behind their own search for Great Love. In this episode, we talk about taking an intentional approach to a weekly sabbath, what it means to balance social media with being an attentive spouse, and how interracial relationships can be the cause of both blessings and challenges.

The Peppers AND The Dluxes would LOVE to hang with you over the upcoming weeks, so join us for the Creative Marriages gallery showing on Sunday, February 14th and get excited for the Great Love Getaway coming up in April!

TRIGGER QuestionS:

  • Does your partner have any major fears that you've learned to accept? 
  • How do you and your partner prioritize rest together? What would your own version of a #dluxsabbath look like?
  • Do you believe in the concept of having one singular soul mate on the entire planet?
