Things Are Changing At Our House

We took a long walk on Veteran's Day. We both had our music and were going to listen separately as we walked. Rather than plugging in and ignoring one another, Jack decided he had some things to tell me. He complimented the way I was accepting his leadership and decisions. He felt my surrendering in many obvious ways and in many subtle ways too. I smiled ear to ear. He acknowledged the way I was learning to listen, make better choices and lean into his leadership. His compliments were genuine and loving. We continued our walk enjoying a feeling of success and pride in what we felt in our marriage.

Jack is relishing his leadership role and he enjoys the benefits of ttwd/dd. His home is full of love and his wife is following his direction............... most of the time!


  1. i think this is the sweetest thing, and i'm so glad that you have that feeling of joy and closeness in your marriage. i love the warmth in this post. i'm so happy for you and jack, mere. :) hugs, m.

    PS: i swear, when i see that darling bottom on your sidebar that says, "spanking meredith written by jack", it kills me every time. :)

    1. I want to HAVE that bottom on the side! Okay, um that sounds way creepier than I intended it to.

      Days like the one you had, are the whole reason for ttwd. The inner glow of contentment. It starts off warm from our core and radiates out until it feels like our heart is going to burst from behind our ribs. Such a nicer feeling than a burning bum isn't it?

  2. That is wonderful! There is nothing more pleasing I think than hearing our husbands say we have done well, or good girl. :) SO happy for you both.
    love Sara

  3. That is so sweet. I love getting away for a nice walk all alone.

  4. This is what it is all about. And the fact that you talked rather than walking together separately is fantastic.

  5. Oh bless, what a sweet post
    love Jan,
    P.S. I would like that bottom too!!

  6. That is so sweet that it's mutually beneficial for you both.
