My SuperMAN

The key to a long marriage with or without problems is:.....DRUMROLL Please!!!
  • Open, honest and positive communication (See you cannot just have communication without being honest no matter who gets hurt, open because some people shut down after they communicate, positive meaning having a solution or compromise to make it work). We are still working on this but we are soooooo much better! lol
  • Respect (See respect goes both ways and you are both important and worth it)
  • Love (See you will fall in and out of love like two high school me we did and it gets stronger each time)
  • KEEP PEOPLE OUT OF YOUR BUSINESS!!! (See there will be haters jealous of what you have and they can be family or friends. You can share information but limit the information you share unless it is to help someone better their relationship. We had them and we prayed them off!)Well I did
For more loving and positive tips on a Happy Marriage

This hotel and restaurant is a must do on your list! Ok, lets start with the warm, urban Jazzy flyer.
Now up to the Atlanta Grill for dinner and drinks on the patio over looking the streets of downtown Atlanta. A live Jazz band playing and a patio filled with couples in live and rose petals gracing the floor what more could you ask for.

Our waiter all I can say .....hummmmm sexy, polite and from another country. lol
He graced our table with a iron-cast basket of rolls, cheddar biscuits and cornbread. I screamed cornbread at a classy restaurant and he laughed.I grew up eating cornbread and collard green juice (potlicker)! lol

Then there was salad, wine and beer...yep. Beer is poured in a tall shoot glass look alike half way with a lime on the side. lol
