Sleep on it...

Ah the bedroom


A place to rest. Replenish energy


And of course, connect with your other half


Look, we are married, so oftentimes we will refer to the significant relationship in anyone’s life as their marital one


But we don’t do it to invalidate anyone else’s experience


Rather, we do it because everything we talk about in Clarke & Carrie’s Place, has been learned by us firsthand


We have to speak our own truths, just as surely as you must speak yours


We are two people who historically aren’t great at relationships


We’ve both been less than ideal partners in the past


And we‘ve experienced some pretty steep learning curves together, too.

We‘ve often heard it said that marriage is a lot of hard work


However, like so many of our most important life lessons


It feels more authentic for us to say:


Marriage is a lot of practice.


We practice:


honesty • intimacy

•trust

•respect

•love


And many more skills that we will get to, all in good time


Our marriage is honestly our greatest achievement


We are really good at being married to each other. And a great husband / wife in general


We take pride in this, because none of it came naturally


We learned what not to do. And who we didn’t want to be


And, through patience, mutual support and a lot of rehearsal


We evolved into the kind of unity we didn’t even know existed


And still we continue to grow together

We will never be done making This marriage better

A lot of it actually comes from spending time in our C&C garden

So if you haven‘t had a wander round there yet, please make sure it’s somewhere you visit soon


But a lot of the aspects of what makes our collective mental well-being so strong, we will be sharing in here


If you are dating, or single right now, this is still the place for you. so worry not


Life to us is one big circle of experiences


We guarantee we’ve been where you are, at several points in our own lives


So you won’t ever feel excluded


We will also be discussing sleep, as it’s something that is inseparable with mental health, in all its facets


We look forward to seeing you here again soon,


C&C x

I wanna text you up

(PS please tell us you are old enough to remember Color Me Badd, or we surely cannot be friends!) This is a couples-centric post. They aren’t always like this. How could they be? Carrie was single for

Reaction or Response?

Do you know the difference? Until 3 years ago, I didn’t! (Clarke) We ‘react’ to situations all the time in our everyday lives. A ‘reaction’ is dictated by the dominant emotion in that given moment

Judge a man by his questions...

A wise man once said, allegedly, according to other qualified wise people in my life. The most common question I get asked by Carrie is: “Where’s my phone?” Seriously. 2 or 3 times an hour. It’s gotte
