Dont’s For Wives

A lady by the name of Blanche Ebbutt wrote these golden pearls of wisdom back in 1913. I first bought this book at a gift shop for mindless airplane reading, but I was enthralled immediately and spent a great deal of time compiling the tips that spoke to me the most. I figured I might as well try and help all of you while I’m helping myself, so here you go! I’m preparing for a baby and our 5 year wedding anniversary in a couple of months, and in a constant desire for improvement and growth in my marriage. Investing time in the emotional bank accounts is a biggie for me, and can be challenging with our crazy schedules. It’s a constant beautiful and trying learning experience for me. Basic human emotions and struggles never change, even after 100 years. Some of these are a bit old-fashioned & rigid, but funny nonetheless. I hope you love this as much as I do! Next up, my other half Christopher is reading her book “Dont’s for Husbands”. I’m very excited. Please leave comments with your thoughts!

    This is fabulous! Yup, just as relevant & instructive today as it was 100 years ago, and just as relevant for me at 29 years married as it for you at almost 5. Thank you so much, Holly, for sharing this! Cheers to you and hubby and baby on the way 🙂

    I don’t know how you find the time to create and perform such beautiful music, tour, and tend to such a fun and inspiring blog — but I, for one, am thoroughly inspired! I have a feeling you’re going to be a wonderful mother! Keep on keepin’ on, my friend! xx, ~kirsten

    Love this!!! Have been married 10 years this August, some of these tips would’ve been helpful for the first few years but most of them should carry on always!
