By  |  6 Comments

before we get to yes means yes, thank you for all of your support and excitement around MarriageMoon last week! in case you missed the announcement, read all about it here.

i’m currently covering shipping in the US of A! i appreciate you supporting me in this way, especially those who have already ordered! i love the final product and would be honored for it to join you on your next trip!

as i was getting ready to launch MarriageMoon, we saw that our TEDxTalk was finally uploaded! yes, i made you wait a week. they had some issues with the text on our video (i’m thinking perhaps they spelled my name like chelseeee or something) so that’s why it took forever and a day week.

i am so proud to share yes means yes with you! thank you also for those that took our survey about marriage, we used it in our speech!

hands down, this is the biggest shift in our relationship. it helps us have the happy and healthy relationship we both work to create.

share this video with your spouse and implement it. it’s not the easiest but it will absolutely make a difference in your relationship! #yesmeansyes

    I LOVED your TedxTalk (and I am sososososososo bummed I didn’t see it in person)! You guys did awesome and the concept of Yes Means Yes makes so much sense! Why don’t we just say what we mean?? Dunno, but I know I’m guilty of it, too. Gotta make K watch your talk and implement this stuff! Great job, guys!

    Nicely done. I loved all the before and after examples, making it really clear and easy for people to grasp and be able to put it into action in their own relationships.
