get to know the designers behind The Same Page
So how did The Same Page get started? We were newlyweds moving to a new state, excited to start the next chapter of life together! With the help of our friends and family we packed up the U-haul and drove it up to our new apartment… only to find out that it wasn’t ready. We’re talking cabinets still being painted and appliances sitting on the balcony collecting dirt and bugs not ready. We lived out of our overnight bags and in a hotel for three days, and when we finally moved in… it just got worse. Long story short, our living situation just went downhill from there. It was like one thing after another, after another, after another.
During this time we were so stressed, exhausted, and irritable our relationship was starting to take a toll. We weren’t connecting as much and we hardly had the time (or money!) for a nice date. I spent the end of that year reflecting on what areas of our relationship were neglected and how we could improve them in the coming year. I thought, “wouldn’t it be great to have a dedicated, weekly time to check in and reflect to make sure we’re on the same page?” And thus The Same Page was born.
I often questioned why God put us through that, it just didn’t seem fair. But I realize now it was so we could create a tool to strengthen our marriage and one day share that tool with you. We hope it is as much of a blessing to you as it has been for us!
