The last episode of filming was very memorable for both Bryan and I. It was the first filming in Florida that we really felt like we were home. The kids were loving it, the weather was warming up so we were able to make it to the beach, and Bryan and I were really starting to feel like a team for the first time in 3 years.
We were so excited about getting to meet with our counselor Dr. Deb Mandel for a second time. We had really learned a lot from her the first session, and were ready to invest some more time and energy into our marriage. She had a way of really digging into the root of the issue and teaching us a practical way to resolve conflict. We left feeling refreshed and renewed!
The last week of filming overall was very good, we had a lot of fun, and implemented some changes that were only going to make our life in Florida better than it already was! It was fun to see where Bryan and I had come from and where we were going, and we both like the direction that we are heading. Life can be really messy, but we have both realized if we take an active part in confronting issues head on, listen to one another, and actively try to make things better little by little everyday, we will be much happier in the long run. We are so thankful that God gave us the courage and energy to embrace our journey and all of its experiences (both good and bad). Overall, we are humbled and blessed!
