  1. Monica, this is MARVELOUS and you look wonderful! I think this video was downright courageous of both of you and would love to see you do more. I plan to post this on the Physician Family Facebook page just as soon as I finish this comment! Great work!

  2. Hey Monica, loved your vid, and I would NEVER have even noticed your hair thing if you hadn’t pointed it out.

    Keep it coming.

    That was funny and so ridiculously true. Dave is a trooper… the kind of guy all girls need.

  4. You guys are so adorable together! Nice to meet you Dave!

    Thanks for the tips.

    Loved it! You guys remind me a lot of my husband and I, but we’ve only been married for 2 years–dated for 11 though, so I guess we do have some experience under our belts ๐Ÿ˜‰ I loved all 1-10! I think if I had to add one I’d add trying something new together on a regular basis (alone or as a family). I find Jeff and I connect the most (and have the most fun too!) when we’re stepping outside our typical go-to activities. This can be something as simple as trying out a new restaurant or something as big as taking a trip to a new place you’ve never been to! Thank you for this video and I can’t WAIT for the next one!!

  6. Loved the video and your tips! I shared it with the ladies at work! About how often do you guys try to do date nights? That’s something I want to start doing!

  7. Loved it!! Dave did great. Congrats!

  8. Y’all are too stinking cute, and I am so glad we got to “know” Dave a little more! It’s so funny, Nate works in video production, but getting him to be the one in front of the camera? NO WAY! Haha Dave’s a brave man ๐Ÿ™‚

    You guys are great. Love the video. So great to see you both together. Congrats to Dave on his debut.

    1. My wife mentioned she thought this was informative and humorous. I watched it and am claiming credit for 1, 2, 3, and 10. Also, I think Dave looks best from the eyebrows down, so kudos for framing him so.

  10. This was great! Thanks so much for sharing. I love your Vlogs ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great video! We are in a season of life where my hubby needs support from me. He is away 4 nights a week as he is going for his masters then moving our family to go for his PhD. He needs from me the moral support only a wife can give. I need to remember this is just a season! Sometimes hard for me to remember!

  12. Great advice! Thanks for sharing. We find the same things work for us as well.
    Keep things fun, communicate and find time to be together! Words to live by, I think.

  13. Monica you are a good driver,do you remember these words from our past,lucky Dave,this was so good,it will hit home with so many,you guys are so great,I admire you for doing this video, keep it going,I want to learn more.

    1. haha, Yes Bidda==those words are familiar! ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re so sweet. You could teach us youngun’s as well. (haha)
      Aloha!!

  14. Great tips, but also just great to hear your voices again. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Say hi to Dave for me!

  15. Most. Adorable. Couple. EVER!!!! You guys are so sweet!!! Thanks for such a great video!!! Really enjoyed it. I don’t have anything to add, but, so much of it resonated with me about my marriage with Paul. We’ll be married 15 years this year and it’s amazing how the time flies. I really agree with everything you said about making time for each other, setting aside time for date nights, having fun together, etc. Growing up, my mother gave me the advice: “marry someone who makes you laugh, who has a good sense of humor. Because that will help you both get through the good and bad times together.” And I am SO glad I took her advice!! Paul cracks me up and I love spending time with him. And he’s so silly with our son, Tommy, it makes me happy to think that Tommy will make his future spouse laugh, too!! I also really agree with the importance of girl time, too. I belong to a playgroup that began before our babies could crawl, and now some of our kids are in school full day and we still meet weekly. It’s served so many purposes over the years, to compare child-rearing notes, support each others life ups and downs, etc. and as you said, it takes some of the pressure off the spouse. ๐Ÿ™‚ Even for Moms who aren’t stay-at-home Moms, you can connect with the other Moms at soccer practice on the weekends or at the playground or whatever. I really loved your video, Monica and Dave–keep up the great work!! Thank you!!

  16. You two are so cute!! And almost 18 years married?? That is so awesome! Dave reminds me a lot of my husband, Bob. Laid back, funny and lets me do all the talking. As if guys have a choice.. ha ha. I was cracking up out loud at Dave saying women have 150k words a day to say and guys say 150 words. So true! ha ha ha. One thing that Bob and I have that helps our marriage is to always be each other’s best friend. That helps with so much when we talk about things, confide in each other, vent to each other etc. It lets us remember that we aren’t taking things out on each other or that anything is the other one’s fault ( well most of the time.. ha ha) but that we listen as a friend as well as spouse.

    hi dave & monica! it’s kindy. thanks for the chit chat. I can’t even remember what anniversary josh & I have coming up. I think it’s 15? we need to improve on #1-10 ๐Ÿ™‚ and josh is the talker…for sure. love you guys! ~kindy

  18. That was great! Y’all are adorable. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m looking forward to some more marriage insight. We’re on year 6 of marriage so I certainly don’t feel qualified to give advice but the ten things on your list certainly resonate with me. (Although in this season we are in of life, #7 seems rather unattainable right now – lol!)

  19. Did Dave use all his 150 in this video alone?

    Oh and Dave, apparently your 18th wedding anniversary is coming up. You better be planning a big #7 for it. Just know that it doesn’t really count as a “date night”, anniversaries are stand alone in that regard.
