How Do You Make Time For Your Partner? (A Video)

Over the past few years, we've been sharing our love for Plum Organics with you. It's no secret that our love for them is wrapped in convenience and health, but more importantly, in messaging. As a brand by parents, for parents, they’ve always encouraged less fuss and more power, when it comes to children and parents, seemingly tying what we need and what and what our children need and want into one small but mighty package.

Not too long ago, at an event Plum co-hosted, I sat in a room with industry favorites, all discussing the myth of balance in the work space. I left truly inspired by the women in that room; CEOs, Artists, and so many more who shared a wealth of "me toos." So when Plum reached out about their newest campaign; Do Your Part(ner), a movement about encouraging parents to make time for their relationships, sans guilt, I was immediately interested. Not because conversations about sex remains on the table for me, more-so because I believe intimacy between partners with little children remain at a family's core.

Here's what Peter and I have to say on the topic...




Are you finding it tough to date your partner in-between schedules, diaper changes, and general life stuff? Plum's unfiltered and unique campaign is striving to change the way we parents see time with one another, especially this Valentine's Day. And of course a kid-brand has everything to do with this. In the grand scheme of things, happy parents means happy families. Which, well, depending on who you talk to, means more babies.

What goals are you setting for your relationship this month? To start, take the quick  pledge (just as we did) to make love a priority. (The little videos are hilarious too.)

  3. I love it!! The way you two are so great for each other is great inspiration. Being able to communicate is key to any type of relationship. Also having a balance with kids is also needed to keep your love and marriage in order. I think him making coffee is so sweet. Though I live a few min from my significant other, between my multiple jobs and school and his job and school there's no time. We have no children just a cat each lol. I'm older and seems to be the one who really tries to incorporate things to do with each other. More effort is needed.

  4. Loved this! The point is its the small things. Even with how you touch his neck and the nape of his hair and the way he smiles and looks at you...these small gestures are what keeps refilling the love tank. Small things with intension will always create great strength and oneness in a couple. So refreshing to see. Makes me miss my husband even more while he's at work. Lots of love and light to you both. Namaste
