Hey friends, thought we’d do a little reintroduction post (it’s been a while). I’m the Jacquie behind Jacquie & Ryan. 👋🏾 Usually, the voice behind our captions and the person you’re chatting with in the DMs since this is my full time gig. Literally, still pinching myself! Ryan works at a particle physics laboratory & injects his perspectives into our dates and much of our mindful marriage content. Prepare to see more of him, his hot takes, thoughts and opinions in our stories this year. Lucky you 😉. We’re in our mid 30’s, married for 3.5 years, and highly value experiences & connection. So it brings us a lot of joy to share ways for you to explore and connect (more) with your person. You can find us planning weekend getaways throughout the Midwest, going on dates around Chi & the burbs(+ at home), and learning ways to intentionally grow in our marriage. Anyway, enough about us… time for you to introduce or re-introduce yourself! Say hey in the comments w/ your name & area you’re following from. I’ve noticed a lot of faces lately that I haven’t connected with in comments or DMs. Even if you’re a quiet follower, I want you to know I see and appreciate you. I literally couldn’t call this my job without you. So, thanks for hanging out in our little corner of the internet. We love it here and hope you do too!

❄️ Winter Getaways - Part 2 ❄️ If you’ve never been to @lodgekohler in Green Bay Wisconsin, you’ll be in for a treat when you visit this winter. We had an incredible stay last year at this four diamond hotel situated right accross the street from the iconic Lambeau Field and in the heart of Titletown District (a fun outdoor complex with free communal games, shops, restaurants and more). We scheduled spa services both days we were there, ate incredible meals from their rooftop restaurant and enjoyed their cafe in the mornings. We never left @titletown and we had no need to. We just relaxed. #midwesttravel #midwestblogger #chicagoblogger #lodgekohler #midwestlivingmag #travelinfluencer #weekendgetaways #midwestgetaway #roadtrip

If you or your partner’s love language is Quality Time, try this… 👇🏾 quality & deeper conversation schedule date nights do a chore or task with them surprise them with a lunch date ask connection questions share & listening intently show interest in/join in on their hobbies run errands together turn off the tv & talk play a boardgame/do a puzzle together 📌Save this post for later (or if it’s your love language, share it with your partner). While love languages aren’t the be all end all to your relationship, it certainly doesn’t hurt to be aware of the ways yourself and your partner best respond to and show affection and love. This knowledge just helps to guide some of your actions and gestures in a more intentional direction and we are all about being intentional with our spouses and partners around here. What’s your love language? The one with the most replies is what we will share next!

Leave a ❤️ in the comments if you would wear matching VDay lingerie with your spouse or partner! Oh and swipe ⫷— to see my personal faves from this Valentine’s Day Collection. I’m obsessed with the last set 🔥. And I’m obsessed with @mentionables because they’re woman owned, size inclusive (XS-3X), all their pieces are super flattering and 𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘶𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 comfortable, plus they never use models… so you can shop without comparison or with your partner if you want. 📌 my affiliate code “JACQUIE10” saves you 10% off storewide at ShopMentionables.com #dateyourspouse #marriagegoals #couple #valentinesday2023 #vday #valentinesdayideas #coupleshoot

Pov: You go to the spa and you’re greeted with a beer. You hang out in a salt room for a bit before getting a facial. Then you spend some time in the sauna & steam rooms before you soak in beer while eating a snack… 👌🏾 & of course sipping a beer. Beer optional, but prepare to leave RELAXED 🧖🏾‍♀️ 📍 @pivabeerspa #beerspa #datenight #chicagogram #explorechicago #thingstodoinchicago

What makes a perfect weekend getaway for you? 🛣️ For us it’s a little nature, cute shops, great dining, arts, and friendly people. La Crosse, Wisconsin hit it right on the nose for us. They have lots of places to grab a drink (wineries, breweries, distilleries), incredible restaurants, lovely places to stay and so much outdoor fun. Wanna go snowshoeing anyone?

I heard this sound today and it made me think about my dad. When he was sick with stage 4 cancer, he told me to get out and see and do things while I still could. To go live my life NOW because tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. He shared his regrets.. mostly about things he didn’t do and experiences he never had, and it changed the way I looked at life. Work hard, sure. But live now and create a life you love NOW… not one you’ll look forward to enjoying later. Because no one is guaranteed tomorrow. ib: @dravonrangel #livenow #interracialcouple #creatememories #love

Entering a new year with some new #MindfulMarriageMonday sentiments 🫶🏾 This year we are wanting to continue being intentional in our marriage as we keep growing, maturing and evolving together. We love what we’ve cultivated so far but the truth is that our relationship is maturing from the early stages into a more transitional stage as we both get older and face new challenges together. And we want to make sure we are being Conscious Partners to one another through it all. Marriage is never perfect but it can be intentional, conscious, mindful… all of that and more. 📌 Save for Later ✨Holding each other accountable ✨Consciously creating a life together ✨Healing generational traumas & ending cycles ✨Shared safety, security, and peace ✨Witnessing & celebrating each other’s evolution ✨Gifting each other with radical honesty If you could pick only one of the above, which one would you start working on TODAY? #conciousliving #relationshipgoals #beating50percent #dateyourspouse #marriedlife #husbandandwife #marriedtomybestfriend #couplesgoals

Wishing you the Happiest New Year! 🥂 2022 was fun, adventurous, and full of growth (though not without its challenges) but we have even higher hopes for 2023. We are incredibly thankful for each and every one of you who supported our endeavors and joined us in our adventures, dates and journey to build an intentional marriage. You all make this so much fun and we are lucky to have connected with so many of you this year either in person, through our DMs, or conversations here on IG. Swipe ⫷— through to see some relationship goal setting resources we love + save this to help you and your partner start the year off right. Pro Tip: create an IG collection/folder just for relationship or marriage tips you love. I have a huge collection that I reference often and it really helps me stay intentional, creative, & mindful in our marriage. #happynewyear2023 #relationshipgoals #marriedlife

@aireancientbaths_us has been on our bucketlist for a long time and we finally got to experience this gem last month, and for us, it was worth the wait. It’s definitely a splurge experience/date but spending hours slipping in and out of their 7 baths (hot, cold, jetted), steam rooms and salt baths is one of the most relaxing and meditative experiences I’ve had in a very long time. Definitely a gift worthy experience or something to consider for VDay (which is right around the corner). Have you had the pleasure of experiencing AIRE yet? Or is it in your Bucketlist too? @choosechicago #ChicaGoAndKnow #aireancientbaths #chicagogram #thingstodoinchicago #datenight
