Going strong! Ashley Tisdale is constantly gushing over her husband, Christopher French, on social media and refreshingly enough, she does the same IRL. “It’s been great,” the longtime actress, 34, told Life & Style exclusively of the pair’s connection. “I’ve been married for five years …  it feels like yesterday we got married!”

As for how things have evolved for the pair? Ashley and Christopher, 37, are all about talking things out. “I would just say communication is a really big thing, no matter what. That could be any kind of relationship — friends, parents, boyfriend or husband,” the New Jersey native expressed at The Grove’s 18th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting. “I think that communication is the key to really being honest with yourself and the other person. I think that that is a big part of a relationship.”

We bet good communication especially comes in handy over the holidays! After all, traveling and in-laws can be stressful. Thankfully, Ashley and her musician hubby already have their game plan ready to go this year. “Really just relaxing with my family! I’ve been really busy for the past year. I feel like I’ve been celebrating Christmas all year round because I did a Netflix series in the summertime that was Christmas-related,” Ashley explained, referring to Merry Happy Whatever

“Things are staying local. Right now, I’m renovating the house,” the High School Musical alum added. “We are trying to get through that. Hopefully, the kitchen will be done. When I’m working all the time, I like to just chill.” Sounds like an idyllic way to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year, if you ask us!

Speaking of celebrations, Ashley recently reunited with her Disney Channel bestie Vanessa Hudgens for a Friendsgiving get-together. As much as we love fawning over Ashley’s marriage to Christopher, we can’t help but get all the feels from seeing Gabriella and Sharpay together all these years later! *Alexa, play “We’re All in This Together.”
