I've been wanting to take this blog and turn it in to something amazing but I just didn't know… Continue reading My intentions for this blog
I've never once claimed to be perfect. I wear my flaws and emotions on my sleeves. I am beyond shy. I have insecurities about my relationship, even after almost 5 wonderful years of marriage. I don't walk around on a high horse, pretending to be someone with a perfect life with no problems. I don't… Continue reading Staying True to My Heart

High school sweethearts if you will. But as every good high school love story goes, it ended and I… Continue reading Why 2 Girls Almost Ruined My Marriage
20 and with the same guy for 4+ years. 21 and engaged. 22 and married. Why do these statements, as well as other similar ones have a negative stigma attached? Are we too young? Too naive to be in everlasting love? Too stupid to want to settle down? No. And to anyone who thinks those… Continue reading 23 things you can still do while being married before you turn 23
