So Here’s What You Missed


Aside from reaching the big five year milestone in our marriage, Brandon and I have had so many things happening back to back. I thought I’d share what we’ve been up to in a blog post; here we go. On The Home Front   We moved into our dream apartment complex a few weeks ago!…

Five Years After I Do


Brandon and I have seen our share of great times and hard times. One thing that I’m most grateful for is that we’ve been able to maintain our friendship and grow closer over time. A lot happens in the first five years of marriage. You move in together, argue a lot about money, learn about…

Sometimes I Forget my Compassion: Working on being an Encouraging Wife


It’s easy to get caught up in our own emotions, especially if our partners aren’t as vocal about how they are feeling or what they are going through.
