2017: A Year In Review

With the new year fast approaching, we’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on what 2017 meant to us.

Our Wedding Weekend: Part 2

I woke up early, and the house was already busy with people running around. We headed out to our hair appointment at 8am, and met the rest of the girls at the salon.

The Vows We Make Long Before Marriage

Marriage is seen as one of the biggest commitments that two individuals can make, next to being parents. You stand before each other, vowing to love one another for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, til death do you part.

Celebrating Our Five-Year Anniversary

This past Saturday, Kyle and I celebrated five full, beautiful years of being together. Five years of so much love, patience, and kindness, that I often look back and get lost in how much has happened.  We have been through so many amazing experiences and changes, all wrapped into the twists and turns of my favorite love story.

To The Girl Who Reminded Me That I’m “Just” a Girlfriend

Throughout the military community, I’ve met so many wonderful people. I’ve met people who are far more supportive, encouraging, and understanding than anyone I had in my life previously. Continue reading “To The Girl Who Reminded Me That I’m “Just” a Girlfriend”
