I’m not really sure how to talk about this because it is such a tough topic but I need to voice. Let me start by saying I love my husband no matter how frustrated I get with him. We have only been married 3 weeks but being married, let alone living with a veteran is […]
Too much hate going on in our society; along with terrorism, and many uncontrollable world disasters, such as Hurricane Harvey; Irma; and Maria, so why must we be hateful to other people.
Behind closed doors you have no clue what someone is going through, so why add the extra stress on top of what they may […]
Long-distance relationships are hard. And when I say that I don’t mean because of the obvious. Unlike The T.V. Show, 90-Day Fiancee, Chris and I don’t glorify our relationship with cameras.

My heart sank and yet I was certain I misunderstood. He spoke to share information with his boss and ended it with a […]
WORTH THE WAIT: 3 WAYS TO REACH THE MARRIAGE YOU DESIRE
One of my biggest pet peeves is waiting. I particularly hate waiting for something to not have it come when expected. It’s the worse.
Let me clarify, I loathe the anticipation of an event; the evaluation with a supervisor, the results of a test, I resort […]
Marriage is a whole lot of give and take with some tug of war in the middle. Marriage is years of project management mixed in with anger management. I could go on and on with what marriage is but this is in dedication to what marriage shouldn’t be.
