Praying With Intent

When I was single there were many nights I would lay awake at night thinking about my future marriage. What struggles would we face, what joys would we share, what adventures would we embrace together? I read articles, some books, and talked to a lot of friends about what marriage was to them or for them and how they […]

Embracing The Loneliness

Loneliness. It’s not something people talk about within a marriage – but it happens a lot in military marriages. I am no expert; Eddie & I have only been married just over a month and have been living together for three weeks – but man I’ve learned a lot in the last month. Since I’ve moved to […]

Small Moments Of Beauty

Sunday night was beautiful; but not in the traditional way we are so used to boxing beauty within. Eddie & I went for a workout together and then a splurge meal on sushi (yes counter productive, it was our cheat meal). As dinner started to wrap up my head began to pound and by the time […]

relationship | a backstory…eddie

(( this is a long one, so prepare yourself)) …it’s weird for me to write our story because i feel like it’s still so new. it’s almost like i’m afraid of jinxing something – you know like you write about it and then it ends 😉 but it’s also not this picture-perfect thing. something that […]

with valentines day right around the corner, i thought i would shed a little light on the subject of singleness. this time of year (especially after the holidays) can feel a little lonely – and i’ve found that i even get a little sad at all of the love being thrown around. it isn’t that i’m […]
