Marriage is A LOT!

Marriage is A LOT.That’s not a bad thing though. The things in our lives that are a lot are usually the things that last the longest and are worth every moment. As Christians, we know when it comes to marriage it’s more than the wedding, the big gown, the number of bridesmaids, and the number…

The Symphony of Pain

As I try to wrap my mind around my uncle’s second stroke these lyrics are literally helping me keep it all together. It just might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done … To hold it together when it feels like it’s all falling from under me.  Believe me, I have done it before, but…

Marriage Fixes Everything

You’re probably laughing to yourself, and thinking, ‘um, no it doesn’t’! Well, you might be right about that, but you might also be kind of wrong about that. Marriage, on it’s own doesn’t fix anything. You can treat your marriage as a contract between two people or you can treat it as a covenant and…

I Hate this Most About Being Married

My husband and I are NOT the same, but we became one in matrimony. He and I are like combining lemon, and lime, and saying that’s one fruit. Yes, we’re both citrusy BUT I’m a lime, and he is a lemon. Limes are green, and smaller, whereas lemons are yellow and big. Don’t even get…

Conceived out of Wedlock

Unpopular opinion, but children deserve stability. They deserve a home. Coming from someone who had neither I can tell you it makes a world of a difference. That’s why I truly believe in having children in the bound of marriage, and not outside of marriage. There’s a reason why God calls couples who have taken…

Not in This House…

This structure annoys me a lot more than it should. This would work great in an ideal world, but in today’s world, it leaves most households miserable because ego is a thing, and people aren’t perfect. We live in a broken world so let’s not pretend this structure works for all of us. What God…

Catholics are Perfect

Says no one ever. It’s really, what people think we think we’re vs. what is actually true. As a cradle catholic, I remember my husband asking me tons of questions when he was going through RCIA. I was his sponsor so for some reason he thought I had all the answers. Ha, boy was he…

Don’t Get Married

Yep, I said it. Sorry, not sorry, but someone had to say it! There’s this unspoken reality about marriage that many people don’t talk about. As a Christian and a Catholic, I’m supposed to be all for marriage for everyone, BUT I’m not. I’m really not! I don’t believe that marriage is for everyone. It…

Not Accidental

I think one thing that is clear to me by now is that my story isn’t one with lots of flowers and sparkles, and I’m completely fine with that. Know why? It’s because I’ve worked hard to be the person I’m today. It’s because I know there’s nothing in the universe that happens by accident….

Yep, I’m That Girl …

So, yeah, I’m that girl who has looked up schools. That girl who has Google docs with steps and things to get done before having children. I’m that girl who wants to ensure my children have the best chance at life. So much so that I have a five-year plan that leads right up to…
