I am not perfect. I’m the kind of person that has accidentally flushed glasses down the toilet, lost three coats in one winter, knows exactly how many kilometres I can get when the gas gauge reads empty and despite claiming its intentionally windswept, I always seem to have big, messy, hair. I completed six years of post-secondary education, work as a marketing manager by day, and am still figuring out what I want to be when I “grow up.” I am an extrovert, love meeting new people, and am passionate about learning as much as I can about people from other walks of life. I am slightly ambitious, a bonafide perfectionist, and a crafter of creative home projects. I love Jesus, and my relationship with God inspires me to love others as He did. I love to laugh, especially at myself, but the very best movies make me cry. I am forever a optimist, a hobbyist writer, comedian, forgetter of personal possessions, and I’m probably the last person who would ever claim to be an expert on marriage. Despite all this, here I am, writing a blog for those young women, who like me, wondered “how in the world am I going to manage the sacred union of husband and wife when I can barely manage to shave my legs?”
In my mid twenties, I married my very best friend, high school sweetheart, and love of my life. Having completed both a bachelor and masters degree in business from the University of Waterloo, I’ve been a driven, academically-oriented, and independent young woman for the past several years while my then-boyfriend/fiance/now husband played hockey and went to school out of province. Now that our lives have finally joined together, I’m facing an onslaught of questions that I know other young brides and wives wonder as well. It is my mission to answer these questions, and laugh along the way.
