About Me

Italy + honeymoon + husband by my side + world’s best gelato = perfect moment

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.

  1. I guess I’m not quite a milennium….but I’m close. And I still laughed out loud while reading some of your posts so I know I’m not that old. Perhaps I can add the Gen X’s perspective where appropriate! ha.

    Looking forward to reading more!

  2. Just found your blog through http://wesothrifty.wordpress.com/ —love it!! I’m also living the young married life with dog and documenting at yepindeed.wordpress.com

  3. I’ve been married for 20 years and am curious to see what your thoughts are on marriage to prepare me for when my own children begin to think about marriage, which shouldn’t be for at least 5 years. But, really 5 years is nothing when I’ve watched my children grow up too fast.

    • Congrats on 20 years! That is such a great accomplishment and example to your kids 🙂 I hope I can offer some insights into the millennial perspective of marriage throughout my posts. I love it when others chime in because I am just one perspective… Thanks for reading!

      * One of the most talked about posts I’ve done has been the Name Change… if you read that and the comments you get some pretty interesting insights!
