Mark and I's anniversary is coming up this weekend and with impending anniversaries usually comes a good deal of nostalgia. I was looking through wedding pictures and remembered an audio piece that I did about marriage, back when I was doing the school thing. I thought why not put the two together? So here you have it, a voice documentary that I did on marriage, paired with engagement and wedding pictures of me, Kaya, and the Mister. Yes, we had a kid and then got married. And to be perfectly honest, I wouldn't change any of it for all the money in on this planet. My life, my choices, my daughter have all made me into the beautiful mess that I am today. Perfectly imperfect and that's just the way I like it. Please keep in mind while listening, that putting together an audio documentary is ridiculously complex, that I'm a a novice at these things, that I had a good time making it, and that it is very far from perfect.
With that in mind, and without further ado....get ready to be entertained!

If you liked this, I did another audio piece on motherhood a while back. You can check that out here.

*On another note, I will be taking the rest of the week off to spend with my family. I'm actually going to get two whole nights alone with my husband! (ooh-la-la) So you won't see me on here until next Monday the 26th. I will probably be randomly Instagraming (because I'm obsessed)
 so check in there if you're interested. Enjoy your holiday.
I hope that it's drama free, filled with gratitude, relaxing, and spent with the ones you love most!


  1. So this was pretty amazing. I love the line about being each others number one fan...Great!

  2. Excellent thoughts. I think people these days like to take the east way out. Preservance is the key. Nice post.

  3. LOVED this! Such beautiful thoughts about the journey of marriage. By the way, beautiful decorations at your wedding! Did your mom help with that?

  4. @Candice I actually wrote that in my vows to this man. Might be a nod to my days as a cheerleader. Either way, I think it's an alternative way to think about being there for each other. Glad you like it!

  5. @Anonymous #1 it is much more socially acceptable to get divorced these days. I think that some use this to their advantage. Marriage is not easy and you need two willing people to make it work. 90% of the time it's just about pushing through when times are hard and knowing that eventually it will be good again!

  6. @anonymous #2 I'm going to go on a wild hunch and say that you are my mother :) I was lucky that my mama is an ex-florist and decorator! I loved my wedding!
