Practical Ways to Prepare Yourself for Marriage

Hello friends!

Sully and I are coming up on our 6 month wedding anniversary, ah! It seems like a momentous milestone. Obviously it’s also a very small one and I’m still quite new at this whole wife thing. However, you guys seem interested in this side of my life and I wanted to make a post where I could share some things that have helped me in my marriage without pretending like I’m an expert now or something. I landed on this topic since I’ve at least been married long enough to start seeing how aspects of my life before marriage affected my life today.

All that to say… today I wanted to share a few things I’ve been pondering on the subject of living in preparation for marriage. This post is mostly written for young women who are currently unmarried or living at home, but it also applies to young men in a similar fashion. And if you’ve been married longer than I have and can actually speak from experience, I’d love to hear your advice in the comments! 🙂 Either way, I hope you enjoy reading my thoughts.

A Tour of Our Small Town

Hello friends!

Sully and I live right outside the most photogenic little town – close enough to walk there for dates but far enough to be off of Main Street. We took a stroll to our favorite gelato shop the other evening and I finally brought my camera along for a photoshoot. 

I haven’t done much architecture photography, growing up on a farm as I have, but I’d like to do more. Sully patiently waited as I made many short, excited detours to snap a shot of an interesting subject or location. I love how the pictures turned out! Enjoy this peaceful fall tour of our small town.

A Tour of My New House!

Hello friends!

I’ve been having a marvelous time “setting up house” and making our new space pretty and comfortable. Sully and I are renting a cute little house right outside a cute little town about 20 minutes from my family’s farm. We love it here, and I can’t wait to show you guys around!

If you like interior decorating (or just want to snoop around my bookshelves and cupboards – I won’t judge), I made this post for you. I’ll link lots of the decorations and furnishings we received from our Amazon wedding registry in case you’d like to add any to your own home as well.

Okay, please come on in!

Honeymoon Pictures Pt. 1 {Palm Trees & Disney Springs}

Hello friends!

Sully and I had a wonderful honeymoon at his family’s favorite Florida vacation spots – Vero Beach for a few nights and Saratoga Springs for a couple more. We had such a fun time enjoying the beach, playing mini golf, eating good food, and exploring Disney Springs. I took so many pictures of the beach when we went to see an ocean sunrise that I’ll have to make a separate post for those. Meanwhile, here are a few of the pictures I took of pretty Florida scenery and some of our vacation adventures. Enjoy!
