Being Married Is So Weird and Awesome

Being Married Is So Weird and Awesome

I’ve dreamed of being married for longer than I’m willing to admit here. My sister summed it up pretty well during her toast at my wedding when she talked about our days of playing Barbies together. I always wanted Barbie and Ken to live happily ever after because I dreamed of the day that I’d live happily ever after. I’ve been married for about a month and a half, and most of it has been really cool. I love that I can call Michael after grocery shopping and that he will cheerfully walk out to the parking garage and carry all of the heavy things inside. I love that he’s there to eat things that I cook for us and that he goes out of his way to show me that he loves me and that he’s committed to me. I also love that he’s willing to be tidy because I’m tidy, and messes stress me out. Ha. We’ve both experienced a lot of change in other areas as well. The changes are positive, but it’s a lot to take in all at once. (I’ll probably talk about that more later.) There are some things that I’m still adjusting to […]

I’m Getting Married Next Week!

I know I’ve said it already, but I’m getting married next week!!!!!!! Have I ever told you how we met? I shared the short version on our wedding website, michaelandkenlie.com, but I thought I’d share it here too since this site is permanent. The end of 2015 was a time of change and growth for Michael and me individually. In early December I told God that I was tired of hearing myself whine to Him about wanting to be in a healthy relationship with a Godly man. I said to God, “You know my heart, and You gave me these desires. I’m surrendering them to you right now. This is not my biggest prayer anymore. I want to fulfill your purpose, and so be enough for me. Satisfy me.” The next day Michael walked into my church for the first time. I didn’t meet him that weekend, but over the next few months I would greet him on Sunday mornings when he walked in. In February we both joined a Bible study group, and a few weeks in I jokingly admitted that pizza had been my Valentine that year. Later during the same group he mentioned that pizza was his Valentine […]

New Kids on the Block, Change and Weekend Plans

Last week was a tough week at work because my boss left. I sulked about it because I was his favorite and vice versa. I think he’ll go on to do different things that are more suited to him, but I could live without all of the changes at work right now. There’s major change happening in every area of my life right now – most of them good. It’s just a lot to take in all at once. By the end of the week I was wiped out, and my plan was to relax at home Friday night. It didn’t happen like that though, which is great, because I had a wonderful weekend. Friday night a childhood dream came true for me. I loved New Kids on the Block from the time I was 10 years old until much later than I was willing to admit. Jordan was my favorite, and he still is! I wasn’t allowed to listen to them growing up, but I always told myself that someday I’d see them in concert. Twenty-five years later it happened. I knew they were coming to New Orleans because the venue is in my neighborhood, and my friends and I seriously considered […]
