My Story

I’m a newlywed-wife, and a recent implant to the big city of Kansas City, Missouri. Wyatt and I got married on July 9, 2011 in Sedalia, where we were high school sweethearts, and took off on a whirlwind roadtrip honeymoon.

Now we’re home, he’s back at work and I’m a freelance writer, blogger, and amateur home-maker. But that’s just my day job. By night, I’m an aspiring author looking for a career as…well…something.

So while we’re figuring out how to get by, how to get around, and mostly just how to get used to this crazy, awesome life together that makes up a marriage, I’ll share stories, adventures, lessons, laughs, and hopefuly, a whole-lotta-love!

I’m not sure where this first adventure together will end up, if I’ll ever get a full-time job, or learn to like putting away clean laundry. But this is my life, married life, as a newlywed wife.
