Right now, as you read this post, I am currently getting married!  My best friend, Jacob Rogers, and I are promising to spend the rest of our lives together.  When we make this promise, we don't take it lightly.  We are committing to each other that we will choose to love the other person every day because love is a choice, not just a feeling.

I.  Am.  So.  Excited.

I know it's going to be difficult.  I know there are times when I'm really going to want to do my own thing, to say something hurtful, to respond out of anger or hurt.  I pray and hope that I will respond with grace and be the loving and respectful wife that I want to be, to learn to cherish Jacob as he deserves to be cherished.

Life will have difficult times, that's just how it goes, but Jacob and I will stick together, and that's all there is to it.  We're in for the long haul with this marriage!

Obviously, there will be a bit of a pause on posts for the next couple weeks while we get our life stuff together and get into a routine.  However, hopefully toward the end of this month or early June I will have a surprise for you guys!

I'll post again in a bit!

Meanwhile, check out these fabulous 1940s wedding photos!


  1. Congratulations! Just remember, always say I love you and never go to bed angry. We live by these rules. We also have a rule, when the Q of Hearts is out, we can speak frankly with no yelling etc, for our super serious discussions. May God bless you both!

  2. Oh, dear Lady!! Congratulations to you and your husband, I wish you both happiness and loving life together.

  3. Congratulations and cheers to a wonderful marriage! So exciting for you!

  4. Congratulations! May this be the beginning of a beautiful, exciting chapter of your life!

  5. Huge and unending congratulations!!! From the bottom of my heart, I wish you both the happiest of marriages and a lifetime of wedded bliss!

    Marriage isn't, as you wisely brought up, always the easiest thing in the world, but when you're experiencing it with someone you love, respective, cherish, admire and are elated to be with (and who feels the same way about you), it is more than worth even the toughest days (which I hope you two have exceedingly few of in your life together).

  7. Congratulations to you and Jacob!! I wish you both the very best! :)
