Here Come the Brides! How We Knew & What We Do
This is the second post in the “Here Come the Brides!” series, following my adventures with Casey to the aisle. If you missed it, the story of how we met is here.
Today’s post is about how we knew this relationships was The One and what we love to do together when we’re not busy living life with our beautiful family.
How we knew this relationship was The One
We are each other’s best: Friend, lover, partner, spiritual mate, support.
We have disagreements and arguments, especially during stressful times, but we have committed to fighting alongside—not against—each other for our relationship in those moments. And that has been tested and proved through some incredibly difficult times, including the finalization of my divorce, her coming out to her parents, and my loss of employment.
But it’s not just those moments of getting through hard spots that assure us this is different from any of our previous relationships; it’s the everyday moments. When we are together, we feel a peace and a wholeness that never existed before for either of us.
How we enjoy spending time together
We just love to hang out together. We consider each other our best possible company.
We love to stroll outside, especially at the beach. We have lots of fun antique browsing, particularly when we’re picking up cute candlesticks for our reception. (Think, vintage romance!)
We’re equally as happy at a wine bar or a dive bar. We love to take our time eating at restaurants, savoring every course and the time with each other.
We have a few favorite TV shows, which we will watch whole seasons of cuddled on the couch. Some our best go-to’s have been The L Word, Downton Abbey, True Blood, Boardwalk Empire, and Transparent. (We <3 u, Netflix and Amazon Prime.)
We always have a great time at music shows—some favorites have been The Avett Brothers, Tegan and Sara, and the whole punk Fest weekend in Gainesville. Our dream concert would be Patsy Cline (sweet dreams, amirite?). And we are so psyched that our favorite local band, The Ones To Blame, will be playing for our wedding and reception!
