My Relationship Is Based On Love, It’s Not About Money

I had a dream last night that my fiancé called himself a loser as he was crying on my shoulder. My initial reaction was to comfort him and tell him he’s not while he wept. And, trust me, he’s not a loser. Since I met my fiancé, he hasn’t been able to find a job, therefore, he hasn’t been stable. But, honestly, that never bothered … Continue reading My Relationship Is Based On Love, It’s Not About Money

Why I’ll Love My Fiancé No Matter What Job He Has (Or Doesn’t Have)

“Unfortunately, we have to move back to Pennsylvania,” my fiancé confessed after a year of living in Tennessee. For me, this was upsetting news since we’d lived on our own for over a year.

There Was A Reason We Had To Come Back

“Remember the time we took Ollie to Barktoberfest and we dressed him like a lion?” I asked my fiancé. He laughed and nodded his head. It’s almost been 2 months.

Two months and I still feel the need to talk about it, memories come … Continue reading There Was A Reason We Had To Come Back

We’ve Been Through So Much And We’re Just Getting Started

When my fiancé and I met, we were in the same position – looking for jobs and living at home. We were the ones who commuted to and from college. We never got to experience living away from home, so we didn’t understand how it felt to have true independence. A few months went by and he obtained his first full-time job.

But, the reality is, it’s … Continue reading It’s Okay, It Just Wasn’t Our Time
