[music |Nat King Cole - L-O-V-E]

Name: Emilie

Location: Portland, OR

Wedding Date/Length of Relationship: Sept. 2, 2006/ 3 years +

SO's name: Ben

Anything you'd like to share?: I love my honey, and I'm so happy to finally be married to him (it seemed like the time leading up to the wedding took forever). We're obviously still pretty new to this whole marriage deal, so far its been great and I can't wait for our future together to unfold.

One of your favorite memories of your relationship: The day he proposed to me on the coast, in one of our favorite spots over looking the ocean. I said "I don't know what could make this day any better." and Ben leaned in and said "I think I do, will you be my wife?" Also our wedding day was pretty fabulous (pics to follow in post). Too many good memories...

Pictures under here!Collapse )

I look forward to participating in this community and talking about married life, the ups & downs, good and bad.

Hey guys!! [Oct. 10th, 2006|08:51 pm]
The Goods and Bads of Marriage

Welcome to everyone. I'm so glad you've joined!!

I'm kind of banner challenged:)

If any of you know how, and would please create a banner for our site so we can start promoting, that would be awesome. I made a couple, and you can tell i'm bannerchallenged:)

So, if we could get a few that would rock!! And then, of course, let's all promote away!! I've promoted in almost every other community I'm a member of, and I know we could all bring in at least a few more people. Let's get this community rockin!!

Any suggestions, or anything you think we should add, or whatever, I'm open to them. I want everyone to be at home here, and feel like they are a part of the community. You guys are all here from the start, so let's make this community what we all want it to be!!

Wedding Date/Length of Relationship: May 1, June 24 and June 25, 2006 (civil/Korean/Jewish), together 2.5+ years
SO's name: Steve
Anything you'd like to share?: Exercising together is a good way to stay close and healthy at the same time. It's a nightly activity for us-- and I say this even though I hate exercising. Doing it together makes it fun. (That was totally lame for me to say, but I couldn't think of anything else and we are going to the gym soon)
Your best memory of your relationship: My favorite memory of my husband comes from when we'd only been dating about 3 months. I had a puppy and was working full time. He had the summer off (professor). He called me at work because he'd gone to my house to let the puppy out because he didn't like that it was cooped up. It wasn't until he went to open the door that he realized he didn't yet have a key to my apartment. That pretty much sealed me being in love with him. Needless to say, he got a key that night. :)
