Welcome to our new little corner of the Internet. It’s a cozy newlyweds’ hangout where we hope to share our lives and our thoughts on marriage as we walk together through our first year. Hopefully it’s funny, interesting and good way to see how we grow– if not at least all of you who have been here before can laugh at the mistakes you remember making.
Everyone has told us the first year of marriage is great, or tough, or fun, or long, or short, and much more. We believe them. All of them. This blog is an invitation for you to join us and see exactly how much of it is true as we blog every day of the first year of our marriage.
Yep, you read that right. We’re going to post every day. We heard of another couple doing this, a blogger that Brian follows, and we thought it was a great idea. So, on this site we will document the full first year of our marriage.
We’re sure that most of our readers will be family and friends that see the blog mentioned at our wedding and decide to check in on us now and then. To those folks, thank you for the support and love, and let’s hope we can make this exciting for you. Of course, if we are lucky some of you may have no clue of who we are, and that will validate our writing. So for you, our wonderful, appreciated, and voyeuristic mystery guest here is an introduction.
Lindsey is a 6th grade English teacher near Austin. She’s an English major, a world traveler, avid reader, former missionary and music snob. She’s crafty (as in crafts, not as in sly) and loves hunting for the next, great vintage find. As a Longhorn alum she wasn’t sold on football, but as the future wife of a diehard OSU Cowboy she is learning to like it. 🙂
Brian is a Program Manager for one of the big boys in the IT world. He has been working hard for the man for the last 10 years since he graduated from Oklahoma State University. He loves his OSU Cowboys, good beer, an evening with a book on theology, and a video game now and then. He is feverishly working to convert his future wife to being a Cowboy fan; so far bribery with new orange clothes has been the most effective method.
The goal for our marriage is to show the glory of our Lord, and ultimately we want to see the same thing happen through this blog. Hopefully we can shed some light on marriage, sin, grace, and maybe some embarrassing and funny moments along the way. We trust the Lord with our marriage, and trust that He can use our meager talents and humble lives for His kingdom.
If you want to follow us through this year easily, there is an abundance of ways to do so. The best option is to subscribe our posts through our RSS feed using an RSS reader (don’t know what this is? Go here. If you are looking for a reader, we suggest using Google’s), You can also subscribe via email through a link on our front page, follow us on Twitter, or you can ‘like’ our Facebook page and see our updates from there. So really, you have no excuse, unless you just don’t like us. 😉
So, welcome, friend. Grab a cup of coffee and settle in to find out what lies ahead for you when you’re married… or, laugh at our mistakes as you remember making them too.
