Hi, welcome and thanks so much for visiting. I’m Ms. Adams a twenty something former bride-to-be married to my Southern sweetheart Mr. Adams. We live in Old Town Alexandria, a beautiful historic town with deep roots in colonial history.
Originally, this blog was used to track our wedding planning journey and ultimately as an application for Weddingbee. While I didn’t end up getting picked for Weddingbee, I found that I loved blogging so much that I wanted to keep it up even after the wedding. While right now I’m slowly working my way through our wedding recaps, I hope that this blog will become a compilation of the things that make me happy (crafting, decorating, cooking, God, marriage, travelling, weddings). So on any given day, I could be talking about an emotional struggle or my favorite new recipe or my new house project or maybe even building something.
In terms of our relationship, Mr. Adams and I dated for about 2 years before we were married on May 29, 2011. He proposed Valentine’s Day of 2010 and then again a week later We are total opposites but great balances for one another. He’s a gregarious, social butterfly, who could talk an Eskimo into buying ice, while I’m a quiet, introverted, nerd, who enjoys writing, reading and observing. We love living life to the fullest and enjoy spending all our time together. We commute to work together, work a floor apart from one another, workout together, come home together, you get the picture. We are completely inseparable and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What’s with Mr. and Mrs. Adams? Well, we are obsessed with history, especially colonial history (that might be the understatement of the year). One of our favorite founding couples is the Adams. Their relationship is an inspiration and John Adams’ core values and morals were way beyond his time. We admire their relationship so much we used one of their love letters as a reading in our wedding ceremony.
Why blog? I felt like a lot of the blogs out there weren’t being honest about how difficult the whole engagement and wedding process can be. Not that I want to be a Debbie Downer, but this process isn’t all roses. Sometimes, it’s overwhelmingly difficult. I just wanted to let other brides-to-be out there know that someone else understood that this is hard. So while blogging about colors and wedding dresses has been really fun, I’m blogging to talk about the stuff that everyone’s afraid to talk about. I want to be completely authentic and real, even if it means that I’m angry or sad or upset. I hope our story can at least provide some comfort to other brides out there that are feeling ostracized or outcast.
