Am I doing this right? Navigating the first year of marriage.

I’m married.

I’m happy.

And I’m leaning on faith to figure this out.

I’ve toyed around with the idea of a blog but since everyone with a smartphone is now also a writer I, more-often-than-not, came to the conclusion: Why add to the cyberspace clutter?

However, I’ve now had not one, not two, but three writing mentors tell me blogging is a necessity if you have something to say…a story to tell.

So here we go.

I am a Jesus loving feminist with a passion for seeing the world and carbs. I cuss like someone who’s spent way too much time in a  newsroom (sorry mom) and I’m constantly battling my love of pretty things with the reality that material trappings don’t really matter.

I am flawed – but I am trying.

I am an award winning journalist turned PR pro who now freelances travel and food stories while helping brands shape their stories. I am the oldest child from arguably the world’s best and loudest family and am married to the most loving, supportive man.  Truly. Take every cheesy, cliched, gag-me-with-a-spoon love phrase out there – he embodies it.

This will be an unfiltered look into the first 365 days of this fresh, new chapter.  It will not always be witty, but it will always be honest.

It’s admittedly a bit intimidating knowing anyone bored and browsing could stumble upon my documentation of this journey, so I’m asking for feedback, support, and grace as I try and figure this all out.

Here’s hoping support outweighs any snark.
