Hey there! I'm Linda! I was born and raised in Maine, spent the last 6 years in Portland, and now call the Boston area my home!
Most days you can find me playing on the floor with my daughter, writing love letters to my husband, and reading with a cup of tea!
I am mostly known for being able to find all the things my husband has lost, making as much food as I can from scratch, my obsession with chips and salsa, and my mad organization skills.
I know that people were talking. I mean, who gets engaged after dating for only four months, and then gets married three months later? There MUST be some reason they HAVE to get married!
Steven and I did, and the only reason we had was because we knew with absolute certainty that we wanted to be together forever. Just because we made these decisions quickly doesn’t mean that they were made lightly.
Next month we celebrate six years of marriage. Six years that I’ve been his wife. It truly has been the greatest! I know that 50% of marriages end up in divorce, but we are beating that 50%.
I think marriage rocks!
My personal belief is that so many marriages end because people romanticize marriage. They think it’s supposed to be one way, and when it doesn’t meet their expectations they move on. I’m also not naive enough to think that this is the only reason that divorces happen. There are SO many factors and variables that are so unique to each couple.
Marriage isn’t easy.
It’s a choice you make EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
Gosh, there have been times where I haven’t liked Steven, and I’m sure the same goes for him. We’ve fought and we’ve argued.
But what gets us through it all is that we communicate like our marriage depends on it. Because it does.
We talk about everything.
We make a choice each day when we get up to treat each other with love and respect and honesty. To me, that’s the secret to a successful marriage. That’s how you have a marriage that brings you joy! I know that some people are probably thinking, “what does she know? she’s only been married for six years!” And that may be true. But for right now, this is something that I feel really strongly about!
As a wedding photographer I see so many celebrations of pure excitement and joy for what comes next. I also know that a lot of the people I have photographed have really healthy and realistic expectations of what comes next!
I love my husband more than I can express. He’s so much more to me than my best friend and soul mate. I adore being a wife, especially being Steven’s wife. I plan on being a “wifey for lifey,” for, well, ever!
I leave you with two things:
Thanks for reading, friends! I appreciate you!
