Hello, lovely M Loves M readers! My name is Tieka and I run the blog Selective Potential. With last week’s Blogger hiccup, my guest post has been pushed back, so you’ll get two guest posts today! First, I just want to say how EXCITED I am for Mara and Matthew. It has been so amazing for me to read and watch their journey through this wedding and I can’t wait to continue to read more about their life together. For me, being married is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I’ve been married for almost four years (eeps! I’m getting old!) and it has been the best four years of my life. My husband’s name is Brett and I met him when he was a drummer in a punk rock band. Obviously I stalked all of his shows and finally convinced him to fall in love with and marry me. 😉
Brett and I live in a small beach town along the coast of Lake Michigan. We have two kitties – Sergeant Death and Ultra Mega. We also play in a punk band together called Circle Maybe! One of the best parts of our marriage is how we are still kids together. We’ll pick up for a weekend and drive spontaneously for seven hours to the arch in St. Louis. We’ll go up north and stuff our faces with fudge and ride bikes along Mackinac Island. We ride every carnival ride together, chase each other around the apartment with mini squirt guns and ride around on our scooters together constantly. He’s my best friend and I love being a kid with him… and can’t wait to someday raise kids with him!
I think the most important thing in a marriage is to be best friends and find someone you can have fun with. I can’t imagine not doing all of the crazy things we do together. Playing in bands, running a fashion blog, having full-time jobs… life can be crazy, but it’s so much more enjoyable when you can have fun together and be silly. You can read more about our adventures over at my blog! Congrats again to Mara and Matthew!! You’re both amazing!!
Welcome to M Loves M! My name is Mara and I created this lifestyle site in 2009 as a place to share my love of fashion, beauty, food and entertaining. I moved from Southern California to Idaho and love adventuring with my husband Matthew, our two children, and our dog Ginger. We're also pregnant with baby #3, due this autumn! I strive to create a site that’s relatable to women, while also being inspirational. I’m so glad you stopped by!
