Welcome to Wow and Vow Days! My name is Carrie, and I am a marriage-loving, book-reading, cat-cuddling girl. After getting engaged, I went out wearing a bride tiara and sash one night with my bridesmaids. A women saw me and yelled across the street, “Remember there will be wow days and there will be vow days. Congratulations.” At the time I didn’t give the comment much thought; after all, I was marrying a wonderful man and we were going to live happily ever after just like in the Disney movies.
Then I got married, and my husband moved into my apartment with me and my three cats. We fought…a lot. He thought that since we were married he could stop wooing me; I thought I had to be the perfect wife with a clean house with dinner on the table. He left the toilet seat up, and I put the toilet paper on the wrong way. This was not the “happily ever after” I had pictured. It wasn’t until we actually started communicating with each other that we realized marriage is hard work and something that a couple must commit to together. Through prayer and communication, we have create strong marriage that can weather the good (wow days) and the bad (vow days).
I plan on showing you how to work through the vow days and how to create wow days for your marriage. I will also include date ideas complete with outfit suggestions, how-tos, diys, and much more. Our three cats will also make several appearances as they tend to make themselves known by laying on the keyboard as I type or sticking their heads in videos. My husband will also weigh in on the “Trae’s Two Cents” section of the blog!
Some random trivia about me is that I have an MA in English, so I love reading. (Book reviews might pop-up every now and then!) I love to travel; I have left parts of my heart in Italy and Vietnam. I am a huge Jimmy Buffett fan and I can fins to the left like a pro. I am also huge Disney and Pixar fan. Trae and I danced to “Married Life” from Up at our wedding. I also love to bake and tend to run around the kitchen quoting Julia Child. Most importantly, I never grew up.
