Favorite thing about being married? I love feeling like we’re a real family, calling him my husband, and planning our future together.

@hisgoosiegirl:  Haha, actually it was the other way around!  We were in a long distance relationship, and I went into surgery in Austin. He was so upset that he wasn’t able to be there for my surgery, that when I woke up, the nurse was like, “Some guy has called about 10 times in the last 2 hours wanting to know if you’re okay. I sure hope he’s your boyfriend!” Annnnnd that’s how I knew.
