It Wouldn't be @pageandamber Without Amber

It's a morning like every other save now I'm married. Being married is exactly what I thought it would be. Taking showers together and having to convince my wife to have sex with me. (I'm pretty hairy) She insists that she likes me the way I am. What an awesome woman, and a good liar!

I've been wanting to be married since I was 16 and now that I am I'm encouraged to know that my thoughts on marriage have always been right: it's hard but worth it. And thanks to a lot of humility on both our parts our first month has been great.

Throughout our dating the past two years our desires have lined up quite nicely in only a fashion God is capable of bringing about. We are currently on a path to being debt free in a year and moving overseas. Being a full time missionary with Amber is going to be difficult. She's never been to a foreign country and I've spent a lot of time overseas. She's never had to squat over a outdoor toilet and I squat on the indoor toilet we have now.

Despite the potential hardship we face overseas I couldn't be happier to spend my life with Amber and her weird little quirks. For instance, she sleeps with the AC set to meat locker and puts extra covers on herself that when we wake up she says, "I was sweating last night." I look at her with the silent strange face that she's so accustomed to seeing and I smile and think #mywifeiscrazy. Then I remember that's what I love about her.

I don't know which country we'll end up living in, whether we'll be rescuing Korean babies in South Korea, or babies in the Sudan, but what I do know is that I'm glad to be doing it alongside the coolest, best dancing chick in the world...my wife. love. war.

"A loving doe, a graceful deer—may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be captivated by her love."
Proverbs 5:19 

Things to think about:
-Why is Obama adding to the discussion about Trayvon Martin? 
-Not buying things you don't need.
-Getting out of debt.
