As my second wedding anniversary approached my head was flooded with thoughts. I knew I wanted to write something, but wasn’t set on a direction. I could easily write something incredibly mushy or a monologue of sarcasm, woven with humor. However, going solely in either direction didn’t settle right for me. Then, I thought about … Continue reading What Marriage Is
I fear how backwoods Okie I am about to sound with the content of this post, but just roll with me here for a bit. Do you ever have one of those weeks? You know, those weeks where you have an impossible to achieve to-do list ahead of you, the house never seems to stay … Continue reading My Husband’s Truck
A few of you just snorted at the title, I could feel it... futuristically feel it, that is. 'Two months little girl? Try 25 years.' Don't worry my marriage veterans, I'm not here to tell you I have this whole "till death do us part" thing figured out, I'm here to tell you what I've … Continue reading What I Learned My First Two Months of Marriage

My Someone was in Middle-of-Corn, Kansas, the weather was absolutely gorgeous, I had only filled the house with smoke once with Easter-prep cooking (as opposed to twice the night before.) — Basically the complete package of a perfect spring day. My Someone and I were immersed in some really … Continue reading Operation Ice Cream
I've been a little vocal about my thoughts on public displays of affection, and love sonnets in the form of blog posts... Okay who's kidding I've been REALLY vocal about it. As I've mentioned throughout several posts, the good Lord has a way of humbling me when I need it most. In this lesson of … Continue reading Mutual Weirdness
Okay, slight break from my impending vegan adventure. I have a story to share. I recently broke the news that I have a "someone," for those of you who hadn't figured it out, or may be slightly confused, "My Someone" is Yoda's brother. I met My Someone for the first time on Sept. 29 2012, … Continue reading Mind Blown
September 11, 1982, in the First United Methodist Church of Okmulgee, Oklahoma, 19 year old Michele Darby married 23 year old Denny Beard. In my world, these two go by Mom and Dad. Whatever brought together my reserved, disciplined, beautiful mother with my outgoing, wild, cowboy father is beyond me, but God has the greater … Continue reading 30 years of faith, love & committment.
Ag Nerds... I'm sure you've seen them. They are people who's eyes light up when USDA releases new crop reports, those who can talk in vivid detail about the new iPhone app they just downloaded that brings EPD (Expected Progeny Differences) results right to them, or those who have ever posted or framed pictures involving … Continue reading An Ag Nerd’s view on dating, marriage, & babies.
