About Us: Holly + Josh, Married 9 Years.

17 August 2012

The Davester and I have the seven year itch. That’s right. SEVEN years of wedded bliss. {Total lie, marriage is hard work, yo.} While we’re celebrating our anniversary this week, I’ve asked some of my favorite bloggers and their husbands to share some words on marriage.

Holly blogs at Artist, Mother, Teacher and Curvy Girl Guide.  She is married to Josh, a musician and they have two beyond gorgeous boys.  {Seriously Holly, your boys have the bluest, prettiest eyes ever.}  Holly is creative and funny, but her posts on motherhood are what keep me coming back time and again.  I love when you can just feel how much someone loves their kids through their writing and with Holly, it comes through loud and clear.


How many years have you been a couple & who liked whom first?

12 years. Josh and I had been friends for several years before we started dating. I definitely made the "first move" to change the status of our relationship to something more than friends.

What has being married taught you?

Patience. Compromise. Acceptance. Fierce comradeship for the ones you love.

What is the most fun thing the two of you have ever done together?

All inclusive honeymoon vacation to Jamaica.

How do you resolve issues?

Carefully. We try to respect the fact that we won't always share the same opinion but that doesn't devalue either.

Do you ever go to bed angry?

Yes. But we don't usually wake up angry.

What is the secret to a happy marriage?

Respect. Friendship. Work—because it isn't always easy regardless of how hard you love each other.
