June 14th, 2014


It’s hard to believe that 4 years ago today, I stood in front of all of my closest friends and family and said, “I do” to the man of my dreams. I thought I could never possibly love Roman more than I did in that moment, but I couldn’t have been more wrong! My heart has grown leaps and bounds for my guy by the day. A lot of people thought we were crazy (or pregnant LOL) for getting married at 20 & 21, but there was no doubt in my mind that I had found the person I was meant to be with and I was ready to start our journey. We’ve grown together, challenged each other, and pushed one another to be the best versions of ourselves. I thank my lucky stars every single day that I get to keep him forever!

If I had to go back and give myself one piece of advice on our wedding day, I would tell 20 year old me to slow down and soak in every minute! It’s easy to wish for bigger and better things when you’re living in a 900 square foot apartment, but we often look back at those days and miss the simplicity of life back then. I’m incredibly proud of how far we’ve come, but I will always cherish the journey it took to get here. So if there is anyone out there just getting started, treasure your humble beginnings, chances are you’ll miss them some day!

I couldn’t be more grateful to be doing life with my best friend. Our relationship isn’t perfect, but I wouldn’t change a thing about it. We have the sweetest little boy that absolutely adores his daddy, just bought our first house, and are working hard everyday to live a life we’re proud of. What more could you ask for?!

Cheers to 4 years Rome, I love you!



Hello internet!

This is Roman, Krychele’s husband, here to shine a light on her for our four year anniversary! Now, Krychele asked me to write something but didn’t really give me any guidelines. So, I am going to give you all four kick-ass facts about her and we’ll call it a day-

  1. Krychele is HORRIBLE at math, especially fractions. SHE LITERALLY CANT EVEN! I cannot tell you how many times we’ve been in the kitchen making something- usually from a box- and she’ll ask me “how do i make 3/4 of a cup!?” Fun fact- I spent about a week straight in college helping to tutor her in math. With an actual “shit ton” of luck, we got her through the course! That week wasn’t all bad thought, I got to spend A LOT of time with a pretty girl- totally worth it!
  2. Krychele can whip up a mean dessert! Most of the time when we go to family functions we get asked to bring dessert. In fact, its happened so many times that now she cant think of any new treats to make since she’s already done so many. Another fun fact- Krychele has had a deep, sick love for cupcakes since the day I met her. Hopefully, one day, she will blog about it for all of you lol.
  3.  Krychele LOVES to nap. Anytime. Anywhere. Now when we first started dating, I had no clue about her favorite activity- I would call her and tell her “I’m coming over”, but when i got to house there wouldn’t be an answer at the door and she wouldn’t pick up her phone. Eventually, i just learned to walk in and head down to the lovesac and sure enough she would be out. Fun fact- If you find Krychele asleep, you might catch her sleeping with her eyes open.  Now i love he hell out of her and all, but honestly sometimes it still freaks me out!
  4. Krychele is my better half. I couldn’t imagine going through life with anyone else. She rocks at being a full time mom and our son truly adores her.  On top of that she still finds time to throw together cool stuff like this and keeps things interesting! I simply love her!
