Then and Now: September Project Marriage Challenge

I recently stumbled upon a new blog, Project Marriage.  I have a few people I follow on Twitter that contribute and I really like it.  Lets be real, marriage isn’t always easy.  I know this. I need to be a better wife.  I mean I am always striving to be better in general but lately it has snuck up on me and I am kinda bummin.  I am not using this post to go into that…it is a little more private than I wanna go but I wanted to let you know in case you are ever feeling the same thing.  Maybe I am a little silly for putting stock in a blog about marriage but, as I have said before, the interwebz has taught me the power of “me too”. There are posts about the good and bad times and how to always try harder.  For that, I thank them.

Each month there is a challenge and this month is Now and Then. Post a photo from the beginning and one from now.  So here we go:

Then(October 2004…this was 2 years in but I couldn’t find older):

Go Panthers...and Sox

Now(at the River on Labor Day):

The fashion choices are questionable, I know

Short story (that I will elaborate on more later), we met in college the first week.  We were in the same intro engineering class with his now cousin as our teacher. We bonded over making fun of someone for being a douche.  10 years later (holy shit I just realized it really is 10 years), we can’t say we have matured much :). He was so cool.  I mean he had a North Face backpack.  Us hill folk had never seen those glorious things.  He dressed great and smelled yummy. He had glasses and a confident-non-cocky attitude. He wasn’t an ubernerd (see engineering keyword above). I had to get me some of that.  Needless to say, I did.  We then spent almost all of college together…literally.  Same schedule, same apartment complex, same friends, same employer…and people told us marriage would make us “tired of each other”.  Pffffttt we see less of each other now with full time jobs (still at the same place but separate buildings). We still carpool together and occasionally have lunch together…and I am never tired of him…never.

    *points and laughs at you for being hill-folk*

    BTW, Scott refuses for me to ever apply to work at any company he works at. He somehow thinks I’d be in his office all day. Um, no. I’d be in front of the vending machines all day.

    Hey Brandy~ Just got your post from Bloggy Moms… nice to meet you. Have enjoyed reading your blog….some blogs are way easier to get into than others. 😉 I live in Boone, but my husband went to grad school in Chapel Hill. Love it here. I like this post….but I’m scared to compare our two photos! Yikes.
