From Girlfriend to Wife!

This is a TRUE, Authentic glimpse at young married living in 2015…with babies, written by one of my classmates.

Love it, Brittany!


Mr. and Mrs.

I’m from the south where they somewhat “breed” us to get a husband and what we should do to “keep him”, but I had no idea what it would really be like to become a wife.

I was taught that it was my responsibility to cook, clean, take care of the kids, etc. I’ve been aware of what my “wifely duties” would include for quite some time, I even thought it would be easy to do. Then, when we got married, real life hit me like a ton of bricks.

Now see, Miz RetroStank is so many different things (aren't we all?), but namely, she IS a Chistian, wife, mother, light, poetess, songwriter, actress, fashion show coordinator, scriptwriter, freethinker, artist, ATLien, and a weirdo with a love for culture and healing. She wants you to know that you can BE, DO, and HAVE anything and everything through Christ! She is native to the third coast, specifically the Southern kingdoms of Arkansas and Georgia. Sweet as pie, good as gold, and free as a bird, she is the only girl of three chill'un, and lawd, did that make for some imagination and shopaholic tendencies. Her father was an Army man and her mama is an infinitely enthusiastic and loving lady. In any case, exposure to different places, expectation of excellence, and a homeopathic childhood environment, majorly tilted her towards uniqueness; she was THAT girl who wore a dragon-print dress with a mandarin collar one day and a funky TLC-inspired look complete with ponytails and barrettes the next. So, by now, you're understanding that she is all about the spice of life. So sit back, buckle your seat-belt, and enjoy "the Funky ride all around the world" (in the words of Outkast).

Two Cents, anyone?
