A lot of things inspire me to want to keep my marriage healthy and happy. One of them is meeting other wives who are making it work every day, and loving it! I knew quite a few before I said “I do”, and since Man Wife and Dog Blog was born I’ve met so many more. They’re all so fabulous I want you to meet them too. This week, meet beauty blogger Ayren from Gloss Daily!
The Wife: Ayren, 30
The Man: John (aka John-John), 32
But You Can Call Them: The Cannadys
How She Snagged Him: “When he’d come to visit me at my college from his college two hours away, I’d (attempt to) cook a three course meal in my dorm room…on a George Foreman grill. He appreciated my resourcefulness.”
Married Since: 10.23.04
Place They Call Home: “A 2 bedroom apartment in Bethesda, MD with a washer and dryer (after living in NYC sans a washer and dryer for 7 years, it’s a big deal!)”
How She Pays the Bills: Freelance Beauty Writer/Blogger
How He Pays the Bills: HR Analyst
What Makes Her Man Hot: “His height (a perfect 6’2″), his love for his mama (you know what they say about a man who loves his mama!), and his skin (it’s an occupation hazard of mine…I’m into skin, and his just so happens to be nearly flawless).”
A Wife Highlight: “At least once a day we’ll say the exact same thing at the exact same time. It’s freaky, but I love it.”
A Wife Gripe: “When it’s quiet time—you know, when you’re about to fall asleep or you’re reading a book or working on the computer—and he busts out laughing or yelling really loud at something on the TV. I’m not sure why, but that really irks me.”
The 2-Year Plan: “When I’m finished with grad school, he wants to go back to get his MBA. We’re saving up for a house (with a washer and dryer, of course). Hopefully, we’ll have a little Cannady sometime within in the next couple of years. Oh, and we want to travel the world.”
Wifey Wisdom: “Embrace the quirks in your relationship—they’re the best part.”
