Names: Caitlin and Rob
Ages: (Almost) 25 and (Almost) 26
I live in: Wilton, Maine
Do you blog? (Where can we find you?) About what? I do blog over at http://tomakelovestay.blogspot.com/ and I write about clothes, tattoos, life, and whatever else I see and love.
What do YOU do? I am a software consultant. I travel to colleges and universities all over the country and teach staff, faculty and students how to use a campus management software that my company works with. On the side, I do a bit of semi-amateur-pro photography (weddings, family, engagement shoots, etc.). You can find my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/CaitlinAbramsPhotography.
What does HE/SHE do? My husband is an Army veteran who got out of the Army in April 2008 and is currently a junior in college studying Environmental Science.
How long have you been married? We’ve been married for around 9 months, together for a little over 8 years.
How did you meet?We went to high school together and met in 2002 through a mutual friend. We’ve been together consistently for the last 8 years through college, the Army, deployments, and study abroad – it’s been a pretty crazy road so far!
What do you argue about the most? We don’t have any serious arguments as we generally have similar beliefs on the big-ticket items (money, kids, religion, politics) but sometimes I get cranky in the winter and he gets cranky in the summer, so our fights will stem from miscommunication and general crankiness.
Do you have kids? If not, are you planning on them anytime soon? No kids yet, maybe within the next 5 years or so.
No kids? Dogs? Cats? They count. Names? We have a beautiful dog named Cypress who is the prettiest, loveliest, most amazing dog ever. She’s some sort of husky mix.
Who cooks the most? My husband does a lot of the cooking. I supervise and assist, but he does most of the grunt work.
Who cleans the most? Depends on the cleaning type. I sweep, vacuum and organize, my husband cleans the bathroom and kitchen like a madman.
Where do you see yourselves in five years? Still married of course We’ll probably leave Maine once Rob graduates next year because of the lack of jobs, but we have no idea where exactly we’ll end up. My guess is we’ll have kids and great jobs, though I’m hoping to be able to stay home once we have children.
If you could give an engaged couple any advice (assuming they asked for it), what would it be?
Make sure the person you’re marrying is your best friend. Don’t listen to anyone else’s opinions; as long as you’re happy everything will go just fine. This goes for your wedding and for life in general.
