Now Let's Communicate...

Do you find yourself displeased
at your friends because your 
friendship is completely

Oh. My. Gravy.

I only have one solid friend
that calls me to do something..
And I love her dearly.

But I am always the one to call,
always the one to text,
always the one to start the conversation--
in each one of my friendships.

And this has been happening 
way before my marriage...
so don't even try to pull that card on me.

I read in a savvy magazine article that if you want to 
keep your friendship,
you just need to get over it and keep trying.

I have also heard from a lot of people that
since I am married now..I need to let my friends go.

I kind of don't agree with that...
as long as I include my husband in my plans
and be certain that he is comfortable. Right? 

But sometimes I get exhausted and tired from trying.
It is a bit ridiculous to be straight.

Am I alone here in this opinion? 
Am I weird?
Or is this normal? 


  1. You are not alone here! I could have written this post too {word for word}!
    I found that my friendships with other girls are fading out :( and being replace by couple friendships, which I am really enjoying. Ryan and I had a really close friendship with a dating then engaged couple. I could be my self around Jenny and we would do stuff together just us two but then we would go on double dates too.
    I used to let it get to me and I always felt like something was wrong with me, but I am over that now.
    Sorry to be so long winded ;) Glad to know I am not the only one!

  4. Definitely not alone. I'm the same way, definitely always the one to make the attempt to hang out. it is exhausting after a time. But i'd rather keep trying then sit at home alone...

  5. This so happened to me before and after I got married. Its not fun and totally agree with you!!!!

  6. You two are darling!! I found your blog and I absolutely love it! I totally agree with all these! happy I found it! My husband and I went to BYU and then just recently moved to texas! xoxo
