Ashley I and Jared Make Bachelor Nation Believe In Love Again

Ashley and Jared fill us with hope.


The Bachelor franchise is notorious for pairing people together for a short, 3 month relationship, but not for pairing people together for the long haul.

There are the famous, OTP couples like Shawn and Kaitlyn; Jojo and Jordan; Trisha and Ryan; Jade and Tanner; Carly and Evan; Sean and Catherine.

We are now adding Ashley I and Jared to that list of beautiful bachelor couples.

Ashley and Jared make Bachelor Nation believe in love again because their love story is the realest we've seen in a while.

They met on Bachelor in Paradise and afterwards became best friends. They both dated other people and Jared eventually realized that he was in love with Ashley the way she was with him when they first met.

There love story resembles real life. Girl likes guy, guy friend zones girl, they become best friends, and then they fall in love. Fans of their love story can see their interview about their road to falling in love. In their interview we learn that again, much like real life, Jared would play games and wasn't ready for the real deal with Ashley.

I think we can all learn something from Ashley and Jared.

We can all take a page out of Ashley's book: don't wait to be out of the friend zone, keep living your life. We can also commend Ashley for not playing Jared's game and knowing what she wants.

From Jared we learn to have the courage to go after the person we love, even when we were in denial about loving them the entire time. Today, it's so rare to find someone who isn't playing a game or has the courage to be vulnerable enough to put their feelings out there.

In the grand scheme, even though it took them 3 years to get together, God has a plan and love works in mysterious ways.

Ashely and Jared are the couple that Bachelor Nation needed after Arie and Becca. Arie proved that you should know what you want before putting a ring on it. That should be common knowledge, but obviously wasn't to him.

Ashley and Jared fill us with hope.

Whether you are on the fence about someone, playing a game, completely in love, or dissatisfied, look to Ashley and Jared to give you hope or reaffirm you in the relationship you want or already have. You might have already found who you've been looking for.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
