To My Husband

The love. The journey. The friendship.

To My Husband

My Love, My Love, My Endless Love,

It’s been four years since we met and six months since we got married, and I can only say I love you more than I did yesterday. When we met, I had little idea how far we would go and only had a hope for the place we would end up, but here we are and I’ve enjoyed every step of the way. You truly are my best friend.

First, thank you for being yourself. I always wanted, and certainly got, “tall, dark and handsome.” But what I didn’t realize is that there would be so much more. You make me laugh every day. You make dinner when I’m slammed with homework. You take the time to drive me to and pick me up from work, simply to have more time with me. You encourage me to play the piano because you know how much I love it. You go grocery shopping with me. You tell me “thank you” for every little thing I do. You clean the bathroom and take out the garbage, without being asked. You’re honest in the situations you find yourself in. You drop everything and serve those who need your help.

I could go on and on, but I just want you to know that I notice and that I’m thankful. Every girl has an idea about what marriage is, but you blew my vision out of the water. You’ve made marriage way better than what it appeared to be everywhere else.

Second, I know we’ve had it pretty good so far. We’ve hardly argued at all, and even then it was little and blew over quickly. It made my love for you grow, knowing that we could get through the good and the bad. But just for future reference, thank you for being willing to talk, even though I know it’s hard sometimes. So far, our talking has kept us liking each other and, heaven knows, we don’t ever want that to stop.

Third, thank you for loving me despite my weaknesses. We aren’t perfect, but it’s the journey to perfection that I would rather take with you more than anyone else. You’re forgiving. I don’t feel judged when I make a mistake, you simply encourage me to be the best I can. You’ve been my partner and best friend in times of weakness, rather than my parents, and that has meant the world to me.

I’m glad last winter we realized that losing each other would be a lot harder than marrying each other. We were right! We have a long way to go, but I’ve never been happier. Thank you for being you, thank you for letting me be myself, and thank you for giving me eternity.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).
