If you weren’t already in the know from following us on Instagram, we’re now engaged! Evan proposed while we were in Washington, visiting family (kept it under 10 people). We’ll go into more detail on the proposal and everything else marriage-related in future posts. I would start a whole series on wedding planning and stuff, but with Covid going on, that probably won’t happen for another year at least. So, I’ll discuss the things that have already happened, like how we found my unique engagement ring.
It is literally impossible for two people to be exactly the same. So why should you expect your partner to be the same as you? You probably don’t, which is good. But you probably expect at least some similarities, otherwise you wouldn’t be in a relationship with them. Having shared visions and common ground are good, but your relationship can grow stronger if you work on embracing the differences in your relationship.
Motorcycles have been there since the very beginning of our relationship. They’re a consistent motif throughout our lives. We don’t really see a lot of biker couples in our age range, so thought we’d write a little bit about it.

But there are many different things you can do to give yourself more time to spend with your significant other.
Relationships on their own can be hard. Add in miles of distance between you and the going gets tougher. Our relationship went through a six month period of being a long distance relationship. In addition to the challenges of long distance on its own, we had the difficulties that come with military deployment. So, here’s our advice and things that helped us make it through long distance.
The introvert extrovert relationship is an interesting one. If you meet us in person, it will be blatantly obvious to you that we have vastly different personalities. Evan is extremely extroverted, while I am pretty dang introverted. Online it seems like the opposite because I do the writing and social media, but Evan avoids having his photos posted. In writing this, I ended up down the rabbit hole of scholarly research on introverts and extroverts. There’s so many studies on a range of topics, like “Extroverts tweet differently” and “Are introverts smarter than extroverts?” While there is so much information out there about introverts and extroverts, I’m just going to discuss the close interpersonal introvert extrovert relationship. But first, let’s distinguish the difference between extroverts and introverts. There’s also ambiverts, who are in the middle, but I’m not going to focus on them in this post. So, when you picture…
