I’m Not a Witch, I’m Your Wife.

I want to get married. That’s what I’ve decided. I mean, duh it would be freaking awesome to find someone that I loved that loved me back and with whom I wanted to spend the rest of my life, but I think I want the technical designation of marital union as well.

Let me explain. I don’t care what it’s called, necessarily. Spouse, mate, buddy-friend, partner in crime; the name doesn’t hold a candle to the level of importance of the actual relationship. I like the idea of being officially linked together though because that means we’re stuck together, no just up and peacing out because something gets hard or someone gets frustrated (or frustrating). In my little mind, the level of commitment that comes with marriage is where it’s at.

This is what’s been in my head as of late. Now that I’ve come to terms with the notion that I can’t weasel my way out of having a future and all. Not that it will happen any time soon, but somewhere down the line.

First I’d have to have some heavy-duty conversations with some people. Namely my family. Which scares the crap out of me. So it’ll be a while yet.

And now, it’s time for a picture. Assuming I can figure out how to post one. But I figure it’s high time I learned, so hopefully it works. These guys are straight-up my favorite couple ever. I know everyone loves Ellen, but her sweet wife is one of my all-time heroes.


  1. I love Ellen but I also love Portia and I think they are a gorgeous couple.

    As for the tough conversations. No being able to speak from personal experience, don't rush. Have them on your terms, in your own time. It's going to be hard no matter what but when you are prepared you will feel better about it.

    I want to get married someday too. In fact, this is quite apropos for my post next week. Apparently great minds think a like. ;)

    Take care of yourself Bailey, we are all rooting for each other here!

    1. Isn't she amazing? Have you read her book? It's basically the best ever. Unbearable Lightness.

      Yeah, I'm thinking I'm going to wait for now. I'm getting anxious to have it done and out of the way, but at the same time I'm pretty afraid to tell them. So it might be a while. How are things on that front with you? Still not so much with the things being taken well?

      I'll look forward to your next week's post then; I'm curious to hear your thoughts on things and such.
