Behind The Scenes Of A Perfect Marriage

brandi and terrence 49ers

My marriage is perfect. I mean, it’s obvious, right? One glance at my social media accounts, and it’s clear that I think my husband is: (1) Fine, (2) Sweet, and (3) Brilliant. He takes such good care of Ayva and me, and I love being his wife. It’s kind of taboo to talk about how good your […]

The Unexpected Perks Of Being Married

The Unexpected Perks of Marriage

When I said “I Do” to Terrence nearly a year ago, it was one of the best days of my life. It’s like that for most people, though, right? We get married because we love each other, and we know that from that day forward, we’ll have a partner to go through life with. Those […]

No Longer A Newlywed – One Year Later

The Riley Family Wedding

I still can’t believe it sometimes. How did a single mom from Philadelphia meet a consummate bachelor from California and end up spending life happily ever after?

This weekend, Terrence and I took a little jaunt down to Sonoma for a quick rendezvous. We were engaged last year the eve before Valentine’s Day, so we were also celebrating an anniversary of sorts.

10 Things To Say To Your Husband Every Day

Words of Affirmation for Your Husband - Mama Knows It All

There’s a new trend among married folks that I agree with completely. Instead of the “ol’ ball and chain” stereotype that used to define matrimony, men and women are treating marriage like a gift (because it is), and their spouses like a prize (because they are). Nowadays, wives aren’t belittling their husbands for laughs. I […]

I Will Fight For My Marriage

I Will Fight For My Marriage

Four months before I walked down the aisle and married my best friend, I took my engagement ring off and gave it back to him. We had an argument, and it escalated from a very simple disagreement (it was seriously so small that I’m too embarrassed to even share it with you!), to me packing […]

5 Things Your Husband Does Not Want for Christmas

When it comes to holidays, the gifts that Husbands get often pale in comparison to the gifts that Wives get. I’m not complaining, I love being spoiled!
