Why Time Alone is Key for Relationships (Especially for Introverts)

Oliver & I were sitting in this small park in Berkeley on our honeymoon, sharing a delicious lunch from this french take-out place around the corner when we started talking about how tired we were. It wasn’t exactly the exhausted energy that comes from having an adventurous day, it was more of a people tired. We had spent every waking moment together since we said “I Do,” and we started to notice how tired it was trying to entertain the other constantly. 

An OKay Life Update

September has been an easier month than August, at least on my end. August was a lot of transition. We spent the first couple of days on our honeymoon in San Francisco, then halfway through the month said goodbye to all of our friends in Chicago. Then it’s off to NYC where we immediately transition into this new life. I get asked to start doing some freelance work literally the day after we moved in, which of course starting a 9-5 after so much transition was A LOT for my tiny, emotional self. To top it all off, I started having my stomach issues. Needless to say, August (and the beginning of September) were really hard for us.

An OKay Life Update

If you haven’t already heard, here’s a small life update. On July 29, 2016, I married the love of my life. The really attractive guy in this photo? That’s my husband, Oliver Hickman. He’s pretty incredible and I’m super happy to be sharing the rest of my life with him.
