“I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.” - Anias Nin
We’re an interracial couple with almost a decade of an age difference and hyphenated last names. Yeah, we’re not your typical couple. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
We've been married since June 2011. The closest things we have to children are our iPhones. We love watching Hell's Kitchen, exploring Los Angeles, and engaging in great conversation.
My husband is my love story. To us, being married means living out our vows one day at a time. Marriage has been immensely challenging and unspeakably rewarding all at the same time. Our marriage isn't easy, but it sure is beautiful.

What our marriage looks like:
"[Mutual submission] means no one gets to be “right” just because they happen to have a certain anatomy or be in a particular role. As a team we have to figure out the best solutions instead of submitting to someone’s authority “just because they’re the head.” People say all the time “Well what happens when you disagree? How do you come to a decision?” We submit to each other situationally & sometimes we just wait to see what God reveals instead of demanding ourselves to decide in a given moment."Kathy Escobar
