We recently started The NewlywEdwards blog in November 2016, soon after tying the knot, to share our story with other couples in real time. Our goal is to inspire other new couples to grow with us and offer new perspectives to those who have been married for ages. Our blog is not a perfect guide to marriage, but rather the journeys, discoveries, and struggles of being newly weds in modern day.

Who is behind NewlywEdwards?
We are Matthew and Jacklyn Edwards, and we recently married on October 8th 2016. We dated a little over 3 years before saying I do, and just purchased our first house 6 months prior (Whew, what an exhausting year).
We have two of the worlds sweetest fur-babies, Ridley and Rosie, which we both treat like our actual children. I am sure all you pet parents out there can relate!
We both work full time jobs and love spending the rest of our time together. Gag! I know 😉
We spend our time together relaxing, thrift shopping, finishing DIY house projects, and hanging with our friends and family. We LOVE trying new experiences!
I am sure you are aware that as Newly Weds, we live on a tight budget and do a lot of innovating to get by. I hope to show you some of our ideas!
We may be jumping the gun a little when we say we absolutely love being married. I mean, we don’t have very much experience yet, do we? It wasn’t easy getting this far, but that is why were here- to tell you our story from the beginning, and maybe you might find some inspiration along the way.
