I think you all know how much I love this series, and I cannot CANNOT tell you how excited I am to share today's couple. I'd be willing to bet that you are all familiar with the lovely Naomi & Josh of The Rockstar Diaries and if you aren't then hop on over there! (After you read their responses, of course!) Anyways, Josh & Naomi (and their adorable pup, Kingsley) are the cutest and lead an incredibly sweet life that I love to read about. I was so excited to receive an email from Naomi saying she'd participate, I've been drooling over some of the lovely headbands in the love, Taza shop but unfortunately they tend to sell out before I can snag one.

I am 23 years old and Josh is 27.

We are celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary this summer!

How did you get engaged?
Josh proposed to me inside a little blanket fort we build in my old apartment in New York City.
Tell us about your wedding day (not necessarily elements but feelings too):
It was a sunny summer day in NYC. We both cried during our sealing... and I think we giggled a little too. Best day of our lives so far (well, I can't speak for Josh but I have a feeling...)
I wish I could, but I'm not so great with words. It's definitely something magical that encompasses trust, loyalty, understanding, patience, caring unconditionally for and always being there for that special someone.

What is the toughest part of being in a committed relationship?
Compromising. Knowing when you're wrong and when to say sorry (I'm still working hard at this! Ugh.)
What is the best part?
Waking up next to him every single morning and thinking "this is still for real!"
What is the best day you and Josh have had together?
I can't really pin point one. The days where we go out and explore our city together are always so much fun. We like adventures. We're also just as happy and content being home bodies and ordering in and talking together or watching a movie. We aren't picky.
What makes you different from other couples?
Hmmmm, We have the cutest english bulldog puppy in the entire world? Haha, just kidding. But no really...
What is your favorite thing to do together?
I think we both just really love being together and talking. Our communication has really improved over the years which I"m thankful for. We love just sitting at home and talking without cell phones or computers or other distractions around. It has definitely strengthened our relationship and added a whole new level of trust and safety.
Kingsley, the cutest english bulldog puppy--and second cutest puppy-behind Edie of course :)
Do you have a song?
We do, but it's a secret! ;)
What is the most essential element of making it?
In my opinion, putting your partner and marriage first but always staying true to yourself.
What are your hopes for the future?
We're excited to have a family together someday.
Anything else the world needs to know about love?
Never stop believing in love.
A HUGE thanks to Naomi & Josh for participating in this series!
