Nowadays, society loves to tell people what they're too young for. 
Too young to do this. Too young to do that. Too young to get married. Too young to be parents.
Most people view being young as going hand in hand with not being mature. 

While that might be true in some cases, a lot of times it is not. In my case, it is not.

What people don't understand is that maturity is developed through life experience, not by age. What we go through shapes how we view things and our mind set. While we tend to gain more life experience as we age, sometimes it doesn't quite work like that. 

I married Ryan, my high school sweetheart, in July 2014 at the age of 19. And yes, I know that's young. I've gotten the surprised "Wow you're married?", "How old are you?", "You're so young!" comments countless times.

But just because my husband and I are in a young marriage, does not mean that we are doomed to fail. It doesn't mean that we can't establish a loving, mature relationship that will hold strong and last until we are gray haired and weathered. 

Sure, we have certain challenges that older couples might not have. But, I also feel like we have certain advantages in our marriage that older couples don't. Looking back over the (almost) two years I've been married, I am so grateful that I didn't wait to get married until the age that society deems "appropriate," and I wanted to write this post to tell you a few reasons why.


Hi everyone! I don't know about you guys, but I LOVE perfume and especially love getting to try out new scents. Going to a fragrance store or stand at the mall can be fun, but sometimes you need to try out a scent more than once in order to know if you truly like it. 

That's where Luxury Scent Box comes in! Luxury Scent Box is a fantastic monthly designer fragrance subscription box that provides you with a month supply of the scent of your choice in a travel size atomizer. 

It's a really unique and cool subscription service that I was lucky enough to be asked to try out and review by the lovely people at Luxury Scent Box. Even though I was sent this box complimentary, all opinions on it are my own.  

Without further ado, let's get into my review of this subscription box!
