When we asked couples what their favorite thing about marriage is, the overwhelming response was something along the lines of “Doing life with my best friend.” It doesn’t get much better than that, y’all! Our dear friend Erin of Lucky Luxe elaborated on this point when she shared her personal favorite thing about marriage, and we love the way her answer gave us a little peek into the life that she and Ben share.

Oh man! So many things! Just belonging to Ben and sharing his last name makes my heart feel fluttery. How many people marry the biggest crush they ever had? I never forget that. Actually, the way we share everything, come to think of it. We share our work (he helps me at Lucky Luxe, I help him with youth ministry) and we share every meal every day. We’re rarely apart from one another since we both work within a two-block radius of home. On Saturdays, we always have burgers and cherry Sprites for lunch at the old Phillips Drive-In downtown. We collect antique cars and take my 1971 VW Beetle convertible, his 1962 Chevy pickup, and 1964 Pontiac Catalina (which belonged to my grandfather, then my daddy, now Ben) to car shows. Sharing our families, our home, our interests, our cereal, our books and music, and never having to deal with life on my own–that’s what I love about being married.
