Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by!

My name is Emily Alix and I am 23 years old. I love life and I love my Duke. I am usually pretty quiet. I have a Welsh Corgi, Breena, and a sweet Arabian horse named Cory. I was recently voted "most positive person" at my workplace.

In my free time I ride and show horses, shop for vintage goodies, and try to do everything that sounds awesome.

I am a veterinary assistant and have been for 4 years. I still do not know what I want to do as my "real" career, and I have decided that it's okay. Hey, maybe I'll never know!

{About Duke}

Duke is super amazing. He is loud. He is goofy. He is bold. From what I hear from his friends, he is one heck of a Marine. I believe it with everything that I have. He is absolutely amazing.

He joined the Marine Corps in 2008 and is currently on his second deployment. He is 24 years old.

{About Us}

We are both from North Carolina and went to school together. We had the worst first date ever. We were young. Six months later, we started officially dating. I was in the ninth grade, he was in tenth. The rest is history. We got married on August 6, 2011.

This was then...8 years ago....

This is now.......

We're not perfect by any means, but we are most definitely perfect for each other. We've had good times, and we've had really rough times. But, we've definitely come a long way and every second of our time together has been worth it. :)
