Cheyenne Talks Marriage

The first few months were fun and refreshing. It was nice to finally be able to do life together day in and day out and not have to worry about anything. We didn’t have to drive back home at the end of the night or anything like that! It was just refreshing to be able to spend so much time with your best friend despite what people may think or say!
