Today is my second wedding anniversary and the second anniversary of the best day of my life.  Seriously, I love being married…the wedding day was just the start to this crazy, amazing, stressful, wouldn’t-change-it-for-the-world life I have.  It’s not easy, nor is it perfect, but it’s the best feeling to be loved by my good man.

A friend told me once that the four most important things to look for in a strong relationship are (in no particular order): similar views on money, complementary parenting techniques, good communication skills and, at the end of the day, physical attraction and the desire for intimacy. Because sometimes we just need to communicate without words!

If you can find those four foundational things in your marriage – I think you’re doing awesome.   But what do I know…marriage is such an unique experience for us all and I haven’t been married long enough to give out advice.  But those four things have always stayed with me and I’m lucky I found those supports for the foundation of my marriage.

Lindsay Recknell co-founded Wedding Recycle out of pure necessity…the fifteen centerpiece vases on the living room floor had got to go! But finding a targeted audience to sell them to was the tricky part – not just anyone wanted fifteen fish bowls for their home. Thus Wedding Recycle was born – a place to connect with other new newlyweds and recently engaged couples, sharing ideas, and décor, with each other. Lindsay has always been an entrepreneur, a multi-dimensional self-starter prone to acts of randomness and dynamic ventures in her life. In addition to consulting as a data analyst during her “day job”, Lindsay’s role at Wedding Recycle is everything – business development, content creation, media correspondent and community liaison. If you contact Wedding Recycle, it’s likely you’ll get a response from Lindsay first and from that moment, you’ll understand and experience the passion, dedication, joy and motivation she has for the Wedding Recycle community and the wedding industry itself.
