Husbands and Collections

Alex and I have owned our home for two months now and he has just moved in.  He needed a little extra time to move out of his apartment of 11 years.  I’m so happy to finally have him here and start our real married life together.  There will be a lot to learn about maintaining a home, but we’re off to a good start.

During the move, Alex had a lot to purge and not purge.  Don’t be surprised when you see us on Hoarders.  Any of our friends would agree, we both like to keep everything.  Not only that, but Alex is a collector of comics and a music enthusiast.  He’s been collecting since he received his first Hulk comic when he was 5.  Notice the massive collection behind him.  That’s only one wall.  When I lived with Alex for 6 months in his bachelor pad, I woke up to the Hulk, Spider-Man, and a vast array of other Marvel characters.  It wasn’t every girl’s dream, but it was a constant reminder of the man I love.  Thankfully though, he has a man cave to hold all of his prized possessions so I can visit when I like.

    Do you have any good collection stories from a significant other or roommate, maybe yourself?

I’d love to hear about it!

About Lauren Lear

Virginian to Mainiac, I moved to Maine for a photo internship with Aurora Photos and stayed because I met the man I would marry after winking at him on My photo business, Lola Studios, is where I pursue my love of fantasy photography using makeup and props to create alternate realities for my clients. I started this blog a little over a year ago to share the wedding prep, diy, food, and family experiences that I had. To bring you up to speed, my husband Alex and I bought a home, got married, went on our honeymoon, hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas back to back (never again ;) ), I turned 30 (never again :( ), we went to London to celebrate our first married year, and we got a puppy, Walter! That’s about it! I hope you’ll join me to see what unfolds next. Enjoy!
