How It Got Started

We believe you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s crazy world; your personality, your sense of humor, and most importantly, your heart. All of these elements brought us to start B&M Survive LDR!.


About Us

We are two individuals who fell in love and now are in a long distance relationship with 859 miles between us. Bryanna currently lives in Minnesota and Marcus lives in Tennessee. We created this blog to share our experiences, answer questions about LDR and to offer advice for those who are in LDR or thinking about one. Our blog is meant to be open, honest, and candid about what we have been through, are going through, and what we expect for the future. Our primary goals is to give a glimpse into the life of our long distance relationship and to help others through our experiences. We will bring our whole selves into this blog, the good, the bad, and the weird, so much weird.

P.S. We both love the shows New Girl and Friends so be prepared for some random quotes!
