Today we’d like to introduce you to Tia Davidson.
Tia, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Where do I start? How about the fact that I never saw this coming. I actually prayed that God would bless me with a man who could show me true love and loved me no matter what. I vowed to stop looking and live my life in hopes that whoever he had for me found me and never let me go. My husband, Travis, and I met on Twitter, and for the longest time, we were embarrassed to tell people that, but hey… the cat is out of the bag now!
After skyping for a year due to the long distance, Travis and I finally met for the first time on July 16, 2011! It was love at first sight! Two months passed and we made it official, September 2, 2011 (Labor Day Weekend). Throughout the long distance relationship, we spent time flying back and forth to see one another at least every other month for the weekend. One day Travis asked me, “where do you see yourself living?” I told him, “I wouldn’t mind moving to Texas, Atlanta, or North Carolina.” It was Travis’ last year of college by then, and he started applying to jobs in the places I said I would like to live.
In May 2012, Travis graduated and was offered a job opportunity in Mesquite, TX and asked me to move there with him. In July 2012, we moved to Mesquite, TX and later Dallas, TX which is where we live now. We both had a lot of growing and adjusting to do together as a couple. This was a new experience for us both, new city, no family and friends-just each other, new jobs, new responsibilities, and a lot of patience.
On May 16, 2015, Travis proposed and we both knew ultimately we were THE one for each other. Nobody but God brought us and is keeping us together. Five years later from the day we first met on July 16, 2016, Travis and I became Husband and Wife.
After being married for about 3 months in 2016 and feeling like my identity was being taken away, I soon realized that transitioning from an independent Miss to a Millennial Mrs. would not be an easy journey by myself and I created The Millennial Wives Club, a lifestyle and fashion blog dedicated to Millennial women who are dealing with major transitional life events, such as marriage, motherhood, career, new location, and a new identity.
I share my story and the story of other millennial women in hopes to inspire and bring reality of what it’s like being married today without the picture perfect perfection that we see on social media today.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The Millennial Wives Club has been a passion project of mine the past year, and it is growing faster than I could have imagined. One of my goals this year was to expand and become a nationwide community for millennial women to collaborate, connect, and build relationships with other like-minded women where we can support one another in not only our marriage, but our friendship, businesses, social life, and more.
Currently, The MWC is based out of Dallas, TX and we meet up with other women every month in small groups of 8-10 women and discuss real topics, try new activities around the city, and mingle with other millennials.
The challenge with this has been, ultimately it still feels like a one-woman show. I am the content creator, editor, website designer, event planner, organizer, social media manager, PR person, and more! So juggling the brand, a full-time job, a growing community, and my real life is a challenge but I am pushing through it.
Please tell us about The Millennial Wives Club.
The Millennial Wives Club is a community created to bring support to myself as well as other Millennial women who are dealing with major transitional life events, such as marriage, motherhood, career, new location, and a new identity. The goal and mission of The Millennial Wives Club is to figure out life together and to be supportive of wherever you are in life so that you know that you are not alone.
I do believe this community is a vision sent by God and serves to be my purpose in life. I would like to be most known for my transparency, humor, positivity, and authenticity on the blog and in real life. We currently are living in a quid pro quo world; this isn’t that. I created this community to be the home of transparency, genuine relationships, and women with a passion to help other women.
What sets us apart from others is the fact that we are a club of young wives new to marriage mixed with seasoned wives that we can learn from and singles who can learn from us. Time has changed since our parents days of marriage, and sometimes you just need to vent, sometimes you need a sanity check, sometimes you just need girl time with other women who can relate to you. We are ALL in this together!
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I honestly don’t think I would have done anything differently, because every decision I’ve made has led me in a positive direction. Sure I could say I wish that I started with a team, but that would have meant waiting on someone else with the possibility of none of this happening.
Sometimes you just have to DO IT, figure it out as you go, and trust that if you’re being led to do something that there is a purpose for it.
