meet the valdes’!

k. gabrielle.


I met my husband at 15 years old, during my sophomore year in high school. If you would have told me 10 years from then, that man who thought it was perfectly fine to wear orange plaid cargoes with a red and blue tie-dye shirt outside of the house, would be my husband, I’d probably call the police.


I’m Kendra Gabrielle Gilreath-Valdes, but go by K. Gabrielle. Created in 1994. I’m the rock for Austin Valdes and mom to a three year-old Maltese Mix and one year-old hedgehog. I graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications/ Public Relations.

The Married Millennial is a tell-it-like-it-is, no holding back blog that gives other engaged or married millennial’s the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to dating, relationships and marriage in our 20s. They say when you get married in your 20s, your marriage will almost always end in divorce. Let’s break that tradition. Let’s live our lives and love our husbands!

I hope you will realize through my posts and short stories, that I’m everything but the perfect, every-day wife. I am still learning how to care for myself, as well as for my husband. He has loved me when I couldn’t even love myself. I’m forever grateful for his support through the darkness. I thank him for truly being the light of my life.
