I thought this might be a nice way to keep our family and friends updated on our busy lives!
Scott and I don't do anything slowly, apparently. We've waited our whole lives for each other, and now we don't want to waste any more time!
We met in 2007. Sometime during Thanksgiving weekend, we had our first date at Fiddler's Elbow. He was wearing a dark orange shirt, and I thought it looked nice. I'm not sure what his first impression was of me, but I guess it was good enough to ask for a second date! We dated slowly through the holidays, not making any sort of commitment, seeing each other maybe once a week. I knew he liked me, but I was nervous. I think it wasn't until March, before the Matchbox Twenty concert, that I finally confessed that I was falling for him.
After that, our relationship was a whirlwind. It felt like the most natural thing in the world to start looking at rings and planning a wedding. Scott officially proposed to me while we were in Oregon in July. A fairytale proposal, on the beach at sunset. I felt like the luckiest woman in the world. I knew that everything I had been through in the past led me to this moment, this gift.
So, the whirlwind continues. Next thing I knew, we were putting our condos on the market, meeting his parents, booking wedding vendors, taking engagement pictures, and hitting every garage sale and thrift shop in town for candle holders and vases.
The wedding is April 19, 2009. Just 3 months away now. It will be a small ceremony with just close family and friends. I get emotional just thinking of our special day. I am grateful for every moment that we share.
