Anniversary

Three years ago today I was your typical college sorority girl who couldn’t believe that she met the man she was going to marry just a month and a half ago at a concert in Cincinnati. Three years ago today I remember exactly what I was doing when Chris and I had “the talk.” Three years ago today he asked me to be his girlfriend.

A year ago today I was sitting in my apartment unengaged and researching florists for the wedding I knew we would be having at some point in the fall of 2008. There was a knock at the door, a “trick-or-treater”. And then there was a blur of excitement, a ring on my finger, and a bottle of champagne being popped. A year ago today, Chris asked my Daddy for permission to marry me and crafted the perfect, surprise, proposal. A year ago today we became engaged.

And here I sit, looking back on those three years that have flown by. I think about how fate brought us together at that concert and how different, and more wonderful, my life has been since I shook his hand and introduced myself. I think about all the laughs and tears we have shared, places we have been, and memories we have made. I think about how he has always been there for me {and Mommy}, especially over the last few horribly difficult months. I think about how lucky I am. Happy three year anniversary, I love you Chris.

And to my readers, Happy Halloween! Today's pretty picture is one of my favorite aisles, ever. Very fall-ish and appropriate for Halloween, don't you think!? Picture found here.p.s. if you're new to my little blog you can read how we met & how he proposed by clicking on the links below.

3 years ago we were living in the same city, I got to see your ring the next day and give you a huge big ol hug! I wish I could do that now. I miss you!

So, they are a gorgeous couple..and love the idea of leaving 2 empty seats at each table..so they could share 1 part of the meal with different guests....
