One Year Ago...

Friday, January 14, 2011

my life was forever changed. Jeff and I were wandering the streets of Charleston, South Carolina, and little did I know that this sneaky boyfriend of mine had been plotting for months with our families and my best friend on a little engagement adventure...







Right where it all happened!
We have come so far these past 365 days--we've almost finished planning a wedding, bought our first home, relaxed at the beach, went on numerous weekend trips to spend time with friends, and enjoyed every moment we have together. Life is good and God has blessed us beyond measure.

Jeff, I thank you for putting up with my through my crazy mood swings--and yes, Lord knows I have had them lately due to unending stress--but most of all, I thank you for being a constant in my life... someone I get to wake up to and start my day off on the right side of the bed, and someone that is there for me when I need a big hug after a hard day's night. I love you so very much and am so thankful that you chose to spend your life with me... ;)

I know, enough emotional love, right?? Friday is here and it's almost weekend time... with can you believe it--NOTHING on our agenda, except for a few errands here and there as Jeff prepares for his Costa Rica trip! We're going to have a fun little date night tomorrow, head to the bank for mutual funds creation (ugh oh), hopefully venture to the movies so I can finally see Black Swan, head to church Sunday morning, and spend a few hours at the gym in preparation for my first dress fitting next week...all in all, a relaxing weekend is in store and I am so excited the snow is finally over with and we'll be in the 40s--I know, that sounds almost like spring to me!

And P.S. a very special HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my friend Megan Hurt... love you darling and welcome to the 27 club!! I'm going old school with this photo all the way back to 2007 in Seaside--love it!
