Do Engagement Anniversaries really exist??? hahaha *shrug * In my life they do!!! =)
Exactly 1 year ago today~ Markel proposed =) It was the Saturday after Thanksgiving and well…I was BEYOND shocked. I was a zombie all day trying to process it and at night~ Markel threw the BIGGEST surprise party ever. I am so lucky to have found my lobster (Friends reference) and it’s been the most amazing 5.5 year journey~~~
I have the greatest friends in the entire world TOO!! they were all waiting for us at the bar that Markel and I met at with signs, flowers, balloons, and drinks in tow!
1 year ago today was the most magical and fun-filled day. I’ve never been so surprised in my whole life~ and I’m so thankful for Markel, my family, his family and all of our friends.
Man, this year V-day really snuck up on me. I’m usually prepared with plans but this year…nada. Work has been REALLY crazy, my the wedding planning…blah. So every spare moment I get I usually try to sleep or watch a show that I have in my crazy DVR cue.
Anyway, Valentine’s Day (for me) is a day of all pink, girlie everything, and all adorable things. Here is a fun picture collage (photodump really) of things I found online =) (mainly pinterest)
After a few months of research and brain storming…Markel and I have created and sent our Save the Dates! We had really grandiose plans of taking it at the beach, in the snow, or even doing a super glam shoot. In the end? We took a random picture on New Year’s Eve in a semi-intoxicated state. =P But how gorgeous did this photo turn out?? And the balloons, GENIUS right?? HAHA They were part of our room decorations that I “borrowed”.
Oh, and the BEST part of this pic below? It was completely edited (text and all) with my cell phone (Samsung Galaxy 3S). LOL
Markel and I have had such an amazing year and journey together. I can’t wait to venture into this new year, new life, and new marriage with my Best Friend!! ❤ I can’t believe it, but our wedding is in 108 days!! eeeeeep! xoxoxo
