How you and me became we...

Oh how time flies when you're having fun! Today marks 1 year since Nathan asked me to officially be his girlfriend. So many amazing things have happened in that year...including him moving closer to me...and him asking me to be his wife. I honestly don't know what I'd do without him. He is one of the most honest, kind, loving men I have ever met in my life, and I can honestly say he is my soul mate.

If you remember way back I talked about how I "met" Nathan...I send him this slightly ballsy text message...and little did I know the night I sent that message that a couple years later I'd be marrying that man! He and I spent the better part of a year as friends. We would go on dates every now and then, and we would talk most everyday, but he wasn't ready for a relationship. I dated here and there during those months, but my heart knew what I wanted...and I couldn't get my mind off of him. You know that quote..."If you want to know where your heart is, look where your mind goes when it wanders"...that was my life! I was stuck on him, and I didn't even know why. He and I are complete opposites, he is the hardcore outdoors man, and I'm the girl who doesn't miss a manicure appointment. In the past year I've spent more time on the back of a bass boat than I have anywhere, and I honestly wouldn't change a thing.


I know they say relationships take work, and nothing comes easy, but with him it's never been easier. It all seems like it is going by so fast, but when you know you know. He and I are getting married on April 21, 2012...2 years and 3 days from the first text message I sent him, that started it all...I can't wait to spend forever with him. Love ya babe!

Love your engagement pictures! Happy 1 year. You two are perfect for each other. It's amazing how different people can be yet so perfect for each other. I don't think I have ever seen Nathan without a fishing pole in his hand. So excited you have a date set now!
