Well folks, 2013 is coming to a close. There were ups, there were downs, but for me there was one pretty significant highlight:
I GOT ENGAGED!
Not only did I get engaged, though, I got engaged to my high school sweetheart.
Yup, that's us. Fall 1994, I was 13 (a freshman) and he was 17 (a senior), and this was my first/our first real date. We dated for about 4 years until I went to college, then we parted ways (romantically speaking, that is). We remained friends, and over the years we would go out from time to time. We always kept in touch, but it never seemed to be the right time for us.
Fast forward to summer 2013. I had been in a relationship for about 8 years that had ended in December of 2011 and Erik had just become single again after about a year and a half. So, there we were, both single at the same time for the first time since the late '90s.
Well, as they say, the rest is history. We were engaged on November 30, and now we are joyously beginning to make plans for our wedding in the spring of 2015!
That's where you come in: I need help!
We are both wedding newbies (yes, that still happens these days) and we want to have a dream wedding. Unique, fun, memorable..and affordable. Over the next 31 days, I will be asking you to weigh in on everything from dress options to cake choices.
Please be gentle: it's my first time!
