So many amazing things happened this past year. Lets take a walk down memory lane (bee dee doo dee bee doop du dooo. *that is flashback music*)
At the end of the year 2010... i did get engaged to a wonderful man!
The early months of 2011 were filled with a million wedding decisions and changes. My wedding was at first going to look like this:
A room filled with red roses and black and white accents.... but half way through.. i changed it to this:
Beautiful fuchsia all over and dark plums scattered all around. Gerbera daisies all about. :)
I planned and planned and planned majority of the first half of 2011. In May i turned 24 years old... and also in May my wonderful then Fiance graduated from his ministry school and returned home. We met him at the airport.. signs in hands.
Nine months of long distance (4 of the months while we were engaged) prepared me for his job where he had to travel. hehe.
I remember seeing him walking up to us.. i remember being so nervous! As he approached us he looked soo different for some reason. My heart was pounding and my hands were sweating. "THIS is the man. THIS is the man i will be marrying", i thought. We hugged and my heart finally started to calm down. That was our little beginning to our happily ever after. :)
In June 2011 Martin and i got approved for our new little apartment. Looking at it then.. it looked small.. now that i live in it.. it feels even smaller! hehe. We also started learning and growing with pre-marital mentoring.. and Martin started working.
July and the beginning of August was filled with last minute details. Martin working a lot out of town. And paying all the bills for the wedding.
August 20th, 2011 i became a Mrs.
The next 4 months has been filled with cooking, cleaning, and learning to be a wife to my husband.
I am sooo excited for the new year 2012! :)
new beginnings, beautiful pasts, and love. -M
