Taking that first step....

On May 15, 2009 it happened, the question that will change both of our lives forever. It is crazy how the words "will you marry me" can have such an impact on ones life. I always dreamed of that magical moment; when my prince charming would come along and sweep me off my feet and ask me "the question". But it seems that no matter how many times I would play the whole scenario in my head, it never really fully prepared me for the reality of it all.
As a young girl I would fantasize the perfect proposal; how, where and when I wanted him to propose. But when the real proposal happened all I could think about was that amazing individual who knelt in front of me, and how I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him.

Four months ago I never thought I would be at this stage in my life. I was always the girl who would criticise all the couples who would get married so young and so fast...but yet here I stand... a hypocrite, probably one of the biggest of all. Only dating someone for about six weeks and then getting married in three months by the age of twenty would give me plenty of reason to ridicule. So I asked myself, why? why would you go against what you preach? Then I look into his eyes and I know. Although six weeks hardly seems like enough time to get to know a person well enough to want to marry them... if you see each other everyday and spend every second possible with this person in that time period, you get to know a person VERY well.

The fairytale dream I always wanted seemed to slowly dissipate as I grew older. With each sad story of cheating, lying and deceit my hopes of finding my prince were crushed. My faith in the male race was wearing thin, I figured that "Mr. Right" really wasn't out there. I was wrong. Luckily I found him! My knight in shining armor, and I couldn't be any happier. I am so excited to start a whole new chapter with the man of my dreams. We know that it won't be easy..but then again when was life ever easy? The only difference is, now we can go through this journey of life together and enjoy the ride.
