HAPPILY MARRIED JUNE 2011
We met while working at the same hotel in Sedona, Arizona - I worked front desk, and he worked in the kitchen. If you ask him, he'll tell you that he saw me in the kitchen one day, and knew I was a person he wanted to get to know. I knew him as a VERY quiet person, and had never heard him speak until I had to drive him in the company van between properties. And even then, it was only "ok" and "yeah". Finally, one night we had an actual conversation, and had the opportunity to talk more a week or so later. After that, we were a couple.
I was completely naked for my proposal... yup, that's right! Not to worry, I was in a candle-lit bubble bath relaxing, and I was TOTALLY surprised! He'd gotten the ring from the jeweler, and not one to be able to hold on to things he knows I'll like (Christmas presents, birthday gifts.. these always show up early as well with him begging me to open them!) he decided the romantic mood was the perfect scenario! He said a bunch of wonderful things I can't hardly remember, and I kept saying something like "oh my gosh" until he had to ASK me to say yes! Which, of course, I did. My ring is gorgeous, and was purchased (and designed) at J. Staples Jewelery here in Louisville, KY.
We are getting married barefoot on the beach... the decision that finally made my groom-to-be excited about the actual wedding! On June 11, 2011, I will be marching down the sandy aisle with waves crashing on the shore, an acoustic guitarist playing in the background, right toward the man I love (and our handsome 2-year-old in a custom-made linen suit). Our wedding colors are browns and a light springy green. It will be casual elegance, with a beach flair. I cannot wait to really dig in and get the details set in stone!
