An Adventure to Remember

A year ago today, I caught a glimpse of how I had always envisioned my life unfolding, and my happiness knew no limits.

I wrote a special post that detailed the love story of two kids who became two adults who finally realized they were soul mates.

A year ago today, I realized that sometimes dreams do come true.

I had my first experience of being so shocked and overwhelmed that I was literally speechless and visibly shaking.

A year ago today, I got engaged.

A lot can happen in a year, and a lot did happen this past year. But today I’m every bit as happy as I was during the proposal a year ago, and I’m so excited that I’ll be married to my best friend in less than eight months.

I just wanted to take a moment to remember that wonderful, snowy, romantic, icy weekend in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada.

Thank you for humoring my sentimentality.

    You are going to love this……..I have had two bottles of ice wine in the refrigerator for one year, compliments of your trip to Canada, waiting on something to celebrate. Tonight I came down to get something to fix for dinner, and decided to check out the email, and low and behold here was your “Adventure to Remember.” So we toasted your engagement anniversary with our dinner. Did you feel your nose twitching a little bit? So Congratulations on one year! Love ya, Grandma

    1. That is awesome! Brian wants to know how you liked the wine! I cannot believe it has been a year and that we have only a few months until the wedding… it is getting very real and very exciting!
