Oh How I've Missed This

I can't believe how long it has been since I've been on here and how much my life has changed in that time. I still love reading other people's blogs and I finally feel like I can get back into blogging about my own little corner of life. It was a great outlet for me and the connection I felt to others bloggers was something special. So here I am! I'm back!

Where to start...?

In June 2011 I got engaged!
It was so beautiful. Dave put so much thought and planning into it. He made it such a magical and unforgettable day. We took a weekend trip to Santa Barbara, CA and I could tell something was up. He was acting weird and kept insisting that we be on time. He was driving and wouldn't tell me where exactly we were heading. As we cruised up the coast I saw so many amazing estates overlooking the ocean. Suddenly we pull into the entrance of one of the gorgeous mansions. I really knew something special was going on at that point. We started walking up through the entrance and there are some stables and horses. "Surprise! We are going horseback riding on the beach!" he says. Ok so that was the big surprise- so I started to relax about the proposal. We had an amazing time and saw dolphins swimming in the ocean. Half way through the trip we get off to stretch our legs and Dave starts walking down the beach. Before I knew it he was down on one knee with a beautiful diamond ring in his hands. I was so happy, I cried. I knew this was the man I wanted to share my life with and I felt like the luckiest girl in the world. We stayed in an amazing bed and breakfast in Santa Barbara for the weekend and I felt like I was living a fairy tale come true. 
And so begins the adventure of a lifetime. We are in it together for the rest of our lives! Ours is not a conventional love story as you will see but it works for us. Our life together is not always easy but I can't imagine anyone else I would want to share it with. He is my best friend and my hearts desire. There is much more to catch up on but those are stories for another day.
