lucky gal.

The 2 year anniversary of mine and B's engagement is coming up and it's got me thinking about how lucky I am ...

And also that I haven't shared our story. 

Not 100% that anyone will be interested but it's nice to relive all the special moments that have gotten us to where we are now! :) 

So here goes ... 

BOY MEETS GIRL ... 

To hear Bryan tell the story, he says the first time he laid eyes on me he told his best friend {and a mutual friend of ours} that he WOULD marry me one day. {what a romantic?!} 

Bryan and I spent the next 3 years knowing each other, occasionally hanging out, bumping into each other all over town {we both went to ECU}, but never REALLY getting to know each other. Then one day during our Junior year, it all clicked ... We went on our first date and y'all I knew from that VERY first date that HE WAS THE ONE

{soooo young}

Flashforward a year and a half ... Graduation was upon us and it was time to decide what we were going to do and WHERE we were going to go. We knew that it had to be with each other ... Neither of us are cut out for long distance {bless those of you who are}! I applied to 2 grad schools {ECU & The Citadel} and B applied to 2 jobs {in Greenville and in Charleston} ... Now let me say this NEITHER of us are good executive decision makers ... We decided that wherever we BOTH got 'accepted' that's where we'd go. 

{and inseparable}

Interestingly enough ... We BOTH got BOTH! I got into both schools and B got job offers for both companies! We decided that although we'd LOVED Greenville that we would be silly to not move to GORGEOUS Charleston, South Carolina! 

So we graduated and packed our bags {and lives!} to head to The Holy City! 

{our first NYE at the Charleston Aquarium}

So I hope I didn't bore y'all to death with the first part of our story ... If not, there's PLENTY more! Come on, we have an ENTIRE wedding to get through! :) 

Next up ... {an almost failed surprise} ENGAGEMENT! Now I won't leave y'all hanging TOO much ... Nothing TERRIBLE happened! But it is funny and SWEET! :)

And don't worry, I'll be posting our story every Tuesday! {or at least thru the reception!} 

Happy Tuesday Y'all!
