So a year ago October 20th, Dan and I decided to make our friendship a courtship. And for the past 2 months, we've been engaged. What a whirlwind. I believe from the moment we started hanging out, I knew I was going to be with him. I remember telling Jodie that even though I couldn't see myself with him after our first time out, I could see us together at some point. And it wasn't soon after that that in my mind I was saying we'd be married some day. Strange how strongly we both felt for each other right off the bat. He's still amazing to me this day. We have our issues, but it's a relief to know that we can work them out. I know it's still early in our relationship, but I believe with God's help we'll always work things out.

So we're still scrounging around for wedding locations and reception areas. We found one place, Grandfather's Barn, that would house our reception for $350. I'm pretty sure this is what we're going to use, just hoping we can fit all our guests inside and still have a dance floor and be comfortable. Not sure we'll have the ceremony on site or not. So once we get all that decided I think I'll somewhat be able to relax. So far, we have my dress, his tux, my possible bridesmaids dresses, and our wedding colors picked out. Still soooo much more to do, but just taking it one step at a time.

So that being said, even though there are a ton of stressors on both of us right now (wedding, finances, work, etc), we are still happily engaged. :)
