After years of secretly reading my sister-in-laws blog and totally wishing I could have my own, I have decided to take the plunge and start my own blog!!!
SOOOO... I guess I can give you a little background on us!!
We have known each other since we were five years old. We were in the same kindergarten class and he was my first "BOYFRIEND" (yes i had a "boyfriend" in kindergarten). I remember thinking I was so cool because a boy liked me until Valentines Day. James went ALL out and filled my bag with candy, stuffed animal, flower, etc. You name it, it was in the bag and my friends laughed their buts off at me. They all started teasing me and I was totally embarrassed, so I dumped him.
Eight years later James asked me to our freshmen homecoming dance. We didn't know it then but that was the start to a life long relationship! After one year of dating James surprised me with a promise ring! He gave me a gift bag and when I opened it there was a pack of gum (I still haven't figured out if he was trying to tell me my breath stunk or not) but anyways I tried to act excited because I didn't want to hurt his feelings but then like five minutes later he pulled out my promise ring. I loved and still love that ring so much. It is so meaningful to our relationship.
James proposed to me on October 2,2009 in Orange Beach, Alabama. We had decided for our four year anniversary we would take a long weekend to the beach together, little did I know it would be one of the best trips ever. We woke up that morning and decided to spend the day laying on the beach relaxing. After an hour or so it got a little chilly so we decided to go to the hot tub. While walking back up the beach he started walking slower and pulling on me so i turned around and he stopped looked at me and got down on one knee!!!! I was freaking out so much I don't know what exactly he said and it took me a couple seconds to say YES, but eventually after I realized it wasn't a dream I started jumping up and down and screaming and kissing him! It was such a great moment that we shared together. That day in general was so special, calling our friends and family and telling them the great news and just spending the day together and being so in love!

A year and a half later we finally got married!!! We were married on May 28, 2011. It was absolutely the best day of my life. I was so nervous in the last few weeks leading up to the wedding but on the wedding day I woke up so calm and so ready to be married to the most amazing man i have ever met. That day went by so quickly but it was so perfect in every way possible. All the things I had spent months worrying about didn't even matter anymore, everything and everyone was great. All the people that mattered were there and no one else mattered that day.(Wedding Day Blog Coming Soon!!!)

We have officially been together for almost six years and I can not imagine my life without him! He is such an amazing guy. He is my knight in shining armor who is ALWAYS there to protect me. My life could never be this amazing without him here with me. He is my best friend, he pushes me to better myself, he never lets me down, and most of all he loves me for the person I am.
We are now four months into our marriage and everything is going great.
I can't wait for my future blogging experiences and I hope you like what I have to say!
