I am so excited that the 4th of July has arrived (well tomorrow it will have arrived). This is my absolute favorite holiday, and now we have even more reason to celebrate. One year ago I woke up full of excitement to begin the cookout at my grandparents, like we do every year. Dave and I gathered all 200 jello shots, put on our American gear and headed out the door. It happened to be very windy so the normal waterfront activities didn’t take place, we all hung out in the backyard, played some games, and enjoyed each others company.

Little did I know the day was quickly about to do a quick turn around. That is when Dave took me for a walk down the pier and dropped to his knee. Our engagement was perfect for us, and it is such an amazing story to tell. All of our friends and family were there, and it was on the best holiday. I’m pretty happy with how everything happened.


Now here we are one year later…married! I never thought the day would come, but this year went by so incredibly fast. I have enjoyed the planning process so much, and Dave and I have fallen even more in love with each other. We learn something about one another all the time, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. Now as we embark on our newest adventure, I love to look back on the last year and see what life has given us. I thank God for Dave everyday, and I am so happy to be his wife.
