Decided to make my bio more private. Mainly because I realized I had quite a few views on things, and realized my family was checking some things out. I wasn't aware they knew this site existed :P So if you want to view more feel free to add me!

Nick and I met over 5 years ago. He saw my profile on a social networking site and messaged me. We attended different high schools but after we started talking we realized we went to the same technical school in the afternoons. About a week after we met we started dating.

Things were going really well for the first three years, and we decided to get engaged. Well after I was up at college for a while we realized we just weren't getting along anymore, and we ended up separating. For about a year we were off and on again. After awhile we both got our lives together and decided to try it again. Things finally seemed to stick, and a few months after that we found out I was pregnant. We didn't want to get married just because I was pregnant so we decided to wait a bit. We had our gorgeous daughter Eliza on July 1st last year.

We had planned to just have a courthouse marriage in January since we just didn't want to spend that kind of money on a wedding when we have Eliza to think about. But my parents wouldn't hear of it and they offered to help. They really wanted to see me have a real wedding since I'm their eldest daughter. So instead we became "officially" engaged on January 20th (5 years since we started dating). And now we're having a small-ish wedding on August 5th of this year. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It's going to be atCaberfaePeaksSki & Golf Resort inMichigan. I'm trying to watch the budget as much as possible since I don't want to be too much of a burden on my parents. So that includes a lot of do it yourself projects and trying to find the best deals I can. My colors are a white, light aqua blue, and some accents in black. Going for an almost casual feel, but a little bit formal.
