I've been following Project Wedding on Facebook for a few months now-- I love it! Now that I'm engaged, I decided to become a member. I'll start with telling our story...

Arty, my fiance, and I met in 2004 during an internship. We hit it off right away and quickly became friends. After that summer, we lost touch, and I didn't see or hear from him for a few years. I did, however, keep in touch with a mutual friend of ours (who, coincidentally, interned with us, as well), as we ended up working for the same company.

In April of 2007, this mutual friend separately invited each of us to a baseball game. Long story short, when I saw Arty again, I got instant butterflies. :) We pretty much picked up where we had left off and started chatting daily via email then phone. That October, we made it official and became a couple!

It's crazy how soon I 'knew' that Arty was THE ONE. I felt it. He was my best friend. I could completely be myself. We just fit...we're cute together! Sure, we have our 'moments', but what couple doesn't? And I can truly say our 'moments' have made us stronger.

We like to travel and try to do so as much as we can, even if it's a little get-away trip. We usually go later in the year, but this year, we took a trip right at the beginning of the year. We spent two awesome and fun weeks in China. The highlight of the trip was a visit to The Great Wall-- I had wanted to see this for YEARS. We were limited on time, so Arty and I took advantage of the time and got as far as we could on the Wall. On our way back down, we stopped at a cliff overlooking the Wall. It was there that he completely shocked me and took my breath away when he proposed! It was absolutely PERFECT and amazing! I cannot wait to plan our wedding and spend the rest of my days with him...

I have TONS of ideas, but it'll be a bit before I get things up here... have to figure out how to use this, first. ;)
