4) Ya Just Know!

It all started on January 4, 2008, I met the man that I’d only dreamt of! We were inseparable from day one, and knew after our first date (Jan. 5th) that we wanted to get married. Everyone thought we were crazy, but when you know…ya JUST KNOW! On February 6, 2008, I went to church with my mother for Ash Wednesday services and I prayed for everyone and gave thanks, but I also ask God for a sign that we were doing the right thing, that we werent rushing into things. The very next day I entered a contest on Sunny 99.1 for their annual wedding on the biggest diamond give-away, WE WON on February 8th! We were to be married the next week on Valentine’s Day! We were estactic! That had to have been the biggest sign EVER! The next couple of days were a complete whirlwind but oh so worth it. Two of our prizes where beautiful rings from DCI, we love them and are so greatful to Fred & Rick for being so wonderful and generous to us.  

Oh by the way…I was never proposed to! lol We had talked about and knew we wanted to get married, then after we won our wedding and were both so overwhelmed with preparing for a wedding in five days we didnt realize it until after our wedding! Crazy I know…I just wanted to share our (fairytale) story. No one should ever settle, remember that good things come to those who wait, and there are happy endings and a treasure at the end of the rainbow. Ya never know…he might propose to me one day! =)

PS…I stare at my ring every day, through out the day! I love it so much!
