Wedding anniversary month {part 1}

I can't believe my wonderful hubby and I have been married for almost a year. A YEAR?! Time has seriously flown by. It feels like longer actually. Like we were always meant to live our lives together. We just fit. That may be cheesy and corny and make you want to barf, but we do! Our life together feels like something we should have always been doing. And that makes my heart happy :)

Since it's our wedding month, I wanted to share a lil about our wedding prep. We had a VERY DIY wedding. We did as much as we could do ourselves and that's exactly how we wanted it.

But before there was a wedding to plan, there was friendship, dating and a proposal. Wanna hear our story? Here goes...

We met in late 2007. He is 3 years younger than me so at the time he was 19. I was 22. I thought he was sweet but was NOT going for a teenager! So, we were friends. For quite a while. We got to know each other as friends and only friends. It took us 2 whole years to realize there was something more between us.

During the summer of 2009 we took a guitar class together, just the 2 of us. I was nervous it would be weird since we had always hung out in a group but I was excited to get some one on one time with him. Since by this time I had realized the feelings I had for him were more than friendly ;)

So we hung out. Just the 2 of us. And it was awesome. We learned how to play guitar. Kinda, if I picked one up now no magic would happen. But learning to play guitar wasn't the point. We were learning about each other as more than friends. So, we continued talking and having fun all summer.

September 18 2009 we went to Disneyland together. We had a blast. We stayed til after midnight, watching the fireworks, walking around just being together. We decided we should head home but on the walk to the car he suggested sitting down to people watch. I wish I had a picture of the fountain we sat pretty. And that's where he popped his first question. Asking me to be his girlfriend. AHH!! So September 19th we started our more than friends relationship.

Like what you're reading so far? Stay tuned, I'll share more soon :)

But I won't leave you hanging too terribly... here are a couple pics from early in our relationship...

Our first trip to Disneyland together :)

Did I mention that Disneyland was our "place"? We went there together for the first time on his birthday, in August, and they let you get in free on your bday. Score! I had a pass at the time so we went, and he got a pass that day also. So from then on we hung out there a lot :)
