Wedding anniversary month {part 2}

Picking up where we left off... If you missed part 1 click here to check it out :)

We dated about 17 months before he proposed. But before we get to the proposal here's a lil more about our dating relationship...

He had met my family while we were just in the friends stage but once we were more than that he was around a lot more. And my family loved him from the start. He's a very lovable guy :) And from there I met his Mom and we got along great. Things started out just right.

We continued attending church together and hanging out with our same group of friends and of course spending more time just the two of us. Life was good!

Here are a few more pictures from our time together...

My first time riding a quad and shooting guns. Fun day!
We experienced a lot together in the beginning stages of our relationship and I feel that we really bonded through all these things. We spent long days together and never got sick of each other. We made decisions together easily. We just worked. God planned our relationship so wonderfully, our connection was first built as friends then became more. God is so good.

I was ready to be married to him and spend the rest of our lives together. But first we had to get engaged and have a wedding. Our next big step.

So Valentines Day 2010 rolled around and I thought that's when he was going to pop the question. We went to a nice dinner. And I waited... and waited... and it didn't happen that night. And I was bummed. He could tell. He told me he wanted to surprise me and that he didn't want me to "expect" it. So I pouted, a lil.

But not for long because his proposal came shortly after this...

Stay tuned for our proposal story :)
