A Year Ago Today…

A year ago today, Mike surprised me at my internship, cookie cake in hand, and popped the question. Naturally I was more excited about the cookie cake. LAWL JK. Kind of. (He also had a bouquet of flowers and gorgeous diamond, obvi). I hiked 3 miles up a mountain before I figured out what was happening.

Sometimes I look back at the past year and just laugh. Quietly to myself, usually. It seems like only a few short weeks ago that I was having literal meltdowns about my wedding venue or griping about the awful service at Men’s Wearhouse.   I totally have room to dish out advice. Listen to your mom. Don’t fight it. That’s all.

And now we’ve been married for a month after being engaged just shy of one year. People said things would change, and so far I feel like the biggest difference is I love Mike more than I did before we got married.

You can read our engagement story here. It’s no high school romance, but it’s a good one.

Anyway, today is also my birthday and we have a pretty fun weekend planned that I will be sure to post about.
