five years ago...


... Eric couldn't contain his excitement. He kept dropping hints of what was to come that evening.



... I remember getting my nails done, curling my hair just how he liked it, and dressing up in my favorite outfit. I had to look perfect for one of the most special and memorable days of my life!



... I was popping batteries in the camera on the drive, which made Eric a nervous wreck. But then I left the camera in the car {fail}, which made Eric relax a bit.



... Eric took me back to where we had our first date. He told me how much he loved me, got down on one knee and PROPOSED!! Even though I saw it coming, there was no way to prepare me for the emotions I felt that night. I couldn't believe this guy, my perfect guy, wanted me for eternity!! 5 years ago today, Eric asked me to be his wife... and obviously I said YES ;)
