six years ago...


...the man could NOT keep a secret (for the record, he still can't. He gets so excited about surprising me that it never really ends in surprise, ha!) and in a round about way, he basically told me which night it was going to happen.

...I got my nails done and made sure my hair looked perfect.

...I loaded new batteries in my camera (I couldn't risk having dead batteries that night!) and then accidentally left my camera in the car anyway.

... he took me to the spot where we connected on our first date (after 30 minutes or so of complete awkwardness. For the love of first dates!)

...he got down on one knee and rushed through a proposal just before the sun went down :)

Six years ago I said YES to my main man, my favorite person in the world, my forever love! And despite the hard times, we've had way more good times and a perfect little girl because of our love.
Six years ago Eric made the BEST decision by choosing me.... but I made the even better decision by choosing him right back! I truly do love him more than ever!!

So cute! Happy engagement anniversary! My husband was the same way, he couldn't keep the secret. He was so excited about buying a ring he couldn't keep it to himself...or his friends...or my sister...or me. Haha!
