5 Years Ago

Five years ago today, I was heading back to my college town

with the guy I’ve loved since I was 18 years old

eating dinner at our favorite restaurant

walking around the campus where we met

deciding to spend the rest of our lives together

Happy Engagement Day to the man who was so excited to propose to me
that he forgot to get down on one knee.

and I’ll never let him live it down.

I love you.


PS. Today also happens to be my best friend’s birthday. To find out why I love her so much, check out this guest post she wrote for me a while back :) CLICK HERE TO READ

She’s been my best friend since we were 12
and I’m lucky to have her in my life.

Happy Birthday Katharine!

    I love that you married your college sweetheart! Mark and I met in college but didn’t date. Our backstory is pretty adorable though, and maybe I’ll share it someday soon if he decides to get some moolah together and propose. 😉
