Life Lately

Since I took a year and a half off from blogging, I thought I’d tell you a little bit about what’s been going on lately.

 

The biggest news is that David and I got married on June 9, 2018. The wedding was amazing and everything we hoped it would be (more to come on that later). I’m so happy and lucky to have David as my husband and the last 9 months have been wonderful. I’m also really glad the wedding is behind us because planning it took about 5 years off my life.

In December we went to Mexico for our honeymoon and had a wonderful time (more to come on this also). We also have a trip to the UK and Ireland coming up that I’m VERY excited about.

 

Life Lately

Besides getting married, there have been some other changes for me lately. In the past two months I started getting more serious about my health. It was long overdue. I’ve started intermittent fasting, counting calories, and eating much healthier food. I know it mostly sounds like common sense, but I haven’t always had a healthy relationship with food. Taking these steps and ACTUALLY STICKING TO THEM is a big deal for me. I’m also going to yoga 4 times a week and I’ve noticed a huge improvement in my anxiety and my body. Now I just need to work in some cardio to keep my heart healthy and work on burning calories.

 

The past year and a half has been absolutely amazing. That’s not to say that there haven’t been hard times, but despite any hardships that I have faced, this has without a doubt, been the best year of my life.

Our Wedding Venue Dilemma

 

David and I have been engaged for a month and half and still have no idea what we are doing for our wedding. I know we have time to figure it out, but since we are both in our 30’s and want kids someday, I feel pressure to get things moving and at least figure out a  venue and a date.

 

Neither David or I have any close ties to our state of Georgia. I grew up in California and he grew up in the Northeast. We just moved here for  work and we don’t really want to get married here. Additionally, the majority of our wedding guests are from out of town and would have to travel regardless of where we chose to have a wedding, so we figured why not have it somewhere else? The one thing we both agree on is that we want a destination wedding in the mountains.

Our Proposal Story

I am so happy to share that David and I got engaged this past weekend during a magical trip to Burlington, Vermont.

 

Going into the trip I suspected that he might be planning to propose. He’d taken me to look at rings in December to get an idea of what I wanted, so I knew a proposal was on the horizon. However, going into the trip I didn’t want to let myself believe that it would happen. I didn’t want to spend the entire trip anticipating it rather than enjoying the moment.

 

Friday had been my day to plan and I chose snowboarding. David got to plan Saturday and he told me we were going to some local breweries. So on Saturday, we headed out of Burlington towards the mountains. He told me he wanted to go to Stowe Mountain Resort before the first brewery and take a gondola to the top. He said he’d heard the view was beautiful. That was when I started to get suspicious, but I went with it.
