Looking to the future of this little website, I have high hopes! Todd and I both love to write, have fun, do life, and share, with others, the adventures that we go on together! I think this website can be much more than a look into our wedding planning, triumphs and struggles included! I think that it could be a look into our life as a newly married couple, and in the future, our life as professionals, parents, teachers, and as REAL quirky people! Needless to say, I am very excited!
As all of Todd and I's wedding planning is picking up, which you will hear about later, I can't help but remember where we started! I was student teacher at Sterling High School, in preparation of graduating from Sterling College, and Todd was already teaching English and journalism there! I remember the first time I met him! My host teacher and I were standing in the hallway after school, looking at some student projects on the wall, as Todd walked by! He was looking pretty nerdy, with glasses, a backpack, and of course, sporting his classic, black Converse shoes.
However, as my host teacher introduced him to me, he caught my eye enough to cause me to look at his hand for a wedding band.
I have no idea what compelled me to do that, but after seeing that his ring finger was naked, I felt excited and giddy! I remember thinking to myself that he would probably think I was too young, or he probably already had a girlfriend, or he would think I was too childish because I hadn't graduated college yet. (Yes, there is a five year age difference between us!)
But after weeks of talking at school, some texting, a little/lot of flirting, a date, and many chats later, he informed me that he had the same feelings that day; the excitement, the questions, and something a little extra! Remembering back to our first meeting, he recalled that I had a cute butt! (That little thought still makes me giggle!)
There will be many chances for me to give you accounts of our past, and I am so excited to do that, but I knew that telling you about our first meeting would be the best place to start!
Todd and I are both so stoked for our upcoming wedding! We will have many tales to tell about our thoughts and emotions as we move toward July, and I am sure there will be many planning successes and blunders, as well!
