I Don’t Wanna Forget

I can’t believe this time last week we were just sitting on the beach without a care in the world. Well, I was. Justin was sitting there being all nervous haha. He did a heck of a job hiding it, though. Sneaky sneak! 😉

In this past week, we’ve experienced something so incredible. I can truly understand how everyone feels like when they’re first engaged and it truly is magical! There’s just a happy glow that follows you around and nothing can rain on your parade no matter how hard it tries. It’s a wonderful feeling!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 

I wanted to share a few things with y’all that we’ve truly enjoyed experiencing and we don’t want to forget: 

– Smiling every time I think about Justin proposing. Gah! I’m doing it again! It just seems so unreal! Ahh!!! Is this real life?!

– The excitement in sharing your good news with your loved ones! It was so much fun calling our families to announce that we were finally engaged! Although most of them knew, it was still so awesome to share such exciting news! Hearing people squeal through the phone because of their excitement was amazing!

– Responding back to all of the kind texts and comments from everyone was overwhelming in the best way! We received so many happy congratulations!!! It was just unreal to soak it all in!

– Looking down at my left hand and seeing sparkly bling is just AHHHH!!!! So incredible hahaha.

– Talking with your brides and grooms and getting to fully understand their excitement is the best!

– Knowing that Justin and I are officially a team for the rest of our lives is the best. It’s us against the world and I’m so excited to do life with him!!! We’ve been waiting for this forever!!! 🙂

Okay, I’m sure I could keep going on and on, but I’ll spare y’all! haha. I’m just so thankful for this season in our lives! We’re so excited and we can’t wait to experience it! 

Thanks again to the wonderful Amanda Hedgepeth for capturing the best day ever!!! We love you so much, lady! <3
