The night Brandon and I met, I made a comment to him about how I didn't want to get married until I was at least thirty (we'd literally just met and were talking about everything under the sun when I randomly brought it up). He asked me why and I replied about how I wanted to see the world, enjoy my career and have my own adventures before settling down.
|Brandon and I the night we met--you can probably guess from the picture that we met at a college party.|
(I have actually traveled more in the last two years of dating Brandon than I have in my entire life--here are a few of our adventures so far..)
|Brandon surprised me with a weekend away to the big city for my 21st birthday (shortly after he'd returned from Afghanistan). March, 2011.|
|I took Brandon to my home state of Colorado for his 25th birthday. We visited Red Rocks, toured Denver, strolled around the Botanic Gardens and, of course, had dinner at Casa Bonita. September, 2011.|
|Disney World--where we got engaged! December, 2011.|
|Visiting Brandon's folks in Tennessee--we hiked around Smoky Mountain. December, 2011.|
|Las Vegas! March, 2012.|
|Brandon's cousins beautiful wedding in Pierre, South Dakota (with Brandon's mom, sister, nephew and niece). June, 2012.|
I didn't plan on finding that someone in my early twenties, but I thank God every minute of every day that I did.
Here's to the start of the rest of our lives, Brandon. It's going to be a good life. I can feel it.
