Starting out


This blog is our first attempt at “blogging,” so bear with us. We are hoping to jot down our journey though our engagement and whatever holds for us after our “I do’s.” This should be fun!

Anyways, Shawn and I got engaged on New Year’s Eve 2006 in New Orleans. We were walking down the boardwalk on the river when he sat me down on a park bench. Personally, I was ready to hit Bourbon Street, but he had different intentions. He got down on one knee and proposed. It was so sweet…and definitely unexpected! So, for the past four months, it has been non-stop planning. The planning has been fun, especially since I love checklists, to do lists, and all of that organizing stuff. I guess I’m weird like that, but it sure has helped!
