Becoming Affianced.

February 22nd, 2012 by     

It began with a trip to Grand Junction, Colorado, at the end of July to see a friend of mine get hitched. John and I decided it would be a great chance to get away and take a mini vacation. My friend’s wedding was in Palisade, which just so happens to be a gorgeous area with vineyards and orchards galore. The next day, we ventured back into Palisade to peruse the local farmer’s market and orchards. We stumbled upon Davis Family Farms and the owner, Becky, couldn’t have been sweeter to us. She told us to grab a peach and take a stroll through the orchards, to which we gladly obliged! Neither John nor I had ever been in an orchard, so we jumped on the opportunity.

We were walking through, enjoying our peaches (which were amazing, I might add) and taking in the awesome views. I kept talking about how happy I was there because it couldn’t be more fantastic. As I was taking pictures, I noticed that John was hanging out around the very end of the orchard. I thought it mildly strange, but then went about enjoying myself. We came back together and he kept saying how much he loved me – something I couldn’t get enough of because it was adorable.

Eventually, John held my hands and said, “Shauna, I do love you. I want to marry you.” I, in all of my wise splendor, said, “Ah, thank you!” He asked, “Well, do you want to marry me?” I said, “Well, sure!”

As I mentioned in my post “Two Brides” my sister is also getting married. As her wedding date draws closer I can’t help but be amazed at everything she’s pulled together since January!

Not for me though. We’re celebrating one year of engagement (take that Mrs. 6 Days Engaged)! This has been one of the best years of my life. Being engaged is exciting and stressful all at the same time. For 12 solid months I’ve been able to call myself a bride… and I have 8 more months of it left.
