My husband David and I have been together for almost 14 years. We started dating a year after we were introduced by close friends. No, it wasn’t love at first sight. We needed time to prepare our hearts and minds for what would happen next because after we started dating I knew 2 weeks into it that this would be the man I’d marry. I didn’t tell him of course, but I did accidentally say I love you first. So embarrassing and a story for another time.
We dated, became official and the rest is history. Since we were so young (there is a 6 year age difference between us) David waited over 5 years to propose, which was good because like most relationships we had lots of maturing and growing to do. He proposed in Lake Tahoe, we got married in Napa and we just had our first baby earlier this year.
We also have 3 dogs who we also consider our babies, Miley, Minnie and Sadie. We’ve had Miley since the start of our relationship and Minnie and Sadie made their way in our lives about 4-5 years later. We live in a small farm town near Sacramento, Ca and have another home in Tennessee near Nashville. David and I love to travel when we can, but we are mostly home working. At the end of most days, after putting our son to bed, that’s when we spend most of our time together catching up on shows and drinking really good wine. We strongly believe in the concept of marriage and what it adds to our lives, which is why I think I have such a strong passion for weddings. Marriage isn’t for everyone, but it is for us. I can’t imagine life without him. I feel so blessed each day that I get to see him and talk to him about all the boring and exciting things we have going on. I can’t wait to see where life takes us!
