Engagement Life

I love being engaged. I feel like I am always adjusting the position of my hand so the whole world can see that I am engaged. It really is the best feeling to make that commitment that to someone else and know that you have someone else making that commitment to you.  Darren and I decided to stay in Calgary where I have been living the past 5 months. It sometimes feels like I am miles away from my family and friends, but I really do love it. We are living in a basement suite for the next year until our house is finished being built.... I can't even believe I am saying that. I will have to post pictures soon... we are so excited.. and let me tell you it is so much fun to choose everything... I am going a little crazy. I will post pictures soon.

Bridesmaids and Wedding Season

What makes this whole thing alot more fun is, my two best friends getting married. Jenni the bride in the top photo, has been by my side since elementary and married my fiance (it feels weird saying this) best friend. Lindsay on the far right waited for Blake as well for two years as he served a two year mission as well for our church and she was my substitute boyfriend for the 720 days. Blake and Darren are also great friends. I am so excited to these girls by my side in 22 days.. plus my little sister Alexa, and excited for when we are able to all spend more time with each other after this craziness ends.

We are so lucky to have such great friends surround us.


I am so excited. I get married in 22 days! I have thought about this day often over the past two and a half years. Especially the two where Darren and I were apart, only communicating through emails and letters once a week and a phone call on Christmas and Mother's day. I never thought it would actually happen, but here I am counting down the days to be MARRIED. I consider myself the luckiest girl in the world to get to spend my life with Darren and I decided a blog is the perfect way to look back and remember all the special moments we have together.
