Two Year Engage-iversary




"There is a moment--Oh, just before the first kiss, a whispered
word--something that makes it worth while."
F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise

Today is my two year Engage-iversary with Christopher.

Yes, we have a wedding date. 

For a long time, I really resented the cards I had been dealt coming into my adult life. Spending the first year being engaged five hours apart, seeing each other sporadically while dealing with a wide array of family drama was not what I had planned on when I said yes to Christopher and to being an adult post-college. But I'm thankful for the trials because they've brought me to where I am now. 

We are both in such a good place, individually and together. Much stronger than I could have ever imagined. And now we're almost a year away from being the McAfee's. {Back story in case you don't know: Christopher changed his last name to McAfee in honor of his grandfather and their relationship.} It's a really exciting, and busy time planning a wedding and celebrating with our friends as they experience their weddings as well. But we're so excited to be doing it together; we're a team, through the good and the bad. Right now, there is a lot of really really good, and I'm thankful for that. 

Don't you just love this sneak peak of our engagement session?! More to come later this week...in the mean time, follow our photographer, Ari Merritt Photography
