April 4th. Do you know what YOU were doing last year on April 4th?
Nope, me either.
Do you know what you were doing two years ago on April 4th?
Yup, I sure do!
Two years ago from this day, Jay and I set out to enjoy a wonderful weekend away in Lake Placid, NY. When we left our house, it was a fairly nice day, but as soon as we arrived in Lake Placid, the snow was falling and it was CHILLY!
We stayed in a beautiful hotel that gave us a phenomenal view of the lake. Once we arrived and were ready to check in, I found out that for “some reason,” we were even given an upgrade to our room.
The weekend was definitely off to a great start, despite the weather. We braved the sleet and snow and enjoyed a little shopping in the downtown area. Eventually, we headed back up to our hotel room to get ready for a nice dinner out.
Well, the dinner was the least of my concerns once I realized that there was much more going on that was about to change my life…
Yes Yes!! Two years ago today, after almost 10 years of dating, Jay asked me to be his wife.
Obviously, I took the whole thing very seriously…
Hehe. I’m pretty sure that this picture was taken well after everything happened. Oh yes, and in case you haven’t already read our engagement story, feel free to check it out on the wedding website I created.
Honestly, there’s only two other things I can remember about that evening; we were given free champagne from our waiter at dinner after we told him our news, and we came back and ate a bunch of chocolates while soaking it up in our enormous hot tub.
Talk about a great day, right???
I’m not sure if today will nearly compare to the excitement that was two years ago, but hey, at least I’ve got my memories!
Happy Engagement Day, Jay!
(Clearly, I’m a big fan of celebrating any anniversary!)
This morning, I enjoyed another lovely cereal combo bowl…
…I’ve got my coffee, and now I’m ready to tackle my day!
Questions for the Day:
Do you have a fun engagement story?
Do you celebrate different anniversaries (wedding/dating/engagement/etc…)?
