The Story

WOW! I finally have a chance to breathe (and type)!

First, Dom left for the Officer Candidate Program in Quantico, Virginia on October 9th. We have been writing love letters back and forth since he is not allowed to have his phone. 38 more days until he graduates as an officer in the U. S. Marine Corps! December 14th cannot come soon enough!

Second, I finally chose a date for our big day! October 19, 2013! I just love wedding planning, but I wish I could devote more time to it without feeling guilty for ignoring school.

My engagements pictures came back. Holly Photography did an AMAZING job!!!!
Dom and I were taking pictures in a field before he left for OCS. We were just having fun during our photo shoot when I noticed he started getting... well... awkward! After an outfit change and some scenery change, we got talking about Holly's recent engagement. Well, Dom got down on one knee. I was thinking in my head, "What is he doing? OMG OMG OMG! That's what he is doing!" I didn't even give him a chance to ask me to marry him, I just started saying yes and hopping up and down!

Holly took amazing photos during the WHOLE thing and turned it into a great still-motion video. They both kept it a secret from me!Stinkers!

** Random fact: Did you know that 3% of the world has green eyes? Good thing Dom and I both have green eyes. The odds for our children to have these beautiful eyes are high!***
