, Engaged March 2011

We met in Myrtle Beach, SC in the summer of 2010. He was a full-time transplant from Chicago, I was a summer-transplant from Boston. On our first date we went to see Toy Story 3, we both cried at the end, and I knew then that I was going to fall hard for him. We were nearly inseperable for the rest of Summer. I had mildly toyed with the idea of him coming to live in MA with me; seemed just a dream. At season's end, I had to come home, but we agreed to try the long-distance thing. His school reunion came in October, and I met him in his hometown, got to meet his parents and childhood friends... We had a blast. In late October, he found a job up north near me. He moved in with me right before Halloween. We had a fantastic five months of living together, getting to know each other better, our quirks, our similarties, our wants...We had a lot of great holidays together. The firsts of many years' to come. Flash-forward to the end of March, 2011: We are now engaged, an adorable scene in an Italian restaurant surrounded by my family. We're in the VERY beginning stages of planning a wedding for 2012, and things couldn't be better.
