I said yes
There are so many beautiful love stories out there. I have been so fortunate to have one of my own. Jon and I met in 2006 in Florence Italy while I was studying abroad. He was finishing his MFA in classical painting and I couldn't help but fall in love with this handsome artist. We moved the first part of our relationship quickly (we moved in together after being in the same city for 4 months), and enjoyed the years to follow. After 5 1/2 wonderful years and many special moments together, Jon asked me to marry him. It was the most amazing moment of my life. I am so blessed to have found a person that I enjoy being with so much, and even more fortunate that he feels the same way. We have decided to get married in Italy, where our love story started, with a small intimate gathering of family and close friends. I'll try to keep the wedding planning posts to a minimum, but don't be surprised if I start complaining about my crappy Italian language skills. Here's to the next year of surprises filled with happiness and love. Cheers!
