Four Years Ago Today

Four years ago today, I went on a first date with the wonderful man who will become my husband on November 3rd, 2012!! Awwwww. For some people the number 13 is unlucky, but for us, it's extremely lucky. :) Back on April 13th, 2008, we had our first date at a local pub, James' Gate; we drank Sam Summer and chatted for hours. And since then, life has been more amazing than it's ever been! Mike proposed back on August 19th last year (you can watch a video and read about the proposal here if you'd like), and we've been happily and busily planning our big day ever since!

A few pics from our journey over the past four years...

This was the first picture taken of us together (in May or June of '08 maybe?).

One of our many one-arm-out-pictures, taken while hiking (a fav activity of ours!).

Sitting on a cow bench, obviously.

At one of the many craft beer festivals we've enjoyed!

At my graduation in 2010 for my Master's!

On our awesome Yellowstone trip.

In Kauai last summer!

After I ran the marathon last fall (and Mike ran the last 5 miles with me!).

And this one's from August 19th, 2011, the night Mike asked me to marry him! After he proposed, we went out to celebrate where we had our first date. :)

Only 204 days from today until we become Mr. and Mrs.! And I cannot wait.

Happy 4 years since we met, future hubby!! ♥

  7. I learned of your blog from my friend Jeanne Eddy, aka, Adirondack Baker, and visit regularly.
    First let me congratulate you on an obvious happy four years together and extend my wishes for a lifetime of joy, laughter and love.
    I work at a small hotel in Saratoga Springs and Jeanne frequently supplies baked goods for our guests….here it is… a shameless plug, but I want to make you aware of a weekend that our hotel offers 3 to 4 times a year that I think you would enjoy, given your love of craft beer and good food.
    We offer beer weekends in partnership with our local brewery, the old Saratoga Brewing Company and Sperry’s restaurant, home to master chef Dale Miller. We cover all your loves… beer, great food and travel. We are just 3 hours from Boston and it is a great weekend. Here is a link scroll down to Something’s Brewing.
