So how did we get here? Here's the abridged and non-juicy version:
On October 12th, 2007 - I wasn't even two months in to my college career when my brother came to town to visit his girlfriend. They took me to my first fraternity party at my brother's fraternity (he was an alum, and she was good friends with lots of the guys there).
That was the first time I met my Mikey! It was brief, but we both remember it :) My brother's exact words were "This is Mike, you should date him". Okay... Mike says he remembers my curly hair the most and that it was intriguing. Thanks for something, crazy curls!!
Two days later, we went out to eat for a birthday dinner. He sat by me (I had my fingers crossed that he would) and that's where it all started. I like to say I was "in love at second sight". Everyone else saw it, too. By March 17th, we were officially official.
I graduated college in 2011 and by the end of the summer, I was ready to be a wife. Mike got the hint and proposed on October 19th, 2011, just over four years after we met. We basked in the glow of engagement for a few months and then planned our wedding for June of 2012.
