- Wedding: February 2010
A little background……….So, Mr. Menard & I have been together for 5 and a half years (exactly tomorrow!). We grew up in the same church when we were younger & have been dating since we were 13 and 15. We’ve lived long distance two different times in the past 5+ years but we made it work.
This morning we left way earlier than we usually would and got to church about 45 minutes early, which should have been a hint! This church has been a part of our lives since we were little and holds several special memories for us. This is where we met, he asked me to be his girlfriend, & our first kiss was outside of our youth building.
He walked me in front of the steps of the sanctuary and told me he loved me and asked me if i would spend the rest of my life with him and if i would marry him! it was the sweetest thing ever! he has been so nervous these past few days. He cried a little last night and i couldnt get him to tell me what was going on & he was the one who was teary eyed during the proposal. He was too cute.
As soon as i get my hands on a camera ill be sure to get a picture up!! My ring was my MawMaw’s ring. She’s been married to my PawPaw for over 40 years. Mr. Menard has joined the army and starts basic/ait this March. After he graduates, we’re going to pick out a bridal set and im going to see about having the diamond incorporated somehow…but we’ll see!
-OFFICIALLY ENGAGED! 🙂
