Ok, I'm not even really sure how to start one of these, but I lurk on here all the time and since we are only 8 months out, I figured it was time to start my own! About us: My name is Meagan and I'm 25 and work in Sales. DF's name is Kevin and he is 26 and works for a small university as the Director of Athletic Communications. We met in college where we both worked for the town's newspaper. I majored in journalism and took the only opening that was available at the paper, in the sports department. I worked the evening desk, taking scores and writing small blurbs about away games. DF was finishing his master's in Sports Administration and worked as a sports reporter for the paper and was constantly out covering games. He ended up working the night desk with me one night and convinced my boss to let me get out in the field as well. A few nights together covering games and I knew he was the one. Luckily he felt the same way and we've been together just over 3 years now. The Proposal: After losing my mom in August we decided to spend the first Christmas without her in Disney. We booked 9 days at Port Orleans French Quarter and hoped that being there would take our minds off of not having mom there for Christmas. The holiday was fine and we spent the day at the pool and the evening at Epcot. The next day I wanted to go to Animal Kingdom in the morning, but DF insisted we go to MK. When we got there we ate lunch. Immediately after I did not feel well so DF suggested we just go home. As we walked past the castle the show was going on. He suggested we wait on the bridge and just relax until the show is over and then we will go back to the resort. As the show finished, he got down on one knee and proposed!!!! I said "Of Course I will!" Immediately I felt better and we spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying the park and our engagement. When we got back to the room there was a card with balloons, pins and lots of mardi gras beads from Mickey. Apparently DF told the resort he was doing it and asked if there was anything they could do. It was the best day of my life! The Wedding: It never crossed our minds to get married anywhere but in Disney. DF called right after proposing and arranged a site visit for the day before New Years while we were still in Disney. We are having a wishes wedding January 7, 2011 at the Wedding Pavillion with a pre-reception at the White Hall Room and reception in the St. Augustine ballroom of the Grand Floridian. I am so excited to really start planning and get some great advice on some of the things I've already started!!
