Hi everyone! I have been lurking and randomly posting for a couple of months now, so I decided with the holidays over it was time to start our planning journal! Our Wedding: Wednesday June 18, 2008 Ceremony -Italy Courtyard Reception -Narcoossee at Grand Floridian Dessert Party -Italy Plaza THE BEGINNING We met in 2000-we worked together - years and many life changes later we had our first kiss We spent hours just sitting and talking-mostly after work- I have 2 DS so I wanted to be careful who I introduced them to. After many months, I got them all together for miniture golf and dinner. All seemed well, my older DS loves golf so he "taught" DF the finer points. Then at dinner DS decided his stomach hurt and he was going to throw up After a lot of drama we called it a night and I was sure that was it!! Obviously I had some learning to do- he was in it - small pukey boys and all Finally it was time for our 1st trip together!! Disney came up- Disney it was I guess this is when I found out DF is a fan too!! 2004 was our first trip to WDW!And we have gone at least yearly since We had always "joked" that maybe someday we sould come back and get married-usually when the monrail passed the WP- but I honestly wasn't sure I "needed" to get married again --- In 2005 I found out I was pregnant!!! I about passed out when the test was positive- I didn't even wait until I got home I called DF from work! OK that sounds weird but I work in an Emergency Room so I took the test there. So for our 2nd trip there were no thrill rides for me! February 2006 we added a beautiful DS to our family our boys are now DS 11 DS 7 and DSalmost 2. the boys: DF and the boys: DF and me: THE PROPOSAL TOTALLY UNEXPECTED!!! WE were on our yearly DIS trip, January 2007. The 16th! We stayed at the Poly(loved it ) That morning we decided to walk to GF along the lagoon. DF says "maybe we'll come back and get married"---yeah-yeah-yeah Well, later that evening after a day a MK behind the castle outside CRT DF tells our oldest to take his brothers across the courtyard by the fountain. I was still clueless, I was lost in the fact that Dream along with Mickey was going on in the castle forestage-we hadn't seen it yet- So I was barely paying attention to DF when he says "In this year of a million dreams,will you make my dreams come true and be my wife!" I was so dumb struck, I said "thank you" He then puts a ring with a tag on it on my finger on the wrong hand! Just then the fireworks go off at the end of the show! It was like it was timed for us! our special place!(a few days later) THe CM started moving people around after the show ended- we had only that minute and had to get the boys- now playing in the fountain- so we wouldn't lose them! When we told the boys they responded "OH"!! What do little boys know anyway! I was excited! THE RING Like I said the ring had a tag on it- it was now on the left hand without a tag! DF bought it in the poly gift shop. It is a cute pink Mickey head ring! It now happily lives on my right hand-where it began! I had said from the beginning I did not want a ring! -WHAT!!! What was I thinking! I was wrong!! A woman, especially one planning a wedding can change her mind!! In one of the first bridal magazines I bought I saw a picture of a ring And it was official -I had to have it! I ordered the "catalog" and left it in the bathroom daily so DF would have something to look at and so began my "I dont need a ring quest" To make things complicated they did not sell this designer anywhere near where we live! I ordered it online from a store in Pennsylvania without seeing/touching/ or trying it on! It was delivered by UPS- the driver handed to my 6 year old!!!! Luckily I knew it was coming and was anxiously awaiting its arrival! We did go out together DF and I and pick out a beautiful princess cut stone ! So in May -4 months after our engagement I had a beautiful symbol for the world to see!1 Thanks for reading! more to come!
