After 5 years...

I know everyone is going to be shocked that I'm finally writing in my blog after a year, but I decided that getting engaged was blog worthy : ) So.... I'M ENGAGED! It all started almost exactly 5 years ago when he asked me to junior prom.
After that, it's all history! We have been best friends since and will be for a long long time : ) The engagement came as a huge surprise to me. We had gone ring shopping and he asked me if I wanted to go out to breakfast on the following Saturday and so I assumed that was when it was going to happen. Little did I know he had other ideas... My birthday was on Thursday and I had rehearsal all night so we didn't get to do much, but after my mom was on the phone with my dad (i found out later that no one was on the phone) and apparently he had left something up by the temple from taking pictures earlier. My mom acted a little frustrated and frazzled and said that we had to go look for it. We ran across temple square with our violins in the freezing cold. When we got to where he left it I saw someone sitting on a bench that looked a lot like Matt.... and it was. My mom took my violin and suddenly disappeared. Matt then pulled out a little white box and said he had something else to give me for my birthday. (earlier he had given me a picnic set which I was SO excited about) I opened the box and looked up and he was on his knee and he asked me. Of course I said.... YES! I have to say it was the greatest birthday EVER! After that, his family had cake and ice cream ready for me and my parents and I went over to celebrate. I am so excited to be apart of the Taylor family!
The date is July 10, 2010 and I can't wait! My sister is getting married on July 23 so it is going to be quite the eventful summer for my family. (not to mention one new niece and one new nephew!) I keep telling my mom .... be careful what you pray for! : )
I'd have to say I'm the luckiest girl on earth! Thanks Matt!

Nothing better for me than a good bedtime story about falling in love. I love that photo of the prom with the pitchfork! You guys look great together and I think it's fanTAStic that we have a wedding to look forward to in the 2nds! Can't wait to meet him!

Every day I think about you two and every time I do I can't help but get a silly grin on my face. I'm sure people have seen it and are wondering what in the world is that girl staring at and smiling for. I know this is obious but I couldn't be happier with your choice. He seriously was meant to be in your life...and mine...and the families! Love you guys!
