this is how it happened

**all photos in this post were shot by Kayla Magness

I highly recommend her for any photography needs you may have

after the ridiculous post from yesterday I feel as though it is time for a gushy husband post.
it is so strange to think that nine months ago we weren't even engaged.
now I am married to my favorite person on the planet and all of my other favorite people were there to see it.

Aaron and I dated for 7.5 years before the proposal came.
needless to say, it was a complete and utter shock when it finally happened.
and of course, in true Aaron fashion, it was completely random.
just a silly Tuesday when Breanna and I were on a girls trip.

Aaron had spent the weekend with his friend from high school.
they ate too much, they drank too much, they played way too many video games.
I guess he got to thinking, if I don't hurry up, this might be my real full-time life.
Monday [after two days without me] he left work early and went ring shopping.
after he bought the ring he stopped at every family members house to tell them.
my dad & step mom, my mother, his mother, his father, my grandparents
literally, everyone in my life knew before I did.

Tuesday morning, he called in sick to work and hopped in the car to Chicago.
with the help of Breanna they got me to the right place at the right time and it all happened.
I almost cried as soon as I saw him, but I held it together.
I had no idea why he was there, I thought it was just a visit, Aaron is that type of guy.
when he got down on one knee and took out the box I sorta panicked.
"Are you serious?" "What are you doing?" "What the fuck is happening?"
[you know me, of course I dropped the f bomb!] I even said no a few times.
I really don't know what I was thinking, it was all so completely overwhelming.
obviously I said yes

the proposal happened in April
the wedding happened in September
and now all the hype is over
but I am still the happiest girl ever
