Catch Up

Catch up... So I got engaged to the most amazing man on January 28th! It was the most amazing day and I was totally suprised! I came home on my lunch break from work to find rose petals leading to my room and when I walked into my room there were candles all over and he was standing there with a bouquet of my favorite flowers. He is truly the sweetest, most loving, wonderful man I know and I cannot wait to start my life with him on August 13th! My entire life I have dreamed about what my wedding will be like and I hope I can pull it all off while living in another state! So also exciting...the week I got engaged so did two of my cousins! Cam got engaged to Aurielle on Tuesday, I got engaged to Miguel on Friday and Regan got engaged to Daniel on Saturday! 3 in a week, our family couldn't believe it! And then 2 weeks later Paige got engaged to Marshall! We have lots of weddings to look forward to this year and all 5 weddings are people from our little town of Valley Center...aka the greatest place on earth!

After I got engaged on Friday the next exciting thing for us was my candle passing ceremony. I sometimes take DG for granted when I don't come around all the time and I forget how important the past 3 and a half years have been in Delta Gamma but when I got to stand in front of my friends and sisters and tell them about my engagement it was a reminder of how much Delta Gamma means to me. Everyone has been so supportive and loving throughout my relationship with Miguel and I honestly don't know what I would have done without my sisters! Being in a long distance relationship is hard but when there are people there for me all the time it makes it much easier. So I look back at the past 3 years and I am so lucky I have been able to know the most amazing women around! My family, my fiance,my faith, my sorority, and my friends are the most important things in my life. For them I am truly blessed and grateful.

Three words that mean everything.

the future is bright

for the longest time i only lived in the moment. what was going on right then and there. living like that has given me so many wonderful, crazy, spontaneous, happy memories. but now i have grown up and for the first time in a long time i am not thinking about what i am going to do tonight but what am i going to do in my life. i have a wonderful family to spend eternity with, my cousins are having a baby girl in may, i will eventually graduate from college, i will travel, i will meet new people, i will start my own family, i will get a dog, i will love, i will fail, and i will live. i am so excited for what the future has in store for me and i am truly happy.

take me as i am or watch me as i go

I came across this quote the other day..."take me as i am or watch me as i go." simple, and to the point. if you dont like me for me then leave me alone. i started to think about how many times i have tried to be something that i am not. whether it's for a boy that i like or a friend its not ok to change who you are for someone else. i am who i am its that simple. i am not organized in my personal life, my room is always a mess, i love cold pizza and orange juice for breakfast, i count the cereal on my spoon, i hate odd numbers, i talk a lot, i am loud, my family will always come first, i let things go when i should say something, i forgive too easily, i love with my whole heart even if it will hurt me in the end, i get lost in books and movies, i laugh at my own jokes, i pick fights hoping someone will challenge me back, i am overly competitive, im not big on animals, i love being the center of attention, i miss california everyday im not there, i hate not getting my way, i am deathly afraid of mice and i am a homebody. this is who i am. I a big believer that the people in my life now are there for a reason. i have amazing friends, roomates, DGs and family members that make all the difference in my life.
