First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage...

Big C and I started dating in 2008 and were together 5 years before we got married. We had a long distance relationship for the first 2 years, as I was still in Winnipeg attending the University of Manitoba and he was working in a village about an hour and a half away. Once I graduated, I got a job in said village and moved in with Big C, since he was totally NOT going to move back to Winnipeg. He grew up in Winnipeg and just didn't like city life. He much prefers small towns and the country.

That same year, in autumn 2010, we moved into our new house. It is small (only one bedroom at the time) but since it was just the two of us, we certainly didn't need big. It has a beautiful backyard, where we cultivated a fair-sized garden and I often read under the big willow tree.

Right after we moved into our new house, we adopted a beagle puppy! We named her Peggy Sue and we spoil her rotten.


Then on Mabon in 2011, Big C proposed...

Yes he really did put the ring in a kinder surprise. I had a sneaking suspicion of what what happening but I went along with it, because who the heck is lucky enough to have a man propose with a kinder surprise!?

And on June 1, 2013 we had the most awesomesauce wedding.


Like most people say, it was truly a wonderful day and I'll never forget it, hopefully, for as long as I live.
