My heart is happy

One happy Monday evening, Caleb and I met with our photographer and got our engagement pictures done. Let me tell you, ever since I can remember... I had this vision in my head of how that evening would go with my future husband. A lot of me was nervous for that day, that it might be awkward with a photographer just staring at us...telling us what to do, etc...

& oh, was I wrong. This night ended up being a million times even more exciting than I had ever made it in my head. Caleb and I have almost never laughed so hard. Seriously, our photog was amazing, made us feel comfortable, and let us just be, well, us.

We live in a small town in Cincinnati, but man do we love the big city. We love to go downtown, and now I am craving a Saturday day date with him to just explore. Park the car on a side street and just roam. One day it'll happen. So now I'll just zip it, and let you enjoy some of my favorites.






























AND OF COURSE, we had to show you guys some silly ones. If those weren't good enough ;)




I hope you all enjoyed laughing at us through these. If you can't tell, we like to have fun. 
Even when it means singing along with the middle school rapper girl gangs that decide to show up to our photo shoot. I went with it, and gave the girl the "oh I see you" kind of face:


and yes... I get to marry this hunk ;) -- excuse my sick face, he just had a GQ moment and I HAD to share.


Obviously, there were way too many pictures to share them all. But I figured showing some of my favorites would please you guys ;)

I am so excited to do my first giveaway on Monday! WOO!!! Stay tuned ;)
