By The Way, I'm Engaged.

The exact moment he asked me to marry him. Can't believe I was busy taking a selfie of us!
Hey there!  I've been itching to write this post all week, but I've really just been soaking the news in.  If you follow me on Instagram, you'll already know that Martin and I got engaged over the weekend! I can't even explain to you guys how I feel because I think I've been through all types of emotions over the last few days.  I'm excited, I'm scared, I'm happy and I'm nervous - but I swear I'm more happy than anything haha.  Becoming engaged to Martin wasn't a complete surprise because I knew I would be with him forever, but the way it happened and time completely caught me by surprise.  It was the most special moment and being a couple of many firsts with each other, it was only on brand for us to get engaged in a place we were discovering together, for the first time.  As of now, we're just so excited and it really makes me so happy that he's into wanting to be part of all the wedding planning that lies ahead of us - wish us luck!  

Anyway, mine and Martin's love story is my favorite - obviously a biased opinion, but explaining why I needed him in the beginning is my favorite part about our story.  When I met him, I was recently single.  Like super recently single, SO not looking and mad at every boy that crossed my path lol.  Dealing with an unfaithful person really got to me and I just knew I had to pick myself up and get back to ME.  When I met Martin, I didn't realize he was put into my life at the exact moment I needed him to be to fix me.  From the very beginning, he made me feel like I had to catch up and boss up.  He had all his goals aligned, working like crazy, going to two different types of school, and I was fresh out of college trying to find myself in the real world.  For the first time, I felt like the little dog but I loved it!  There was something about his drive that impressed me and looking back, it was because I'd never dated a guy who had serious goals and actually worked to achieve them without excuses.  I'm not talking about little goals, this kid had big boy goals and since we've started dating, he's knocked every single one of them off like a piece of cake - thanks to God, of course.  He kept me on my toes and in turn, inspired me to be just like him in the sense that I had to set goals and conquer.  I wanted to know more and more about him, it's like I fed off of this to make myself better.  In the end, choosing to pursue things with him was the best decision of my life and I could never look back.

We're a team. We have each others back and together we really do bring out the very VERY best in one another.  This relationship is what I could have ever dreamt of and with many prayers, this is what will remain forever.  There's so much that goes into how we met and all that jazz but explaining to people how I felt and what he did for me during the early dating phase is the best way for me to describe why I NEEDED Martin to be mine.  Sighhhh, you gotta love love!  I really could write a novel about us, but for now, it looks like we have a wedding to plan.  Cheers to being engaged to the love of my life!

He did SO good.
We met at this bar, over a tequila shot.  Obviously we had to go back to the same spot and celebrate, with a tequila shot.
