november 22 is a very special day in our book.  5 YEARS AGO on this day, we became engaged on the beach in oregon, as the sun set over the pacific.  it was the high point of a magical day we had spent roaming the willamette valley, tasting wines and discovering our mutual love for pinot noir and hazelnuts.  i am sure the engagement would have been just as magical had i not, just moments before the ‘bling’ was unveiled, uttered the words, “i really have to pee….do you think i could pee on these rocks?”  ah, leave it to me to ruin the moment with something completely UN-ladylike.  but it was still one of the most memorable and life-changing moments of our lives, and each year on this day, i am reminded of how much fun we had on our trip to portland, and of how lucky i am to be married to this man…

then just 1 YEAR AGO on november 22, we found out i was pregnant with our first child, after months of trying.  the timing seemed like it was just meant to be.  and what a long way we’ve come in just a year!  i love you, honey.  you have made me very happy….
