On December 13th Andrew and I headed to Fredericksburg, TX for a weekend getaway. We were celebrating our one year anniversary. In many ways I can’t believe it has been a full year since I met this man yet at the same time I feel like I’ve known him forever.
Saturday, December 14th was our actual anniversary and the first day towards our new future together. Andrew proposed to me at the same time we met a year ago and I said “of course, I will!”
Our weekend away in Fredericksburg was lovely. We were able to relax, have peace and quiet and see all the beautiful Christmas lights. We both love the holidays and this town truly knows how to celebrate. I think our favorite store was the local candy shop with homemade fudge and toffee.
We walked through many little shops and I was searching for the perfect Christmas ornament. Each year I add a new one that represents that year. Whether it is simply a cute ornament I liked at the time or something that is significant for our past year’s events. I also purchase a new ornament on our travels to new destinations.
After Andrew proposed on Saturday I knew I had to have the perfect ornament for our family tree. When I stumbled upon this beauty we both knew it was the one. The cross symbolizes our faith, the heart in the middle shows our love and the little diamonds stand for our new engagement. The large crystals at each end represent our two families coming together and bound by our faith and love in the middle.
Andrew knows me so well… The ring is perfect and is exactly what I would have picked out. I love the princess cut halo ring.
Now to plan a wedding…
