Dun, dun, daa, dunnnn....

That was my rendition of Here Comes The Bride because I got engaged a few weeks ago!! We were on a trip to San Antonio and Gustavo made sure I had the most beautiful and memorable weekend. We went to the symphony, the rodeo, took a boat tour on The Riverwalk. He also scheduled me a facial at The Valencia hotel, which was divine. We went to the beautiful McNay museum and visited The Alamo along with the rest of the missions on the Mission Trail. He proposed to me in a mansion that is now a beautiful restaurant called The Guenther House. They had this lovely gingerbread house at the entrance. The bride and groom on top had
a striking resemblance to us.

After being in shock for at least two full weeks, I have now embraced that I have a new part time job--wedding planner. I joke with my friends that I must have missed out on the Bride Gene because I am not that girl who has her whole wedding planned already. To tell the truth, I always dreamed of eloping to Italy. Now, most guys would be cool with that, but my dear, sweet Gustavo just loves weddings!

I admit that I am coming around to his way of thinking. When I officially reserved the wedding location today, I felt the beginnings of excitement and wonder of all that is a wedding. So, we have the first two key elements tackled, the date and the location. On September 2 we will be married at The Ryan Nicholas Inn.
