Hello Everyone!!

A picture of us taken in front of the tree at Rockefeller Center

Hi everyone. I am starting this blog to update everyone on our upcoming wedding. I have a close friend that is doing the same with her pregnancy and it's so great to see the all the pictures. So check back from time to time to see what is progressing. I think the count is down to 42 days now!!! Talk to you all soon! -Love Melissa


How it all began...............On January 3, 2006 Ryan and I were on a plane to New York. So far in my short life, it is my favorite vacation spot. Before the plane took off Ryan told me he had to go to the bathroom. Seconds later my name was called over the loud speaker on the plane. I was asked to come to the front of the plane. Once I made my way up there I saw Ryan on one knee. He asked over the loudspeaker if I would marry him. What a proposal! It was a great start to our trip. Although it was very cold in NYC we were too busy being on cloud nine to notice.
