WeddingWire asked me to pick one word to describe the love Nathan and I have. Umm…not an easy task, let me tell you! I probably spent a solid couple hours on thesaurus.com trying to find a word that described, well, #allthefeels. So my strategy was to first pick the photo we loved the most, and then maybe the word would just come to us in some sort of cosmic way. Well, the photo was an easy pick. This photo was taken at the reception of our good friend’s, Hannah & Evan’s, wedding reception. Sometimes I wonder if Nathan and I get invited to the wedding purely because everyone knows that we are secretly dancing fools. We’re pretty much the first ones out there on the dance floor and the last ones to leave. The more I thought about the things that we love about each other, the more I was drawn to “fun-loving”, because we are. Laughter fills our lives, and that’s something I value above all things.
Here’s a few other photos that capture #ourkindoflove…

And last, but not least, the first photo of us – April 28th, 2016 – this was technically our 4th date and the day I graduated with my Ph.D. from the University of Florida.
This was a pretty big moment for Nathan and I, because (1) we hadn’t been dating for that long, and (2) by attending graduation he was going to end up meeting most of my close friends and immediate family. Brave, right?! Well, the real story is that he wasn’t completely sold on going, but his roommate (one of his groomswomen) managed to convince him. It was the most important moment of my life (so far) and I’m so thankful that he worked up the courage to be there to share in that experience with me, and that my good friend Andrea had the foresight to snap this photo.
