Hola mis amigos!
My name is Miss Rockville, and I am so excited to be a new blogger for DC NearlyWeds! I have been following the site for over a year now, and I am thrilled to be able to share my journey with all of you. A little about myself - I just graduated from Towson University with a bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education, I've grown up in Rockville all of my life, and I love Redskins football and scrapbooking. :)
Mr. Rockville and I have known each other since we were 12 years old - in fact, when we first met we weren't a big fan of one another! If you can imagine little 7th graders passing each other in the hallway scowling and shouting names, well...that was us haha. Luckily we soon got past that and became friends, then best friends, and started dating junior year of high school. We had our ups and downs like any couple and Mr. Rockville soon proposed.
It was my 19th birthday (yes I'm the youngin' of the NearlyWeds, I'll be 22 at the end of the month!) and Mr. Rockville and I were headed up to NYC for my birthday present. After battling hours of traffic we finally arrived and had reservations at a gorgeous Italian restaurant. Dinner was delicious, but as always it started to rain, a yearly occurance on my birthday. I wanted to go back to the hotel, but Mr. Rockville begged me to take a walk with him in the rain to Central Park. I agreed, mumbling and grumbling the whole way until we reached a gathering of horse and carriages. Mr. Rockville suggested we take a ride and at this point I wasn't going to say no. We climbed into one and inside the carraige was a violinist and a bouquet of white roses (my favorite). As we rode around Central Park the violinist played romantic music for us. At one point she started to play "Canon in D", the song I want to walk down the aisle to. I smiled at Mr. Rockville and he nervously said "I can't wait to see you walk down the aisle to this song...will you marry me?" as he struggled to get down on one knee inside the cramped carraige. I of course said yes! and here we are today!!
Now, I would say that Mr. Rockville and I are a pretty...unconventional...couple. We got engaged at 19, and we PLANNED on getting married June 20th, 2009 (yes, 2 days from now). However, one year ago we were blessed with a beautiful baby boy, so our wedding was pushed back to July 10, 2010. Yeah, we did things out of order, but I wouldn't have it any other way! At this point NOTHING has been accomplished except for extensive research, so I'm looking forward to sharing all of my struggles and decisions in this blog!
