Time to Reflect!

Antonio and I are coming upon our first anniversary of the day we met, and the day we went out on our first date.  What better time to reflect on the past AMAZING year. 
We met Sunday, July 18th.  It's a day I won't ever forget because it was the day after my mom's 50th surprise birthday party that had me exhausted.  I went to my church (Refuge Temple Church) as I do every Sunday.  I'll admit,  I thought I looked pretty cute that day, but never expected to meet my future husband.  I sang in the choir, and service went on as usual.  After service, I had a meeting so I remained in the church sanctuary.  Meanwhile, outside the church a young man from Goldsboro, NC talked with a distant cousin of his.  It was during that conversation that he would ask her who was the girl in the cream and brown suit.  He also expressed interest in wanting to speak with me before he left to return home.  His cousin came inside the church to get me.  She brought me outside the church, and introduced the two of us, and as quickly as that all had happened, she disappeared.  This young man, who I would later find out was named Antonio, took complete control of the situation and began talking to me, and the rest is history.
I never thought that this meeting would lead me to where I am today.  Over the past year, I've found my absolute BEST FRIEND in the world.  We talk to each other, support each other, and love each other very much.  There have been many events and occasions that we've shared just in this short amount of time.  The one that is most dear to me was being able to spend a major holiday with he and his family.   I've also attached so pictures of us and our prize winning gingerbread houses. 

There were surprises such as my birthday, and THE ENGAGEMENT.  There have been ups and downs, but I am convinced that it's all been worth it.  I look forward the the rest of our lives together!

Trying something new!

My name is Sherita, and I'm super excited to be starting my very first blog.  I was inspired to do so by the many blogs of friends and family.  I've secretly wanted to start one for a while, but felt there wasn't enough going on in my life to keep people interested.  All of that is changing... hence the name of my blog.
I AM GETTING MARRIED in exactly 51 days.  I'm very excited and overwhelmed at the same time.  I hope to keep everyone updated throughout this process, as well as our adventures as a newly married couple. 
Let me start by introducing you to my fiance, Antonio.  Great guy, and I love him SOOOO MUCH!
And beside him, that's me Sherita.  We are set to be married Aug 13, 2011.
