I know it’s been a long time coming, but here is an official post announcing that I AM ENGAGED! Man, does that feel good to say. I am officially going to become a Mrs. Pagano :)
Today not only marks exactly 2 months of being engaged to my best friend, but it is also the day that we will be getting married in exactly one year! We have gotten so much wedding planning done in the past few months, and I can’t believe that we can finally start an official countdown. I can already tell that the next 12 months are going to fly by, but that is okay with me because I absolutely cannot wait to marry the love of my life.
This year on Thanksgiving I felt as if I had a lot more to be thankful for than usual. A lot of milestones and life changing events have happened in the last year. Between graduating college, getting an amazing job, and moving out to Colorado with my other half, this year has tested me and brought me so much joy in ways that I never thought possible. The biggest life change that has happened this year was me moving away from everything I have known. Though I have been extremely busy and barely have time to stop and think about how much I miss home, I am always thinking about how much more aware I am that I am one lucky girl to have such amazing family and friends. When you are constantly around the ones you love, you sometimes lose sight of how thankful you are to have them around. You just kind of assume that they will always be there. No matter what.
