328 days to go...

Welcome to our blog! :-)

Most of you know us, but may not know our story... so here it is... 

John and I actually met in high school, GHS, yeah! We dated, were friends, went our own ways. 10 years later he ran into one of my best friends (yeahh Onaliese!) in Maine, she got us in touch and after one weekend I knew who I wanted to be with the rest of my life...

How we got engaged:

At the Mason Jennings/Jack Johnson concert... so, on the way to the concert while John was in the restroom, I accidentally stumbled across a ring box in his back pack. I freaked out when he got back to the car and told him "I saw the box!" (nervous, excited, and confused). He laughed and showed me the box was empty and that he just had bought a pretty box for when he got  "a ring". So, after seeing the empty box, I bought it. I started laughing and telling him that I can't believe I thought he was going to propose and when he did, never do it in public... OOPS! Later during the concert in front of the entire crowd, he got down on one knee, said all that sweet mushy stuff, and pulled out the most beautiful diamond ring, tied around his neck by a satin ribbon (ah, that's why the box was empty!). He put the ring on my finger asked- AND I SAID YES!!!!

PLANNING...
So, the most important things are taken care... got the dress, caterer www.lacuisine.net , photographer www.EthanAlfredStudios.com , and the band!!!!!!! www.jdallstarband.com ... they are awesome!!! You can see the trombonist here: www.ca.youtube/watch?v=vOHimEj-84c ,who made the top 40 of America's Got Talent... who knows where he'll be in a year though (hopefully at our Wedding)... 

So, only 2 days later I fell, cut my hand on glass (of course the left hand), cutting 4 nerves and a tendon... things were stalled for a bit, and I FINALLY just got the ring sized to wear on my left hand (I had to wear it on the right due to the injury). 

Well, with 328 days to go, I still have a lot to do!

Hi, my name is Leire.
I'm a Courtney spanish friend and now, I can say John's too (I know why you're so in love Courtney... he made me cry when he told me all the ring story)
I just want to say I'm really happy for you guys, you know it, and also that I have faith in your love, cause you know, nowadays is crazy... but what you have... is true love.

Congratulations, again... I just can't wait to go visit you for your wedding.

I love you both!!!
