One Year Until Mr & Mrs!

 In exactly one year from today, Christian and I will be saying I do! Thinking about being on a beautiful Mexican beach surrounding by our friends and family for a few days makes me so emotional...not to mention we'll become husband & wife! I can hardly wait :). It will also be Dia de los Muertos in Mexico, which can only mean one super colorful celebration. 

One of the best things about blogging (which I never anticipated!) has been making friends along the way. Liz has been one of those people. After contacting her about her photography nearly a year ago, I quickly became part of a group of expat girlfriends in Amsterdam. These girls have been a great support system for me this year and have really showed me that laughter is the best medicine. I smile as I type this :).

A couple months ago, Liz snapped some amazing pictures of Christian and I around Amsterdam. It was such a fun afternoon and I can say, without a doubt, that she captured exactly who we are on camera. Christian tends to be a bit shy around new friends, but Liz definitely took charge and we both laughed and felt so at ease. Plus Liz taught Christian a few new words like 'smooch' - Christian picks up new English words like a 5-year-old ;). Haha! 

I'm so obsessed with every single one of the pics she took! I honestly couldn't imagine anything better for our engagement pics. I could never thank you enough, Liz! 

Catch her here (although I'm sure most of you have seen it!) and see her photography blog here. I hope she'll be celebrating with us on the beach next year too!
