What a difference one year makes...

One year ago to the day,
my sisters and I are were in the windy city...

We met up with a group of fun people for a photography workshop.

And it was on April 23, 2011
that I officially met Jack McDonnell.

It was a fun filled day and one that 
I know I will never forget.

I enjoyed taking pictures of one of my favorite places

But, even more so I was happy to get to know Jack better...

If you would have told me on April 23, 2011 that in just one year I would be
dating and in love with this fellow photographer, I would have shook
my head in unbelief, but inside I would have been absolutely thrilled.

One year has brought changes and it completely amazes
what God can do when we are surrendered to his will.

Once in awhile in the middle of an ordinary life 
God gives us a fairy tale.

So glad to have spent the last year with someone like Jack-
looking forward to creating many  more memories with him!
