At sunset on February 22, 2012, Michael and I privately exchanged vows and (finally) became Mr. and Mrs. We chose to elope for many reasons, the most important being that we wanted our day to be about us, for us.
My zodiac sign, Taurus; the Bull, played a bit of a theme for our special occasion.
We found a beautiful rock that was surrounded by water at Matador beach. There, we told each other what we try to say to each other everyday - how much we love and appreciate the others role in our lives. After our private vows we enjoyed a beautiful sunset that God painted for us personally. I felt a deep sense of belonging and happiness.
We enjoyed our first night as husband and wife in our home, the next morning we had a flight to catch to Barcelona. Keeping with that bull theme, of course. Along with our Catalonian adventures we also headed to Rome to explore and take in our time together, something we dont always get to enjoy fully because of our schedules.
It was a beautiful time and though we didnt have our family and friends with us, we knew they would understand how we chose to go about our love story. Parties and celebrations are coming, oh believe in that. We'll all soon to be able to cheers together and celebrate love.
