Island Love

Three years ago I was happily working in a trust office, but dreaming of the life I live now. Peter and I were just friends; I never would have believed that I would be living in Guam with him. Although my life may not have gone the way I had planned, everything seems to have turned out better than I could have hoped. I feel so thankful, to not only be living my dream, but to have met such a wonderful person to share it with.


2014 has been one of the best years for me and it all started with what happened in January. One Friday afternoon I received a phone call from my dad, “Antonia! Someone just called me and said you need to go outside right now!” I was worried, but I did as told and there he was! My Peter! He made plans for our afternoon that included lunch on the beach and then a drive to my favorite beach where he proposed! I cried tears of happiness the entire day.

We have been enjoying our time as an engaged couple over the last few months. Recently, we asked one of our photographer friends, Damian Weiler, to take engagement photos of us. We spent the whole day traveling to different locations around the island. I think all of our family and friends know by now, so I thought I’d share one of the first shots from our engagement photo shoot with my blog friends.

We’re ENGAGED!!!
