I am a country girl at heart marrying my farmer fiancé. We met in school after I left my province to go to school for agriculture. Farming has always been my passion even though we didn't live on a big farm. I have been dreaming of my wedding from a young age and can definitely see myself getting married to my man. Fun fact: I am tall and told myself I was never dating anyone shorter than me. Well you guessed it, my fiancé is shorter than me! But honestly I do not mind. I can't wait for our wedding to happen and we are officially a married couple!
