Adam and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary of dating in May of 2012 with a road trip to Southern Minnesota. Our destination was a friends college graduation party, but we made it a trip to remember with several fun stops (Nelson's Creamery was our favorite).

Adam started his first year of dental school at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in August of 2012! I am so proud of him and how hard he worked for this. I will always remember the long nights of studying for the DAT entrance exam, lengthy applications and him traveling all over the country for different school interviews. It is a four year program, so he will graduate in May of 2016. It was such a blessing that he was accepted to this school- as it meant that we are able to stay close to family and friends! I started a new job at Ellex Medical in Eden Prairie as a Service Coordinator that August. I also bought my first car, a Prius!

August 17th, 2013 was the best day of our lives. It was mid-70's with a strong breeze, no clouds and most importantly...NO RAIN! That was a huge answered prayer with having an outdoor wedding. People always said to savor the day, because it goes by so quickly. Boy, were they right or what! The day started off with us girls driving to Hair Success in Fargo from Detroit Lakes to get our hair done. We then split up and my sister, mom and myself went to get makeup done at Adae Salon and the others went back to the cabin to get ready. Lots of pictures, tears and laughter later and we were officially Adam and Courtni Erickson. The night was spent dancing under the stars with everyone we loved and soaking in all we could of this amazing day! There were hiccups and things in hindsight I would have ideally liked to change, but it was still the most perfect day in my opinion. There was so much laughter, love and an undeniable peace surrounding this next adventure we were taking together. I love Adam more than I'll even be able to put into words. God sure knew what he was doing when crossing our paths, because I can't imagine a more perfect match. He completes me in every way and I am so honored to be his wife. Okay, before the tears start...I'll start uploading some pictures! ;)
