The quickening of your heartbeat. The butterflies in your stomach. Tingles running through your body as your hands brush against each other. Nervous, soft breath as you lean in for your first kiss…
A romantic night in with a few glasses of wine. You snuggle on the couch together, feeling so deeply comfortable with one another. Then he whispers, I love you for the first time and your heart feels like it may burst with happiness…
This is it. The moment you've waited your whole life for. The love of your life is down on bended knee, speaking the four little words that will change your life forever.
Sometimes the moments that make us sweat are the most amazing moments of all.
We've partnered with Simply Stylist and Dove to share Dove's new Amazing Moments campaign, featuring the real-life wedding proposal of a darling couple, Louisa and Rob. Dove put their Clinical Protection Antiperspirant to the test during Louisa's romantic proposal to her future husband — can you imagine the nervousness and exhilaration that she must have felt? Luckily, Dove Clinical Protection offers undeniable wetness protection and is made of ¼ moisturizers to care for your skin.

So great, right?
Dove has asked me to share a personal moment from my life that made me sweat, as a part of their Amazing Moments campaign. I met my husband in college, working together at a deli near campus. I thought he was so cute, but he was pretty shy and never ever talked to me at work. I was always incredibly nervous around him, until one night at a coworker's birthday party, when I had a little liquid courage and marched over to him to strike up a conversation. It went something like this:
“I think you're cute.”
Subtle, right? Luckily, he didn't look at me like I was crazy, but instead responded with a sweet and humble, “oh, really?” I proceeded to ask him why he never talked to me at work and he confessed his shyness, as well as the fact that the attraction was mutual. We spent the rest of the evening chatting about everything under the sun. At the end of the night, he walked me back to my apartment door and leaned in for a kiss. Whew! I felt tingly and exhilarated with the possibility of new love brewing, as my heart raced thinking about what the future may hold.

I honestly can't tell you how much just writing this story has taken me back down memory lane. Just thinking about that moment brings me back to those emotions, the nervousness, the butterflies and the giddy excitement.
And the funny part is, I remember feeling the same nervous energy the day we got married. Knowing that we were committing to love each other for the rest of our lives was an emotional and overwhelming feeling. Approaching my husband during our “first look” gave me those same butterflies and giddy excitement that I felt the day I marched over to my love and told him how cute he was. I love these photos from our wedding day:
