Lately Around here

You guys! I got engaged this weekend! It was an action packed couple of days that started with a sweet, sweet proposal from my honey. We laughed, we cried, it was just perfect.

For those of you who don’t know, Chris and I were set up about a year and a half ago on a blind date. We were both two very independent souls looking for a match–not to complete us, but to compliment us–and wow, did we find it. It’s been an amazing journey getting to know him and his family, they are kind + loving people and I feel so lucky to be a part of their tribe.  It reminds me that things work out in the end, even when it doesn’t seem to make sense along the way.

Other than that exciting news, we had two other events this weekend: a dinner honoring his dad (Man of the Year!) for the local Chamber of Commerce and a glorious wedding for my friend Lauren and her now husband, John. It was a whirlwind of a couple of days, so I’m going to let the pictures tell the story…
