Sooo...do you guys remember me telling you about my awesome boyfriend? Well, I am pleased to announce that we are now engaged! He took me on a hike this weekend and asked me to marry him. And I said yes (after spouting out, "oh, my goodness!" about five times -- I was totally surprised even though I knew it was coming at some point).
The picture is from our hike (yes, he proposed at the top of a mountain). The hike was full of adventures. Mysterious fog. Steep climbs. Bears (yep, that's a great story). Sunlight beaming down through the clouds. Pretty cool stuff.
I'm not sure how normal people feel when they get engaged; but for me there is a huge churning of emotions, and my insides kind of resemble a washing machine.
I told my future-father-in-law that I was really excited and really happy and...just...a...little...bit...terrified.
He laughed and said he was pretty sure that was normal. And then my future-mother-in-law told me about how scared she was when she got married.
It's just kind of crazy to go from being-single-with-no-prospects-in-sight to having-an-awesome-boyfriend-whom-you-love to actually-realizing-you-are-about-to-get-married-and-change-your-life-forever.
But it's a good crazy.
So that's my announcement for the week. And I hope you guys have a great day!
