I’ve been neglecting my blog yet again, but for real this time hope to get back on track with my regular posts. I do have some pretty exciting news to share too! Ian and I got engaged last week!
I flew home from a great, but exhausting work trip to San Diego Thursday evening. Ian picked me up at the airport with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. He had actually told me he was getting me flowers to welcome me home though, so I didn’t suspect a thing.
We had a whole date night planned after dropping my bags at home, but before we could leave the apartment he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!! I was so excited I could barely get any words out, but of course said YES! He gave me the most beautiful ring that is just perfect for me and a big hug!
After excitedly calling our families – who all had known this was coming for the past week – and posting to Facebook/Twitter to let everyone else know, we decided to bag our initial dinner plans and walked up to Fireworks, one of our favorite spots in Court House. They even gave us some complimentary champagne to celebrate!
It’s more than a week later and I still can’t stop smiling. I could not be more excited and I can’t wait to get to marry the love of my life on October 18, 2014!
Many congratulations to you both. May your lives be filled with love and laugher.
Congrats! I love the date of Oct 18th. (It’s my bday).
That’s great! It’s actually our anniversary. We knew we were thinking a fall wedding, so when we realized the 18th was on a Saturday next year it made it an easy choice!
Thanks so much!
So excited for you. Date is marked on the calendar!
Woo, Thank you!!
