I'm Engaged!


So there was a little detail missing from my last post, where I shared photos from (and talked about) my trip to California with D.: We got engaged on the beach at night when we were in Santa Barbara! (I wanted to wait to announce it on the blog until all of my family and close friends had heard the news.) It was perfect, we had such a great day together leading up to the proposal, riding our cruiser bikes around Santa Barbara and Montecito, spending time at the beautiful beach, walking around Stearns Wharf hand in hand, eating delicious, healthy meals and watching schools of adorable seals swim around in the ocean. I had a feeling D. was going to propose on our trip (we've been together for over seven years!) and was thrilled it happened in California, which is probably my favorite place in the world. We never went ring shopping together, he picked out my ring on his own and it's exactly what I wanted - something simple, timeless and elegant that would look good on my long, skinny, alien fingers ; ). (They're a size 4.5!) We don't have a date set yet and we haven't even started planning anything, it kind of seems overwhelming right now to be honest with you, I don't even know where to begin, we just want to enjoy being engaged for awhile and savor this very special time in our lives. However, I do have my sights set on a dress already ; ). But of course.

I hope you're all having a great week so far!
