I have exciting news…

Waiting & waiting & waiting…..

It finally happened!

He liked it, so he put a ring on it…



AJ and I, where to begin?

I have loved this man for 1,688 days. May 2012 was the start of it all, and if you would have asked me if I thought I would be engaged four and a half years later I probably would have made one of my faces and said hell no. If you would have asked me two years ago if I would be engaged by now I would have probably said, well I hope so. If you would have asked me a year ago if I would be engaged by now I would have yelled I BETTER BE.

So here we are, four years and almost 8 months laterΒ and I am feeling every emotion possible. It’s all starting to sink in, I am getting married. Not only that, I’m making a promise, a partnership, I’m making a life with the love of mine. My very best friend.


AJ isn’t a romantic man by any means, but I see everything I need to see through his actionsΒ and his heart. He might not be a flowers and sentimental type of man but he is a strong, fierce loving soul and I know when he does something, he puts his whole heart into it. I could tell by the way he proposed, just the two of us Christmas Eve morning. I could tell by the way he took every minute he could to catch a glimpse of that ring on my finger and steal a small glance my way all weekend.

I have never been so excited about anything in my life! We felt soΒ overjoyed with the reactions from our family and friends. There were a lot of “FINALLY” moments going on and it all made me smile. We feel accepted, proud and most of all loved.


Now it’s time for the fun part, PLANNING! I already started a Pinterest board, yes I know. I bought a wedding planning book and am ready to go! So expect lots of exciting wedding posts in addition to all my other fun blog posts because I will be DIYing like crazy :).

Thanks so much for listening to my excitement! I love sharing the news,
