Dear Blogging Friends,
It gives me so much joy and excitement to share this news with you. I am engaged!
Sam popped the question on Saturday the 25th April 2015... producing that little black box with a gorgeous ring nestled into the cushioning inside.
It was the biggest shock and I didn't see it coming at all - but now that I've had a chance to get used to the idea... I am thrilled.
Since last week Saturday when my entire life changed forever - I have been having the most incredible dreams about weddings.
If anyone has any recommendations or quirky ideas PLEASE feel free to share them.
Obviously I'd like to keep a lot of the wedding as a surprise but I can tell you that the date has been set and we have decided on a forest wedding. Very bohemian (of course!).
We've had an engagement photo-shoot and are in the midst of planning our engagement party... all the while I'm sitting with pages upon pages of AWESOME wedding ideas, venues, decor, DRESSES.....
It's so exciting I could quite literally pop.
I truly never thought that this day would happen for me.
I've always wanted it... the white dress, the big day, the Happily Ever After.... but I've always been scared of it too. I was so badly hurt in the past that I didn't trust love and commitment. Not for a second. I always ran away and mucked things up for myself because I really didn't know what I wanted or if I could be the woman someone needed me to be.... but, I know now that I can be all of that and all I can say is this:
2015 is definitely my year. We're not even half way through yet and already so much has happened:
I'm just really, really happy right now. It's been such a whirlwind and so unexpected - but I am truly happy.
Finally, the girl that always ran away from love and happiness is finally embracing it.
