He surprised me when I came home from work and proposed in the house that we will share together once we are married. He absolutely blew me away!
We have been together over 5 years (Christian did the math of how many days we have been together and of course I forgot the number after 1,500) and I can't imagine anything better than spending the next 50+ years with my best friend.
The timing is perfect for us and after several conversations about marriage and even a little book club between the two of us...we just knew that this was it. I feel so blessed.
Christian designed the ring himself and I am just blown away. It's perfection and beyond!!! I love letting him show me all the details and reasons he chose for this particular part to look like this and so on.
I couldn't have come up with anything more fabulous. I stare at it everyday, I just adore it!
Thank you to all of you who called, left voicemails, e-mailed, texted, tweeted, facebooked and of course those who helped us celebrate Friday night!! I am on cloud 9 and more and more excited every minute.
As my future father-in-law told me, now I just need one of these guys to help me plan this shindig, as I know very little about wedding shenanigans...or is that what I have my bff Jeremy for?
PS -- And welcome welcome WELCOME to those of you who have wandered over here from SkinnyRunner!! I'm so appreciative that you have come over to visit CBL and hope this in-your-face engagement post isn't an overload...I promise this is not the usual content of CBL -- tomorrow the blog content will go on per usual!!
