We’re Engaged!

24 Jul

As I mentioned before, I have some very exciting news to share! Image

That’s right, Mike and I are engaged! After dating for close to three and a half years I am overjoyed to say that Mike is now my fiancé. He’s stuck with me from here on out 😉 The proposal took place on Sunday morning, and it was the best way to end an already amazing birthday weekend. And now for the story…

Mike, my sister, and my dad had plans to play golf Sunday morning so everyone was up a little early. When I woke up there was a little while before the golfers had to head out so I asked Mike if he wanted to take Chipper on a walk with me. We headed out for our walk and I was being super childish insisting that I hold the dog leash. Control issues, I know. About half way through our walk Mike took the leash from my hand and told me to let him hold it. He then took the ring out of his pocket and told me I could hold on to that. Imagine my shock! He then proceeded to get down on his knee and ask me to marry him. I, of course, said yes! Everything about this day was perfect. I’m so excited to marry my best friend.

This is a picture from later that afternoon, our first picture as an engaged couple. The rest of Sunday was filled with the excitement of calling our families and closest friends to tell them the news.

No major planning has happened yet. We are just trying to enjoy this time as a newly engaged couple. My mom did buy me some new reading material and I love looking through these magazines for ideas. We are thinking Fall 2014 for the wedding, so we have quite a bit of time to plan. Whatever we decide for the wedding, I know it will be the best day ever because I will have the best man ever right by my side.
