Well, if you haven't heard it yet, you've come to the right place... I'm engaged!

Last night Harbor asked me to marry him. The last 24 hours have been one big whirlwind of surprise visits from out-of-town friends, an explosion of comments and texts and "likes" from those I'm separated from by miles and continents, wonderful phonecalls and Skype dates, hundreds of hugs and kisses, and the first sweet whispers of the word fiancé

Want to see my pretty ring? Harbor picked it out all by himself. 

It's all pretty dreamy. Plus it was a total surprise (and I'm really hard to surprise!).

Tonight when I was folding laundry and cleaning the litter box, I couldn't stop looking at my hand. Yes, it's true. Being engaged makes even the most tedious of tasks more glamourous.



  1. I'm still really excited for you. Even though I haven't meet Harbor, I have read and seen pictures of you two together. From what I've seen it seems like he makes you REALLY happy. Congrats again!!!!!

  2. I was, and am that same way! I love looking down and seeing such a pretty ring. Congratulations, wedding planning is SO fun! You too are dreamy.

  3. Congratulations!
    I felt the same way the first few times, actually every time I say fiancé I still get the butterflies and lovely feeling and looking at the ring never gets old, it really feels like a symbol of their love that they spent time searching and planning to ask you to spend your life with them and doing it all hidden so they can surprise you.
    I wish you both the best,
    Happy Wedding planning!!

  4. big YAY! congrats on your engagement! I totally agree, planning a wedding is so much fun! all the best! :-)


  5. congratulations! it's so fun that it was a complete surprise too!
