i know, i suck. so sue me...

holy-whirlwind of a life. ready go.
i suck at blogging lately.
i got engaged sunday. we were on a walk down by the river near our home and he asked on the walk back to the car. it was perfect, unconventional, and totally us. wow...i love him.

(idk why it looks so huge in the photo-but it is delicate and the perfect size)

my ring is gorgeous. it is EXACTLY everything that is me and that i could have asked for. i think diamonds are so over rated and scary to wear. this delicious citrine quartz is more me then any diamond.
the big day is set for august 27, 2011 and planning is in full swing! i am seriously afraid of the instant 'wedding brain' that over came me the minute i woke up the next day. does it ever shut off? i might go nuts if i am this nuptial-y narcotic for the next 7.5 months!
the good news it, that the busy brain is leading to a lot of stuff getting done already! i ordered my dress, got started on my order for save the date + invitations, semi picked out bridal party attire, and pretty much planned all the rest out in my head and on scratch paper.
i will try and fill you all in on the details as they come up, but without giving it all away--some family reads this blog and i want it to be a semi surprise to them.
so, that being said...some little details: colors peacock blue + sunflower yellow, outside/backyard wedding, vintage farm style, diy to the max, bbq spread, suspenders and cowboy boots.

congratulations!!! i know you have no clue who i am, but i'm a new-ish reader and i've commented a few times. actually, i've been reading for a long time but only recently commented. ANYWAY, that's not important because hello??? YOU ARE A FIANCE! And that ring is stunning and unique, and that's what i wanted in my ring, too. seriously beautiful. i hope the planning goes smoothly, as it seems it already is. how exciting for you!!!
