Update: Here’s our engagement story: Part 1

Guess what, you guys?! 
I’m gonna marry that hottie! My best friend. My passport-filling partner in crime. My fiancé
This happened last weekend, and I’m terrible at keeping big, happy secrets, but I had all these other blog posts scheduled, so I managed to stay strong until the big reveal… Wanna see the ring?

This thing has been on my finger for a week now, and I still can’t stop staring at it. Checking to make sure it’s still there. Smiling. He picked it out 100% himself – not a work of input from me, and I couldn’t possibly be happier with it. 
And I coincidentally managed to have pretty nails (thank you, gel polish!), which only worked wonders to fuel my amateur photogging of my own left hand. Repeatedly. Who knew engagement rings were such elusive, camera-shy creatures?! ;D
Oh, and you know this calls for a wedding-themed Pinterest board, right? Yeah. Done. 

One day soon, when I’ve gotten all my ducks a couple ducks in a row, I’ll share our engagement story and some of the wonderful pictures I have from it.
