My News!

I am too excited to think of a witty intro or title... So without further ado,


The bird proposed on Sunday, the 16th! He took me to brunch & massages at Solage in Calistoga, a gorgeous resort in Napa Valley.
He then took me to a private winery and had a picnic prepared for us. We could see for miles, overlooking the ridge & valley.
This is when the bird proposed. It was perfect. I was shocked and felt like the luckiest girl in the world!
After yes's! & tears, the bird told me he also had a surprise trip for us to Puerto Rico to celebrate our Engagement & Anniversary!
We left that night and got back at about midnight on Thursday. It was a gorgeous trip! I will post pictures soon!

{So please excuse my absence last week! And know I've missed you all!}
