So many titles ran through my mind as I started composing this post. Eye Heart Yellow, No More Thoughts on Dating, Out of the Funk,
Hell Yes... But then I noticed that it will be post 100, so I just went with that.
official engagement photo; don't you love my outfit?
Brett and I are engaged! Saturday morning he marched me up Stone Mountain at sunrise and asked me to marry him. It was very sweet and special, with a whole cast of characters all its own (the 90 person bootcamp squad, complete with mega phone, the 3 dudes hiking behind us that looked like they were straight out of Dazed and Confused and hadn't gone to bed yet). I love the symbolism of going up the mountain in one state of being and coming down transformed. And I love that he incorporated one of our favorite activities into the purposal.
It was so us.
the DAzeD aNd coNfuSed dudes are on my shoulder
And now some details, the good part, stuff I know you want to know but are too polite to ask :)
why is it so hard to photograph those suckers?
Beautiful ring, cushion cut canary diamond, halo setting. Tentative plans for a Novemberish wedding in Atlanta, very small, close friends, immediate family. No, we're not planning on having kids any time soon (you guys were right, people do get very nosy).
This has been such a fun time so far! People have been so wonderful, I have gotten so many nice calls and emails and hugs. I feel so lucky to have met Brett and I can't believe this is happening. Maybe 2009 will be as good as 2008 after all :)
