still on cloud nine.

i really have not meant
to keep everyone in suspense.

i'm looking forward to posting pictures of the most gorgeous ring i have ever seen
and to write about the most perfect engagement story ever!
it was all so amazing. i'm still in shock that it happened.
since it took place saturday night, we spent most of the evening calling family and close friends. and then sunday was mostly filled with continued relishing in our engagement, as well as more conversations with friends. we even had some fun grabbing wedding magazines and travel books from shelves of Borders, envisioing and laughing and talking wedding plans.

it's so fun to dream.

and today was monday, so reality hit in terms of needing to head to work. work was insanely busy, then i ran to our first session of marriage counseling (crazy right?! we are moving with it rather quickly cuz our mentors are here in Chicago and we leave in 24 days - yikes!). after that, i had a dental appointment that i scheduled for 6 months ago, a handful of errands and some etsy orders to fulfill. oh and the room is defintely a wreck, clothes and stuff just everywhere.

though i admit, it wasn't as hard to get up this morning for some reason. it was also was fun to tell the engagement story and to show off the ring.
(i lovelovelove my ring!).

so standy-by, friends!

the engagement story to come.
pictures of the ring.
AND of course, gonna have to do some wedding planning posts.
(still crossing my fingers for a wedding dress with pockets!)

oh, and thanks so all the lovely comments here on the blog.
each of them made me so happy!
i feel so loved and thankful for you all.
thanks for sharing in our joy!
