I'm Engaged!

If you haven’t heard yet, I just GOT ENGAGED last week! Yes yes y’all!

Thank you all for being so encouraging and excited for us! The responses we’ve gotten is absolutely overwhelming-it’s been non stop messages, facetimes, and celebration meals. Since we have so many friends, internet friends, and family, far and wide, who can’t be in the physical to celebrate with us, we thought it’d be best to update you all in one go!

What started off as a very mundane day became the most exciting, tear filled day of my life. Joe caught me completely off guard and disguising it with a ‘dog walk’. I was in such complete utter shock, that I started crying (I’m not normally much of a crier) the ring was on my finger, and I was still asking him if it was ‘for reals?’ lol. Took my mind a couple of minutes to come around to understanding everything that just happened!

AND let me tell you, the ring is absolutely gorgeous, perfect really. It’s so dainty that the photos really don’t do it justice. I wish I could show you all in person! Did I mention that Joe designed it himself?

We then attempted to take photos of ourselves using the 10 sec timer, and that why we’ve surprisingly managed to somehow capture the whole event and stringed it together in a little stop motion. Also thanks to my Instagram photo taken habits, I unknowingly documented the whole thing!

OH-MA-GAH I can still barely believe it.

I am the most blessed to be spending the rest of my life with my best friend, boyfriend, and now fiancé. For reals!

x. soon to be Mrs. Stratford!
