That time I got engaged.

Well, it's safe to say I'm on cloud 9! 
Actually is there a cloud 10? 11? 79? Because it feels like I just might be there.

On Friday, Peter asked me to be his wife!
I guess after 8 years he decided he liked it, because he put a ring on it - the most beautiful ring I've ever seen! That might explain why I can't stop staring at my hand...
hello, my precious.
He did good. I catch a glimpse of it on my finger every now and then - my heart skips a beat - and I still can't grasp that he chose me, and I get to spend forever with the most perfect man for me. Oh my gosh, I'm such a sap right now!

I really still can't put into words how I'm feeling - it all still seems so surreal. I knew that this day would eventually be coming, but he really caught me off guard when I was least expecting it (on a weekend we were supposed to paint our townhouse) and completely surprised me - which I was informed was "what he was going for". Nailed it, babe.

I'm still in a constant state of bliss - I hope this never goes away. I've never felt happier. Everyone tells me that I'm glowing and I don't find that hard to believe. I'm just so looking forward to this exciting time in our lives.
I'll be back tomorrow with the proposal story & some pictures - because as you can see, today I'm just still all over the place with happiness and emotion! Not that I won't still be tomorrow...

Warning - this new shiny thing on my hand has turned me into a selfie taking machine. 
You'll see what I mean tomorrow.
