breaking news

I never thought the day would come when I would post an entry such as this one, but guess what?


It’s been a whopping three days now since the blessed event and I feel…well…pretty much the same! I know that sounds a little unenthused, but let me explain:

I think everyone has a tendency to picture the way they think their life is going to go. When i was little, I pictured what it was going to be like to have a boyfriend; Last year, I pictured what it was going to be like when Rob got home from Switzerland in the fall; Recently, I pictured what it was going to be like when I got engaged; and you know what? Nothing is ever like I picture! I think the thing I love the most about my relationship with Rob is that it has all come so naturally. And when he was down on one knee holding the most stunning ring I have ever seen in my life, it felt like the most normal situation in the world. And by normal I also mean best, happiest, most perfect, moment in the world.

I've always been a little anti post-a-picture-of-the-ring, but now i understand, haha.

It’s all so surreal. One minute Rob and I are talking about getting married with the world completely clueless to our situation, and the next I’m engaged and the whole world knows it (thank you facebook). It’s certainly been a strange couple of days, but I mean it when I say I have spent them on cloud 9. I feel so lucky to have found someone who is even more than my match.

March 16th (hole #7 to be exact) was as perfect a day as they come!

So that’s that. I’m engaged.
