It feels so surreal to type. So surreal to say. I’m going to marry the love of my life!!!
I am so, so incredibly happy.
This may come as a surprise for those of you who know me a little bit. Because I really never had any intention of getting married. Last June, when gay marriage was made legal throughout the US, my thoughts really began to change. Now that marriage meant LOVE, I was kinda down for it. I am thrilled that I became so open minded about it, because spending the rest of my life with the love of my life is the icing on the cake on this dream called Life. He has been so supportive, so amazing. He makes me a better version of myself and has never wavered in his love for a moment. He really gets me.
The proposal really drove it home.
He recited my favorite poem – line by line. Memorized (it’s a loooong poem). And then he proposed at the Self Realization Fellowship Meditation Gardens, overlooking the beach.
It could not have been more perfect.
I was totally shocked.
Being a type A Virgo, it takes a loooot of effort to surprise me. But he pulled it off (another reason I know he’s the one!)
And I’ve been walking around on cloud 11 ever since.
We told family and some select friends (mostly people who will be at the big day!) and then I gave myself a lovely little while to marinate in it.
This has already been a BIG month, so sorry if I’ve been a little loopy lately… NOW you know WHY!!!
I am so excited to share this news with you, my tribe!! We are working on so many incredible things together. I am so proud of him and of us. I feel honored to be his and I am so excited to be a MRS!!!
Can we just talk about the ring for a minute?
In high school, my best friend once told me that my future husband would design my wedding ring. At the time, I shook my head and laughed it off. But I’ve never forgotten that.
This ring? A gemstone, naturally. It’s ethical, fair trade, sapphire (both of our birthstones!) hand cut into a perfect heart and surrounded by reclaimed (no mining involved!) diamonds. And it was designed by him.
And it’s goooorgeous! I can’t stop staring at it.
It’s perfect. He’s perfect. Life is perfect. I am so, so happy!!! I’m gonna burst at the seams!!!!
Stay tuned for more love, updates and adventures!
