I’M ENGAGED!!!! 41

Dear, lovely readers: I am so happy and overjoyed to announce that J and I are engaged! He proposed to me Saturday morning then I proceeded to have the best weekend of my entire life. I am reminded of Pride & Prejudice when Jane Bennet says, “How shall I bear so much happiness!” I feel the same way and simply cannot wait to be J’s wife.

(The above photo is one of the very few without my happy face in it to show off the ring to you all. It is exactly what I have always wanted and I cannot stop staring at it! This was an engagement basket my lovely family put together for me… notice the Sports Illustrated for J.)
