I'm gettin' married!

Well I must say I had quite the weekend! I officially gained a new title to add to my resumé- fiancé ;)!

I will admit I have nothing truly "educational" to share in this post. But I just had to share the exciting news with you all as I consider you to be friends and my blog family!

So here goes...our romantic lil' story- the short and sweet version!

On Sunday, Ryan suggested we go for a walk and picnic in the park in one of our favorite little towns. He wanted to lay our blanket down near a fountain that we love and have spent some time at in the past when we have visited! 

Before lunch, he insisted we head over to the fountain for a moment to take it in. When we got there, he took my hands, shared some amazingly, loving words, and got down on one knee!

He even had a beautiful bouquet of roses laying on one of the benches near the fountain for me!

After the excitement and display of emotions, we decided to head back to our blanket to celebrate with the picnic we had packed! A few minutes into our picnic, we received a text with a photo from one of my best friends and my parents. They had been hiding in a group of bushes right near the fountain! They heard and saw the whole thing! It was so amazing to have friends and family there to share the moment with us as well! The best part is my friend is a photographer, and Ry had her come to take photos of the whole thing for us to have! 

Thought I'd share a few with you!

She seriously documented from beginning to end...check out this stalker photo of us heading into the park!


Ry sharing the sweetest things ever! 


On the knee...


The happy couple...:)

Oh...and of course...my beautiful new bling! He gets all the credit for this one. My man's got good taste! (Don't mind my half chipping nails...ugh!)

Now let the planning commence! Anyone care to share some tips and tricks you have learned along the way! I would love any and all advice you'd care to share!

Thanks for sharing my special day with me!
