I’ve been totally MIA this summer and I apologize! But, really, I was busy…soaking up the sun, traveling, having drinks on outdoor patios, moving, and most importantly…getting ENGAGED! My boyfriend and the man of my dreams proposed at the end of June, and I will admit it—I spent the summer swept up in the whirlwind and newness of it all and picking out a venue, a photographer, a date, etc. Next, comes the dress! Anyway, now that we have our date – next summer – all picked out, the planning slows down for awhile and I am back with a stylish blogging vengeance.
We had our engagement photos taken last weekend by some dear friends and incredibly talented photographers, Kim and Adam of La Vie Photography. It was such fun – from Molly Moon’s ice cream to Top Pot Donuts and Discovery Park, we had a blast blowing confetti, playing on the beach and eating ice cream. We’re basically big kids.
That tattoo on my fiance’s arm? It’s a tattoo of the monogram of our initials – A and T – that he created for the website he made for me for our engagement (he is a graphic designer). He sent me the link to the website in the morning while I was at work, and completely surprised me. It was filled with photos and stories about our past two years together. I was reading all the stories about us on the site and bawling in my office when my good friend walked in and told me we had to get going—we had a lot to do that day. What followed was a day of pampering arranged by my incredible man—lunch downtown, getting our hair done, getting our nails done—and finally, she presented me with a dress chosen by my fiance and took me to a park where my family and friends were waiting to watch T. propose. It was nothing short of amazing.
I love these photos and they are just the sneak peek! We haven’t even seen the rest and there are tons. I can’t wait!
So glad to be back, lovelies!
