Just a few shots from our engagement/housewarming party over the weekend! My plan was to take all sorts of pictures but I failed on that front. Figured it was more important to visit with guests vs. taking their pictures. I did manage these few shots in between the two parties. Enjoy!
Oh man, such a good day yesterday! TWO engagement parties – family in the afternoon and friends at night. So great to see everyone and show off our new home. I think I talked for 12 hours straight! Trying to polish off the keg and get a lil R & R today. Party problems, right?
Thanks to everyone that came out – we really appreciate your support during this special time. A special thanks to my sis who coordinated the fab food and decor and my fam for pitching in too. I think we’ll be eating leftovers for days! Pics coming soon of the party….until then, save the date 🙂
So the BF and I have been dating for 7 years, yes, that’s 7 years people! Not 7 months, not 7 weeks, 7 YEARS. Though if I think back on our time together, it really doesn’t feel that long – I take that as a sign that we were meant to be 🙂 Last Saturday evening, he sweetly got down on one knee after dinner on Alki Beach and asked me to marry him with THE MOST gorg ring. Swoon. I must say, I’m the Queen of Patience, but he was worth the wait. (and of course, I said yes! among lots of tears….)
We began dating after he graduated from college. He was a bit wary of me at first, but I was relentless and soon we were exclusive. We spend a good part of our mid and late twenties together – him eventually starting his own business, me buying a condo, a scary/mysterious dog illness, trips to Mexico, trips to Panama, Sonics games, endless concerts, most recently buying a new home in Seattle……so many lovely, lovely memories with this man.
He’s the smartest, handsomest, most hardworking and passionate person I know. Did I also mention that he grows the most redonk beard in the 206 area code? Men are seriously jealous of his facial hair! I am beyond exciting to share this next chapter with him- celebrating our love, making new memories and one day building a family together.
Stay tuned for our fall 2014 wedding here in good ole Seatown!
