So, I'm engaged

Yep, M proposed to me Monday! It wasn't totally unexpected since I knew he had the ring but it was thrilling and amazing anyway! I despise being the center of attention so he made sure to pop the question when it was just the two of us. We were standing in front of the Christmas tree, talking about the ornaments, when he got down on one knee and told me such sweet things and asked me to marry him. I cried, of course, and covered him in kisses before texting my family and close friends! The ring is just beautiful and I love looking at it...ha!

I will never forget the look in his eyes as he was proposing, the memory of his expression will always make my heart flutter when I think back on it all. I just love this man so much! I was so afraid and hesitant to do the whole engagement thing but obviously my feelings changed. A few months ago I just really let go of my fears and embraced what I feel I've been lucky enough to be given. And I have to say that so far, I've been really happy to be his fiancee!

It's been a very emotional week. Tuesday, my sister's preeclampsia worsened and she delivered my nephew at 29 weeks and 5 days. Baby R weighed in at 2lbs, 14 oz and is 15 inches long. He is doing very well and is just the cutest little thing! He has a long road ahead but we are optimistic. My sister is doing well too but we were all terrified there for a bit. Please send out some good thoughts/vibes/prayers for them both!

So, it's been quite the week! An engagement and a new nephew, how lucky am I?!
