Life Update - I'm Engaged! My Ring, Aurora & Cookies!

Hey, everyone!  I know, I know, LONG time no post!  It's been a hot minute since by last post in January and I've got some major life updates to share :) 

First off, I'm ENGAGED!!  My best friend and other half proposed on January 26th, 2018 :)  Paul and I've been together for over 7 years and I can't wait to make things official.  We decided to keep things secret (except to our immediate family) until my ring was ready.  We had several issues at the jeweler (that's a whole different story!) that resulted in them making my ring 3 TIMES and took an additional 4 weeks to arrive.  Finally in mid March I was able to share the news!  No more hush hush over here!

Like any proud (and nutty!) dog mom, I had to recreate one of those adorable dog engagement photos that are floating all around Pinterest.  Here was my attempt :)  Aurora was a willing participant.. especially with her cookies involved!  

Aren't these cookies so cute?  They were a gift from the jeweler after we picked up my ring.  I've never had a cookie with my name on it!  They were delicious.

I'm so excited to plan our tiny winter wedding :)  Paul and I are planning a cozy and simple wedding in Michigan.  Our head count will be less than 20 and we recently booked our venue.

  I also found my dress in February when one of my closest friends was in town (thanks Janine!!) and it's absolutely PERFECT.  I was pretty nervous going in because I'm not a dress person and not a fan of white, but in the end, I fell in LOVE with the second dress I tried on.  It's a stunning ballgown with a white lacy bust and textured champagne skirt.. I adore it.  I'm not sharing photos of it yet, but don't worry I will after the wedding!

The wedding is less than 8 months away and I'm pretty happy with the place we're at.  As far as I'm concerned, the most important parts of a wedding are the ring, dress, venue and of course, your best friend to say "I do" with and those are done. :)  Check, check, check and a huge check!

I want to order invitations next and would love to support an artist on Etsy.  If you know anyone that creates wedding invites, please let me know.

Any wedding posts you guys would be interested in?  Leave any requests below.

When I can, I have more blog posts coming soon.  I have some tea reviews, favorites and declutter posts to share.

I hope you enjoyed!  Feel free to follow my site for future posts.  As always, thanks for stopping by :)  Have a great day and talk with you soon!

Lots of Love,
