I love weddings. A lot. I love the flowers, the cakes, the dresses, the hair, the ribbons, the tulle. I love it all. But, this is turning out to be a little problem for me in planning my own wedding.
I've been planning a wedding for the last few years and have a lot of ideas, but trying to narrow down the choices is getting pretty hard.
So far, we've chosen a date, colours, flowers and a general cake design. Also, we have chosen the food and dessert. But, the centrepieces are still a mystery to me, and I'm still not sure about bridesmaids dresses or my dress. I have found many things that I like, but I'm finding it hard to incorporate all that I love into this wedding. Also, trying to find things that work for both Chris and I is hard. But, he's being a really good sport and letting me make a lot of the final decisions. I sure love that man!

The Luckiest

Happy belated St. Patrick's day, y'all! I hope it brought some sunshine and luck for all of you!
It certainly did for me! Well, not so much sunshine, but snow and luck.
Yesterday, we had a ward temple trip yesterday. I am so happy that I was able to go to the temple. I always feel completely at home there.
My day would have been complete if I had left the temple with just that amazing feeling. But, it gets better. I left with a beautiful ring given to me by my very best friend, Christopher.
While the snow was blowing around us, Christopher asked me to marry him.
I've know that this would happen for quite some time, and thought I was completely prepared for that moment, but I wasn't. I said yes, but it's still so strange to think that I have a fiancé and I am going to have a husband and be a wife.
I am beyond excited for this next step in my life though, and am so excited to get started on the wedding plans. Well, actually not making the plans, but actually putting them into action. If you know me at all, or follow me on Pinterest, or have seen my stack of Martha Stewart Weddings magazines, then you know that I have been planning this wedding for quite a while.

Just moments before he popped the question.

He took Beyonce's advice and "put a ring on it".
