big news from charleston!!

I couldn't be more happy..... why you ask? Because...
Guy and I are ENGAGED!!!!!!

Whether you want it or not, you're getting the story. Here we go...
Yesterday I was getting in my car for work and I noticed a note on my dashboard. Guy had left a note telling me to meet him at Smythe Park at 7p. I thought it was really sweet but didn't think more of it because he does sweet things for me often. Plus, he had been totally normal that morning and day.
So the day continues on as normal and I leave with Margo for our volunteer event from 5-7p. That went well and we headed back to Daniel Island so I could meet Guy at the park.
When I got to the park I saw he was set up for a picnic and waiting for me. I was immediately happy to be with someone who would go through the trouble to do this on a random Wednesday night... but had no clue what was about to happen.

{me walking to meet Guy}
Guy was smart enough to ask our dear friend Margaret to take pictures. I'm so glad he did and especially thankful that Margaret & Erik were willing to give up their summer evening to support us.

{G&I... at what I thought was just a picnic in the park}

We ate cheese and bread, drank wine, and just chat about random events from our day. Guy was checking his phone a lot but I thought he was reading work emails and didn't think too much about it. What I didn't know was he was waiting until 7:30p so Marg could snap some photos.

I got distracted by a plane in the sky and when I turned around Guy was on his knee proposing. I know it's hard to see in the photo but we're both on our knees, I'm crying, and he's saying really sweet things that I can't remember! I remember some, but not all. I was so happy & surprised!

{post engagement, when Guy told me Marg & Erik were in the park taking pictures!}

{I've never been happier than in this moment}

Marg & Erik brought us beautiful antique champagne glasses and we popped a bottle of bubbly and celebrated our engagement!!

Friends, I couldn't be happier. My cheeks hurt from smiling since 7:30p last night. I've never smiled or laughed this much in my life. I feel blessed that Guy chose me to spend the rest of his life with.  


{don't you wish you could have a head's up on an engagement so you could do something with your hair, put a little make up on, and be picture ready? Ha!}
I can't do an engagement post without a picture of the ring! Please excuse my nails.... I've never wished I had nicer nails more. :)
{my man did good!}

So there it is! I'm so happy and can't stop smiling. Thanks for reading and celebrating with me!
xoxo

And you looked absolutely beautiful. No advance warning needed for you- you always look fabulous.

So, so, so, so excited! I promise to get over my stupid flying phobia and get on a plane for your wedding :)
