Oh yeah, I’m getting married!


Another big thing happened in May, apart from my 25th birthday and Minnesota legalizing Gay Marriage – Alan and I got engaged! Not much of a story, I’m afraid. It was late at night, we’d been at a couple birthday parties that night, and we were talking in the kitchen and Alan stood up, walked over to me, gave me a hug, and asked me to marry him. He didn’t have a ring, and it was a week before going to London, so we decided not to tell anyone until after we got back. That was difficult, as I see my parents everyday because we work together. The ring didn’t come for 4 weeks, but it was totally worth it in my opinion. It’s from This Etsy Shop and I’d had my eye on the ring for a looooong, long time. It’s a clear topaz which is nice and sparkly. I love it.

It’s worth noting too that there is a date – Next May 31, which is also my parents’ anniversary, and it’ll be the most fun thing to plan in the world. I’ve always had an obsession with weddings and event planning, because think of all the crafts and design I get to do! Besides thinking about music, colors, decorations, bridesmaids, and invitations, I had to remind myself that I’m marrying Alan, and I’m pretty excited. That’s an understatement, but I don’t like to get mushy and whenever I’m super earnest about things it makes me gag a little. But, I’m getting married to my best friend, and that’s brilliant.
