The Proposal

It's been a while, eh?

What's new....what's new....

We're engaged!!!!


Oh, and we moved back to Michigan. It's been a pretty exciting October. :)

What's that? You want to hear the engagement story? Oh, okay, I'll share it. :)

Last weekend, John and I were planning a very Grand Rapids day. We went to lunch at Perrin Brewery (yum). And then planned on going to an orchard for donuts and cider and then heading downtown for a day of fun. Sounds great, right? Right.

So after lunch, we headed to the orchard and fed baby goats. Oh my god, they were adorable. They just nibble out of your hands. Had the day ended there I'd say it was great. But nope, it got better!

We saw that they had a corn maize and set off to find it by walking around and taking pictures. Eventually, we realized we needed to turn around and ask for directions. Because, of course the corn maize isn't just right there.

On the way back to the shop, we came across a tree that looked like fire and John suggested we take pictures in front of it. Hell yes. I love cute pictures! After we snapped a few and were reviewing them, I noticed John had ended up on one knee and my brain started going a mile a minute.

And then he said, "Amanda, will you marry me?"

And I said something like "Really? Of course! Yes! Are you serious?" And I fumbled with my camera and deciding to take pictures or just embrace the moment (went with the latter). And the rest, as they say, is history!

Now I'm in full excitement mode! And planning! And smiling non-stop! It's just the absolute best thing that's happened in the history of everything.

I hope to blog more soon!
