the happy news

I got Michael a sappy card, but he got me a ring. I could not be happier that we're engaged. After ten months together, after knowing deep down that entire time that this was meant to be, yesterday was the day that it became official. And it was easily the best, and most romantic, Valentine's day ever.

gratuitous ring shot: please excuse my undone nails

He said he couldn't wait another day before popping the question, and I'm so glad he didn't! He'd had the ring for weeks and was waiting for the right moment, but the right moment kept going wrong. The big proposal plans he had planned for Montreal two weekends ago were thrown off by me getting horribly sick. Thankfully I didn't have to say yes with red eyes, a runny nose, and a hacking cough. The physical misery mixed with emotional bliss would not have been a good combination. Now all that's a distant memory. And all is right with the world, I'm going to marry my love, and it looks like we've now got some more planning to do around here!
