The BIG Weekend


I'm sorry I've been missing for the past few days! I've been out maxin' and relaxin' in Big Sur. It was amazing. Seriously, go, no run, to Big Sur. The. most. romantic. weekend. ever.

And now I can tell you my biggest secret of all. For two months, I've had to keep this from you and it has been so hard. On my birthday, when McG told me that my present would be two days on a mountain top in a yurt he also asked me if I would like to participate in a "super secret engagement ceremony." It was so perfect and so us. We laughed and cried. I am no longer a crazy girl who writes a wedding blog without actually getting married. Now I'm a crazy girl who writes a wedding blog and IS getting married. Sweet!

I'm not ready to share details quite yet. I want to keep that just for us but here is the happy couple post-"ceremony".

And here is the bling -


And I told my mom and she's already envisioning tents in her backyard. Fabulous.

Ohhh how exciting! Congratulations - I second what BEL said, that high after being engaged is the funnest part. (I realize funnest isn't technically a word, but for situations such as this I needed to break it out) : )
