My Life

I have a little nugget of great news…

I landed myself a man!
His name is Nick Killpack and he is incredible.
He took me to San Francisco (the city we met in) on a surprise trip and popped the question!

I was 100% surprised and let me just tell you that took some serious skill on his part.

It ain’t easy to get one by on this little detective.

I’m really excited to blog about wedding stuff and I am really excited to have the prettiest ring ever, but mostly I am just completely head over heals in love with this guy and excited marry the heck out of him.

So don’t be mad, I’ll make my absence up to you with some gems, starting tomorrow. Promise.

Oceans of love!
