Well hello, stranger!
It’s been at least a month since my last blog post, which is just terrible, but things have gotten crazy busy in the world of grad school… studying, reading, learning, teaching, marking, and applying for research grants has taken over my life!! However, this blog is still active, albeit SLOW. Expect no more than a couple posts per month, people – this girl’s got a lot going on!
With that disclaimer/excuse making out of the way… I HAVE SOME VERY EXCITING NEWS…
I am absolutely over the moon! This weekend was Thanksgiving here in Canada, which happens to be my all-time favourite holiday. When trekked home for a long weekend filled with pumpkin pies, family time, and some beautiful fall sunshine, I had no idea that I’d be coming back with a ring on my finger and a fistful of wedding planning pamphlets! So, for all of you gushy, romantic types, here are the details of how it all went down…
It was an absolutely gorgeous fall morning, and my man and I decided to go to our favourite hometown breakfast place. They have unequivocally the BEST eggs Benny anywhere, so we both tucked into our hollandaise-piled plates and enjoyed every bite. Then we decided to grab a coffee and take a stroll along the creek. It was SO beautiful; the leaves were practically glowing in the dusty autumn sun, and the air was so lovely and fresh. He took me down to the creek’s edge, said “I have a very important question to ask you”, and the rest is history! He even had a professional photographer hiding in the bushes, so we’ve got amazingly beautiful pictures of the whole thing. Can I just take a moment to say…. AHHHHHHOMGLSDKZLKFGNLKSNLMLAKMFLWAKJFNLAENWVLIDJGHKSFJJFLAA!!!!!!!!!
I am so deliriously happy! I’m going to marry the man of my dreams! The ring doesn’t suck either… ;)
SO, SO, SO, SO MUCH LOVE,
