This weekend has felt a little bit like a dream, after Alex popped the question on Friday night! I obviously said yes, about 14 times. I won’t share all of the details here, but Alex planned a wonderfully sentimental and romantic evening, involving a lot of the places and things from our “early days” of dating. It brought (many) tears to my eyes, and I’ve always felt like the luckiest girl in the world with him.


He proposed Friday night, and my parents were visiting over the weekend so Saturday morning we got to tell them in person. It was so wonderful having them around to celebrate, and we were all quite excited.  (I’m also SO happy that my sister in law also lives in Richmond, and is a wedding planner expert. How did I get so lucky?)

I shamelessly flaunted this around all weekend, but could you blame me?


Once things settle down over here, I’ll get back to playing in the kitchen. For now, I’m going to go enjoy filling up this Pinterest board….
