BRENDAN AND I ARE ENGAGED!

Gonna have an awesome budget-conscious wedding. My mom is somewhat baffled by this, but what she keeps forgetting to understand is that though I hate being the centre of attention most of the time, there are certain times when that is exactly what I do want. I thought she would have gotten the idea from my many extravagant birthday parties, but apparently not.

I also love planning these kinds of things, so I'm super excited just for that. I mean, yes, I'm excited to be married, but I don't believe so much in actually getting married as a sort of necessary thing to do when two people want to be together forever. I'm going to do that anyway, but this just makes it official and is really just a big party sort of thing. Honestly not sure if we would bother getting married if there wasn't a wedding.

Anyway, it's not for a year and a bit, but I've got the planning train rolling and my bridesmaids are all notified and happy with being bridesmaids. Jessie (maid of honor) is coming at the end of the week to finally see our place and to do weddingy things with me (not sure what exactly yet). I know we talked about dress "shopping" (I just want to try on some different styles to know what kind of dress I would like, but there is nooo way I'm buying one when I have a wonderful grandmother who can and hopefully will craft me a lovely gown to my specifications (in a much less horrible slave way than what that sounded like) for maybe $50 total (Jessie's was something like $20, which is amazing!). I'm hoping the dress looking happens a little later than Friday, though, as I would like to extend the invitation to come and fawn over dresses to my other available bridesmaids (so Jesse and possibly Hilary). I really hope that this can bring us all closer again. I miss my girls. I'll have to talk to Jessie before Friday and see if this is what she has in mind so that I can let the others know ahead of time if it is.

I plan to write most things wedding-related here, which will hopefully get my creative juices flowing because I haven't written much of anything for probably more than a year now and that is far too long to be without even a proper journal of my life!








My lovely ring, from what now appears to be a nonexistant Etsy shop (for a modest $16!)




Happy happy!




Me all happy with the ring




Brendan making fun of me hurr hurr (I actually love this picture, I think it sort of captures our relationship somehow)




The sun the day after getting engaged had a big rainbow around it! We were on our way to Salmon Arm to tell family people in person. Brendan aptly deemed it a good omen, saying "Ho-oh approves of our love." I love that we're such dorks. :D

(No, I didn't draw this. I just edited it in Paint.)

I love your ring! It suits you.
