I had the best surprise of my life this past week in Arizona.. I GOT ENGAGED!!! What was first supposed to be a relaxing week to unwind from a stressful couple of days of school, turned into something that I get to remember for the rest of my life, and I could not be more excited.
My sister, who just got married this past December, asked me how I was feeling about it all – of course I was on cloud nine. And I truly believe I will be forever on cloud nine just thinking about growing old with my sweetheart. It is the coolest feeling ever being engaged. Everything changes with just one question and just one answer, but at the same time, nothing changed at all. Like, yep, we’re engaged. This is where we are supposed to be. It is the strangest feeling, feeling both anxious and excited about all the new things to come, but also feeling a sense of familiarity and safety. It is a feeling that I never want to let go of.
My fiancé (going to have to get used to that!) planned the most perfect proposal. We were both just in our own little world on top of a mountain, enjoying our first moments as being engaged alone. For a little bit, we just looked at each other and smiled – not saying a word out loud, but knowing exactly what the other was thinking – this is just the beginning of the rest of our life. I am so excited to have him by my side forever.
Arizona will forever be special to me. Soon I’ll be living there with the love of my life, and we’ll be planning our wedding and getting ready for the rest of our life together. I am forever happy.
