They Say Absence Makes the Heart Grow Founder…

I know you have all heard of the saying “absence makes the heart grow fonder.”  Well in my case…this is very true.  I have so much love for my blogging followers and fans and I really do appreciate all the concern and love that has been sent my way.   You all know how to make a girl feel loved!  I’m so fortunate to still have so many followers even in my absence this year.   I truly have missed preparing blog posts for you and I really hope that I will be able to get back at it very soon.   I will be attempting to blog for the next two months on a very irregular basis.  Can you believe that we are so close to the holidays again?!   Time sure does fly by.

Oh…and I have BIG news….


On Saturday, August 20th…my love of soon to be 5 years (our 5-year dating anniversary is on 11-11-2016) popped the BIG question!   Of course….I SAID YES!

I’m so happy to start planning our wedding ceremony and reception for next year.  We have chosen to become Mr. & Mrs. on 11-11-2017.  We have over a year to plan and we are both eager to start planning.   I’ve already ordered our Save the Date cards and we have a wedding cake consultation & cake tasting scheduled at one of my favorite bakeries in Greensboro in early November and then we are meeting with a Photographer later that month.  In the meantime, we are attempting to take our own engagement photos this Fall as soon as the leaves start to change!

I am hoping to include some of the wedding planning in some of my blog posts as I’m new to the engagement club and this will be a totally new experience for me.   We are hoping to have a small intimate ceremony for immediate family and a few close friends and then a BIG reception party to celebrate afterwards!


Our very first date was at Starbucks…so we just had to stop by and get some coffee and celebrate being engaged!

Here’s to life, love, health, and happiness!  I’m a lucky girl..that’s for sure!
