I still can barely write or talk about this without tearing up, overwhelmed with gratitude, so I’ll keep it brief: Tommy and I got engaged last weekend and we are absolutely thrilled!! (Seriously I’m sitting here at 6:30 AM typing this with tears streaming down my face.)
Before I met Tommy, I never knew this level of happiness existed. I never knew I could feel this way about someone else – absolutely overwhelmed with gratitude and love. There’s also a profound feeling of partnership in our relationship, which is so important to me. And, I genuinely LIKE him. Love is so so important, but it’s equally important to LIKE the person you’re with. I love hanging out with him, I value his advice, he makes me laugh, and I’m just in awe of all he is and all he does.
And Maizey obviously approves.
We are so excited to be an official family. 🙂
I’m also so grateful for a loving God who brought such an amazing man into my life (via our friend Matt 🙂 ).
I’ve gotten a lot of questions/comments on Instagram and Facebook about the engagement and how it happened, and yes, I will share more details! But right now, I’m just enjoying basking in the newness of this! I’m thinking in a week or so, I may attempt Facebook Live (if I can figure out how to do it 😉 ) so he and I can both tell y’all the story together and you can ask questions. And if you can’t watch when we do, I can embed the video here after the fact. So, keep an eye out for a date/time on that! [Update – here’s how he proposed!]
Thank you all SO much for your support and love, whether you’ve been reading for just a few weeks or years. The response from you, my blog readers and friends (in real life or not), has been overwhelming. Truly, thank you. 🙂
