JAY AND I ARE ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!
Yes, really. And I couldn't be happier. Here are the details of how it went down...
Saturday, Jay had specifically asked that I don't go to dance class (tough request!) He had mentioned that he wanted to take a drive up to Mt. Evans, which is something we've done almost every year since we started dating. So, not an unusual plan to make. So after a morning garage sale and before an evening BBQ, we headed up to the top if Mt. Evans.
14,260 feet is gorgeous
I cried some more, and we hopped back in the truck to head down the mountain. But not before stopping at the beautiful Summit Lake for a couple engagement shots! Selfies of course...
As we headed down the mountain, I relived the whole scene again in my head...cried some more. But managed to take the obligatory "ring" shot.
As soon as we were within cellphone service range again, we started calling our family and texting some of my out-of-town friends. The BBQ that night was a perfect opportunity to share with some of my close friends before posting it for the world on Facebook.
We haven't picked a date yet, but we are thinking around October,November or December of 2014. Part of me wants to just elope next month and be married to Jay. But we both want our family and close friends to celebrate with us. But....time may tell! :)
I also found out that August 10 is my paternal grandparent's anniversary date! Well done, Jay, well done! :)
Can't believe I get to call Jay my fiancé, I am looking forward to calling him my husband. :)
