I feel like a lot has happened since my last post. For one thing, I'm engaged! Josh and I have been talking about it for a while now, a little more seriously back in November. After praying, talking to family and our pastor, and doing a bit of shopping around for rings, we felt the time was right. And so, on May 16th, Josh and I drove out to Franklin Falls, where we had one of our first dates (and I almost died...), and walked the mile or so to the falls. We clambered down to the foot of the waterfall, where we could feel the icy spray on our faces, and he knelt down on one knee. I said "Yes," of course, and the few people that were there by the waterfall cheered, and Josh turned me around to see his sister-in-law snapping pictures of the whole thing.
I'm so happy. And excited. Above all, I feel so blessed to have found a godly man to be my husband.
If you'd asked me two years ago where I thought my life would be at this point, I never would have imagined this. God is so good.
Anyway. In lieu of engagement photos (I still have to get the ones from his sister-in-law, and we will be taking more official ones in the coming weeks), I thought I'd share these with you. My Auntie took them of us a couple months ago, when we went to spend some time with her at a nearby park. She's a dabbling photographer, and wanted to practice by getting a few shots of us together. She captured so many sweet moments between us, and even if she's not necessarily happy with the shots, I will always treasure them. They really encapsulate us and our dynamic as a couple. Always walking arm-in-arm, always chatting away about silly things (in the bulk of these, we are discussing our mutual love of pretzel rolls and our business plans for a fast food joint called Food Babies). These pictures warm my heart and make me smile every time I see them.
Anyway, I'll talk to ya'll soon. :)
