We Got Engaged!...... And More Excitement From 2013

This is going to be the update post that I've been promising for a while. 
Trust me when I say that 2013 has been the biggest, the best and the busiest year of our lives!

So many things have happened this year, in fact, after our Thailand trip I feel like life was on fast forward, double speed. 

Here are all the things that happened (in no particular order):

- We got engaged! Chris and I have been together nearly 4.5 years now and it was so special to get engaged not long after our 4th anniversary. Here's the sparkler:


The proposal was so sweet and the ring is amazzzzing!! Everything I could ever have hoped for. I have the sweetest fiancé on the planet.

- We celebrated our engagement last month with a perfect garden party here in our home town. I still haven't come down from the excitement of getting engaged and part of the reason, I think, is because we waited three months for our party. We enjoyed it so much. I planned and styled everything myself and we had the good fortune of having help from our family and friends with food etc.








- We took our first overseas trip together to Thailand over our June/July Uni break.
