I'm getting married!!

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

First off, congrats to Mike T for winning the Duet Membership to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame because #LOVEROCKS - Mike, email me and we'll get everything set up for you!

Now, for some big news. 

If you're connected to me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram you may have already seen this but....

I'M ENGAGED!!!!

My best friend, love of my life, person who makes me the happiest I've ever been and takes such good care of me, CK, asked me to marry him!!!

I'm over the moon.

Moments after CK proposed on Valentine's Day in New Orleans - I'm on a boat! Doesn't it look almost fake?

I'm not the type of gal to post a picture of the ring (although I'll text it to anyone who asks, ha), and I'm not going to go too deep into the proposal because that's really between me and CK but I will tell you this: it was more thoughtful than I ever could have expected.

There was my favorite bottle of bubbles (thanks sissy!), a gondola (thanks Roberto!), the most picture perfect setting (NOMA and City Park), the kindest words anyone has ever spoken to me (thanks CK!), lots of happy tears and even a photographer to capture it all (thanks Louis!) - it was amazing.

I may or may not have screamed "Holy Shit!" approximately 101 times while floating down the river - sorry kids playing in the park, I was excited!

It may have taken 29 years (when we started dating) and kissing a lot of frogs to find my future husband but I found him and can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him (and his little one).

But don't even talk to me about wedding planning, I'm not ready, and city hall is sounding great right about now - but we'll see - for now I'm just going to enjoy this special time with my fiance. 

Happy Tuesday, kids!

  4. Congratulations!! I'm so happy for you! It's been incredibly obvious how good of a thing you and CK have had going on since you first started talking about him here. Don't rush into planning if you don't want to -- and if city hall is what you want to do, do it!

  11. You guys are so cute and I totally thought it was a fake background when I saw this photo over the weekend. Ha. Sounds like you've got yourself a keeper (heck, he's from the Lou, OF COURSE he's a keeper!). You can text me a photo of the ring right now, because I think they're all purty! =)

  12. I'll be honest, your blog wasn't super relevant to me anymore the more you talked about Cleveland stuff, since I don't live there. However, I kept following solely because I was waiting for this announcement :) CONGRATS! Being married is so, so wonderful.

  20. I am beyond excited for you both!!! Can't wait to see you in person and give you a big squeeze (and see the ring of course!) Instead of screaming, I was rendered utterly and completely speechless - truly amazing if you know me - ha ha! Enjoy every minute of being engaged - it's such a magical time. Take as long as you want to plan the wedding of your dreams...whatever that is. xoxo

  27. All our wishes for a happy, lovely life together. We got married at city hall, just the two of us, and it was wonderful. Weddings tend to become about everyone else and having all these things go right. For us, it was about starting our lives together in a way which made us happy. Do what makes the two of you happy. Because if there is one time it should be all about the two of you and what you want - it's this.
