IT’S OFFICIAL…WE’RE ENGAGED!
I got the shock of my life at our annual New Year’s Eve gathering…Nathan asked me to marry him just before the ball dropped!
I never saw it coming or had any clue, but being we both love our friends and our parties, there wasn’t a more perfectly-suited moment for the occasion.
Of course…I said yes! We don’t have a date set yet, but we do have an idea…and I will say that I’m glad I changed my name to his years ago, because now all the icky paperwork’s out of the way and all I have to do is enjoy the good stuff.
If you’d like to share the magic, here’s a musical slide show of the evening as well as the two-and-a-half minute film of the proposal. What’s “The Year-Long Question” about? Nathan asked me in 2011…and I answered him in 2012. For the rest of his life, he says, he’s going to tell people he had to wait a whole year for my answer. Ha!

OMG.OMG. OMG. That was GREAT!! I am teary eyed!! So excited for you guys! And while I was watching the video, David interrupted “What are you listening to?” I yelled back: “I tell you in a minute.” (Sheesh! Ya can’t interrupt a proposal story!!). Of course then he had to come watch it too and he loved it as well. (So I’m not just a softee girl!!). Raising a glass from the coastline. Can we raise a glass in person?? xoxo, K
