I owe you a post. I know, it’s been a while, but boy oh boy, do I have a post for you! The past week has been the best one of my life so far! I feel extremely blessed and lucky. I am going to marry the love of my life!! Sweet man proposed, and I said “of course”!
I have to back track to last weekend to tell the engagement story. I didn’t really see it coming. It was a normal weekend like most, started out with a wedding set up on Saturday. A beautiful wedding of fuscia, lime green and charcoal:
After the wedding, I came home, ate a late lunch of unpictured leftover enchiladas. Then I got ready and we headed over to St. Pete for the Glow Run. It was a blast and I ran my fastest 5k ever. It wasn’t a timed event, but it appeared that I came in the 100-200 of a few thousand runners. It was a race meant for the fun of it, but I am training for the St Pete Rock and Roll half next month, and I wanted to push myself for a fast run. It felt amazing!!!!
After the race, we went to Square 1 Burger for some post race burgers:
They have great burgers! I got the “Firebird’, which is a spicy turkey burger. After dinner, I crashed hard. Long day at work, a speedy 5k, a giant burger and some wine makes for one sleepy gal!
Sunday we had a wonderful day planned. We both had the day off. I woke up early, did some chores, relaxed, drank coffee, ate breakfast (cereal I think, it’s all a little fuzzy now, as what was about to happen is the monumentus of the day, the week, the month, the lifetime!).
I showered, got “comfortably perty” in my yoga pants and sweater. I packed up my camera and purse and announced “okay honey, I’m ready to go.”
He was sitting on the couch, and I was standing in the living room. The sweetest look came over his face, and he said “I wanted to ask you something first”. He took me by the hand and led me to a place in the room where he could get down on one knee (just happened to be surrounded by our kitties), where he confessed his love for me and asked me to marry him. Tears welled in both our eyes, hands were shaking, and a long wonderful kiss followed my yes!
Our next stop was Sweetwater Organic Farmers Market. We picked up some salsas and produce:
After the market, we headed to the Kaleisia Tea Lounge in Tampa. We had some tea and lunch,but we were busy making calls and sharing the good news with family, that I forgot to take pictures except for dessert:
2 small vegan cupcakes. The green one was my favorite. I loved the frosting! I think it was some kind of green tea cupcake?
After lunch, we picked up some champagne and headed back home to celebrate
After a bottle of champagne and a light lunch, we came up with a crazy dinner of baked bean nachos;
It was the happiest day of my life!…So far, this year is going to be epic!
