Sneak Peek: Engagement Photos


I wasn’t sure if I wanted to post these yet, since these are just snippets from Vina’s iPhone. I would also link her, but she has so many blogs I wouldn’t even know which one to link to. Maybe Vain Vina. Because I love her face.


I wanted her to do our photos because I love her style. She’s the multimedia maven for the EatGoodFood group. Her posts for the restaurants are so well composed, fun and well basically I feel like if she¬†could make all this food look delicious…she could probably make us look good too?

JD3qYnAAt35G4UMD.jpgI don’t really like taking pictures. I feel awkward standing in front of a camera and posing. (There goes my modeling career right?) But I really wanted to capture our little family dynamic and have some good shots. She made us feel very comfortable, and we pretty much just did normal things and she just happened to capture them. WIN!


Bawse was a better sport than I thought he would be. Mostly because he was out playing and swimming and every once in a while he would have to come pretend he loved us.


I can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures! Thank you again Vina!


We’re Engaged!


I can’t believe I am writing this post. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to share this personal of a story on my blog, but it’s such a good story, why not? As you already know, the honey surprised me with a birthday trip to the Bahamas. But the surprise did not end there.


Our second day on the islands, he made reservations at Dune Restaurant on Paradise Island. Before that though, he wanted to watch the sunset at this special place he read about The Cloisters. He said it would be a nice little walk on the beach to get there.


Yes, it was a walk on the beach, but no it was not nice. Haha! Since we were headed to dinner afterwards, I was already made up, and in my dinner dress. We walked down to the public beach and walked across the sands, for what felt like an hour over hilly ATV tracks. When we finally made it to where we could walk off the beach and on to the roads, we ended up in front of a liquor store, and on the back side of an industrial park.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, we were walking in the wrong direction on the main road. As the neighborhoods got less friendly, he realized…and we turned around and walked in the right direction. I’m sweating, and not feeling fresh for our fancy dinner and he’s soaked through his shirt. But when we got to the destination, I forgot all about it.


The Cloisters are beautiful. Sculptures and flowers and a cute little altar overlooking the water at the end of it. He told me to go ahead and check it out, he was going to set up the camera. So I am in the altar taking pictures, and he joins me.


He hands me a scroll with a love letter written in it. I start tearing up as I read it, and at the end it says, “PS I have a question for you”.

I look up at him and say, “What’s up”, and he looks a little startled and says, “what”. I told him he said he had a question…and he gets down on one knee.

“Will you marry me?”
“Yes” -tears falling.


“can you put it on me?”

“oh yeah” *slips ring onto finger

Hugs and kisses all around. <3
