Chatham is now one of my favorite places. The weather during this time of year is unbelievable! I’m used to the Austin, TX heat where it’s about 100 degrees every day and it feels like a blow dryer is on your face, but on the East Coast, it is absolutely refreshing. Birds I’m not used to hearing were singing their beautiful morning songs, hydrangeas were everywhere soaking up the morning sun, and my coffee even tasted a little better just because I was on vacation. It was definitely a vacation I think we all needed.
I was on vacation with my fiancé’s (gotta get used to that term!) family and my family. It was so nice to have everyone together and little did I know, there was a huge secret that everyone was in on except for me. Last Sunday evening, my boyfriend- now fiancé- got down on one knee and proposed to me. We were surrounded by a lush, green garden filled with honeysuckles, hydrangeas and roses. It was magical and I will never forget it.
I’m so lucky to have both amazing families in my life. I look so forward to spending the rest of my life with my best friend who keeps me laughing and smiling all the time. We have such a great time together and I can’t wait to begin this new chapter of our lives together! Here are some pics of our amazing trip:
