I know it’s been a while since my last blog post and I’ve come to realize that I need to better prioritize my time throughout the day. My classes and workload started to get hectic and balancing that along with work tends to be difficult. Excuses aside, a few exciting things have happened since then. The most notable: On February 28th I got engaged!
My fiancé Briar and I have been together for four years, some of the beginning long distance when I moved off for college. Although we’ve talked about marriage in the past, I wasn’t expecting it whatsoever that day. It was truly unexpected, but nonetheless I couldn’t be more thrilled! We’ve decided to have our wedding next year, probably on May 6th.
Sunday on Feb. 28th, we planned a hiking trip at Cummins Falls State Park in Cookeville, TN, which I had never been to before. It was absolutely stunning with a beautiful rushing river and giant stones to stand on while enjoying the scenery. We also set up a little campfire and had a picnic by the water.
Briar set up a camera that was supposedly on timer, but when it didn’t go off I went to check on it. He turned me around to hug and kiss me then proceeded to get on one knee. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t start crying!
It was truly perfect and I feel so lucky to have such a sweet man in my life. He has always treated me with kindness and respect and has come to be my best friend. I always feel comfortable around him and he’s been by my side when others have left me. I’ve enjoyed so many laughs with him and I’m looking forward to a lifetime of them!
I might do some wedding related posts later on while I’m planning it so if you would be interested in that please let me know in the comments. Again, sorry for not posting lately and hopefully I can work out a better schedule to get regular content out.
Have a beautiful day!
