Where do I even begin? The past seven days have been the happiest, most stressful, joyous, tiring, and exciting week thus far of my life. I went on a crazy roller coaster and I know it ain’t over yet. Not by far.
It would take way too long to recap everything in one post and I’m quite honestly a bit (ok a lot bit) overwhelmed with how much is going on right now.
The first thing though… I AM ENGAGED!!! I AM GETTING MARRIED!!!
I will share the proposal story at a later date (as there are photos to accompany it!) but I will just say I cried and basically fell to the floor (NOT JOKING, I literally buckled at the knees) then after more tears and trying to summon up “Yessssss” I laughed with my dear friends who were there with me. Then I cried some more. Then laughed some more. Then cried a lot more.
And the other big news is…I AM MOVING!!! TO PORTLAND!!! There are many (many) factors that lead to this decision and it has been something that has been on our minds for a few years now. My fiancé (still getting used to calling Robby that!) and I always knew Portland is where we wanted to settle down eventually (he was born and raised there). We always called it our 5 year plan. However, things in life change, and that 5 year plan turned into a 5 week plan.
So, after my birthday weekend and engagement, the very next day we flew to Portland to begin the house hunt, shop hunt, office hunt, wedding venue hunt, and get a wee little time exploring the Oregon coast by Tillamook. We are exhausted. And the fun hasn’t even really begun! I have less than 5 weeks to pack up my entire life and move it over 800 miles north into an adorable craftsman home with a motherfrickin claw foot tub!
