some wonderful news!


Hello everyone! Sorry for the late start to the week, but I promise I have a really good excuse.

After posting about taking some time off last week, little did I know how wonderful that extra long weekend would turn out to be! After telling our family and friends, i'm beyond happy to share that Rick & I got engaged! It happened late Friday afternoon in the countryside, amongst the thunder and pouring rain, and it couldn't have been more perfect – a total surprise! It's been so great to tell everyone, share our news, and explain how it all happened... I feel like i'm in a little dreamland. But most of all... I get to call Rick my fiancé now, and i'm so looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together! So exciting!

P.S. I promise I won't go all "wedding blog" here on Dress, Design & Decor, but expect just a little inspiration here and there, I need your suggestions after all!

Oh, wonderful news indeed! Can't wait to hear the whole proposal story, and to see some of your stylish choices for the big day. Enjoy this time...it's such a thrill! (And splurge on exceptional wedding shoes)

dagmara said...

That's wonderful news. I'm happy for you. Make sure to have engagement photos taken so you'll remember this time (I regret not doing so). And don't keep us in suspense... show us your ring! I'm imagining a vintage sparkler; am I right?

Daniella said...

Oh thank you dagmara! I was going to show my ring, but felt kind of shy about it! lol... it's soooo beautiful though, Rick has such great taste! It's a thin plain platinum band with a diamond solitaire. I love it! Funny you say vintage though, as my Creative Director asked if it was an antique! It's perfect. I love it!

Geisslein said...

Congrats from me too - this is so beautiful to hear, great news! wish you all the best!!! geisslein

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

CONGRATS! Looking forward to following along with your planning.

Funny...M also proposed to me outside after it had rained. It was deserted and perfect (for me) -- I'm not the public proposal kind of girl!

Daniella said...

Thanks so much everyone! It is definitely such a great time! I'm so excited waking up each morning, realizing we're engaged!

Thank you for all the lovely wishes!
