The world’s topsy-turvy at present. I have lots of good news to share! Best expressed with photo.
My sweetheart surprised me with an engagement ring, the night before my birthday, back in February. We snapped this photo just after the big moment. That’s us, underneath a viaduct at York Mills Station (a suburban area of Toronto). Not the most glamorous of locales, but surely the most romantic. It was just us, a couple of curious raccoons, and the graffiti. Urban romance! It was perfect. Check out that sparkle!
The next morning (my birthday), I awoke to diamond earrings to match.
I’m on top of the moon! The best part of being engaged is sharing the news. I just love hearing “it was only a matter of time, you two are adorable!” It makes me happy to think that love, quite literally, shines through.
We’re planning a summertime wedding in my parents’ beautiful backyard, followed by a reception at a fancy restaurant, with a lakeside view. As you can probably guess, I’m most excited about décor! We’re planning a paper theme, with lots of greenery; is that cryptic enough? I’ll share my progress as the day draws closer. Until then, it’s back to doodling ideas. – Holly xo
