I'M OFFICIALLY OFF THE MARKET!
|Because I only plan on doing this once in life|
|I'll always remember that I got engaged in my finest sweats|
It took us an entire day just to spread the word to all of Rob's 9 siblings. It might have been the hardest secret I've ever kept for 24 hours. But when Rob FaceTimed me into his mother's birthday celebration late Thursday night after work and I was able to witness the family's reaction, it was well worth the wait. Screams and cheers filled that kitchen instantly and I sat in front of my computer and tears came to my eyes. These people that I've grown to love over the years, they love me just as much. And soon they'll officially be my family.
Soon after, the secret began to leak. I've spent more time on the phone in the last 3 days than I ever remember before. FaceTime is a glorious thing, being able to SEE everyone's reaction as Rob and I tell everyone the great news. Yesterday we made a special trip to go tell my grandmother, 93 years young and more full of life than ever before. Her reaction was priceless, and at one point she even told us, "You know, I say my prayers every night and I always include Rob. And I pray to God that I won't club him!" Well Gram, now that's one less prayer when you go to bed at night.
|Soon to be 💖|
|How long until I think this kind of stuff is cheesey? Never, good.|
|Me and my Spectathlete, forever 💕|

We decided to head out last night, for the first time in a long time. Very impromptu, very last minute, very much the kind of celebration I love. But we had some of our dearest friends by our sides and we celebrated the night away.
|Seriously.. It'll never get old 😉|
|Full Disclosure - this photo was taken after midnight|
I was so proud of myself for staying awake so long!
So, I guess you could say 2018 is off to a pretty solid start. We're only 14 days in, and I haven't stopped smiling yet. Cheers 🍻
