My weekend was a bit more exciting than I let on…. I suppose you can guess what my answer was?

There just aren’t enough words out there to describe how excited and filled with joy I am! Over the moon would be an understatement. This weekend was like a glorious dream! And a big thank you to those who already know and have already been so kind with their congratulations.

  • OMG, wow, wow, wow! Congratulations to you and Sam. I’m sooo happy for you! (And also a teeny bit jealous).

  • Your eyes look so happy in that close up!
    Congrats again πŸ˜€

    • Hahah thank you! I think I was still in a state of total surprise. Although that photo was taken the next morning because Sam proposed at night and he said (and I quote) “it was like a cry bomb exploded. You went from zero to sobs in 2 seconds” Which is true. I looked like a mess. But a happy mess! xx

  • Kelly

    Congratulations!! πŸ™‚

  • Jen

    Congrats!! So so exciting!

  • CONGRATULATIONS to you both! You are gonna be the prettiest most frilliest, loveliest bride ever. And if it all gets a bit much, just remember: being a wife is way easier than planning a wedding.

    • Wedding planning already makes me shiver with anxiety. People immediately started asking when the wedding will be, and the best answer I could come up with was “in the future?” xx

  • Wow!!!Congratulations to you and Sam. You are so lovely together. Seeing the bright smile on your face makes me feel so happy too. Wish all the best to you ^^

  • Congrats!!!! πŸ™‚

  • A huge congratulations and much love!

  • Julie @ Artwork by JM

    Awww yayyy!! Congratulations!! I love the photo of your huge smile…so sweet!

  • I’ve always been told you should never congratulate the women when these things happen, it’s the man who should be congratulated. He’s the lucky one to have had his proposal accepted. Considering you make the best brownies ever, I think this is particularly true in your case. So all I will say is… Sam is SO LUCKY!! πŸ˜€ xx

    • Haha, thank you Robert. I love this! I think Sam threw tradition out the window when he asked my mom for her permission. I even briefly toyed with the idea of making my own wedding cake until realising that that would be an incredibly stressful idea. And a bad one. xx

  • congratulations to you both on here as well! xo

  • CONGRATULATIONS! How very exciting, you look so happy and the ring is beautiful! xx

    • Thank you so much! We can hijack bloggerhithe for you and Frankie to give me all the tips…… xx

  • Julia

    Yay, yay, yay! Congrats!

    • Thank you Julia! Now I just need to figure out how to get my family and friends from Albuquerque to London cheaply! xx

  • Congrats!!!

  • Thank you so so much! I’m super excited! xx

  • Thank you so much! Sam snapped the one of me, and then we coerced a passerby to take the photos of us together. πŸ™‚ xx

  • Congratulations! Love the photos πŸ™‚

  • YAYAYAYAY congrats! Such a pretty ring (and a pretty outfit too!)

  • Ahh! Congratulations girly! So happy for you two!

  • LOVE!!! Congratulations!!

  • Congrats!

  • Oh how exciting, congratulations

  • Congratulations to you both!!! Wonderful news! I’m willing to bet the pittance I have to my name that the wedding guests wouldn’t argue against you making your own wedding cake.

    • Hahaha I did briefly toy with that idea. Before realising that it would probably be the most stressful idea ever… xx

  • I’m sooooo excited for the both of you!!! A million congrats!!!!!!! xoxoxo

  • Samantha Bender

    CONGRATS! Gorgeous ring and beautiful couple!

    Totally just now getting through posts after being gone. Yay! Congrats!! If I was there I’d do a candle ceremony for you!

    • Thank you! I’m not going to lie- I’d love to have a candle passing ceremony. Although everyone knows now so I suppose it wouldn’t be a huge surprise at the ceremony. x

      • Betsy Glenn

        Eh it would still be fun to do! I wish there was some way to do one for you …. I need to ponder this idea a little more …

  • aw this made me so happy! Aw I’m happy for you guys, what a lovely news and lovely ring! Go Sam! πŸ™‚ All the best to you both!!xx

  • I’m SO happy for you two! I can’t wait to hear all the details. You look so happy! And your ring is just gorgeous. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!

  • How exciting! Congratulations to you both! If you haven’t already found it, I highly recommend A Practical Wedding. We’ve been married for almost 3 years, and I still read…because it’s about more than planning a marriage – it’s about making a life and growing a marriage. Also lots of stuff about female entrepreneurship.
