Last I talked to you guys I was leaving for a wonderful weekend getaway, and I have some super, fantastic, superb, amazing, wonderful, ridiculous, its-about-time news to share! I'm sure you already guessed it (or saw it on facebook) so here goes: ADAM AND I ARE GETTING MARRIED! GAH! Turns out this wasn't any old trip to New York, although I have to say I knew it was coming! I mean, when you have been together eight years you start to expect certain things. You create scenarios in your head for every possible moment that these "things" might happen. You pay extra attention to every little detail, hoping that an awkward smile or nervous twitch might mean that "things" are coming, and coming soon. And you also go pick out a ring three weeks prior to a vacation. If that doesn't say a proposal is coming soon I don't know what does. But no, it wasn't much of a surprise, and that just made it perfect. And completely us. 

Now I know you are dying to hear the story, and even if you're not just pretend that you are interested, cause everyone knows I love telling it! But just to make everyone happy, I will give you a condensed version: 

On our way up to Pinegrove Ranch for the weekend we stopped to do a little nature walking at Bushkill Falls. The park was absolutly amazing — beautiful trees, perfect paths and stunning waterfalls — a perfect place for Adam to make his move. He must have agreed, because he snuck back to the car (or as he said "bathroom"), put the ring in his pocket, came back and we continued the walk. He had this silly (and adorable!) smile on his face when he came back from the "bathroom" so I knew something was up. We continued our walk, which turned into a hike. No really, a serious hike! We climbed so many stairs that my calf hurt for the next three days. I really need to do some serious leg workouts... Anyway, fast-forward thirty or so minutes (and thirty million stairs) and we made it to the top of the trail. We stood there overlooking the Deleware River Valley, taking in the surrounding mountian scene. Then, I turned to the side, wanting to say something to Adam, and saw him down on one knee! Bring on the goosbumps (the really good kind.) Then there was a bunch of giggling, a hug, more giggling, and he asked me to marry him! I of course, said "of course" and have never been happier! Side note: I saw the ring box in his pocket half way through our hike, and I am only telling everyone because I think it's really funny and completely adorable at the same time. You can beg to differ, but I don't care :)

So in case my story wasn't enough — here's a few pictures so you can see just how wonderful this whole thing was!

See? I told you. Wonderful, right?

I am seriously obsessed — with this boy, this ring, this happiness and this life.
