Since I last wrote, I had my last day at work, said goodbye to all my Missoula friends, got engaged to Tony, packed up all of our stuff, drove 26 hours across the country to Missouri, helped my parents move up to Kansas City, and unloaded a bunch of our stuff into their house. There’s still a whole bunch to do (unloading more of our crap being top of the list) but I wanted to stop in for a second to say “hi!” and “I got engaged!”
So, yeah, now I’ve got a boyoncé (or, if you prefer, fiancé). Yay! He’s a really good one.
My ring is from the 1940′s. I love it so much.
I really like this picture of us and think maybe we could use it for our save the dates or something someday, who knows?
So, yes, we’re happy! We don’t know anything about when or where the wedding will be, so don’t bother asking (but thank you for your interest! I’ll keep you posted!).
Also, I just wanted to say before I stop writing and move more stuff: on the off chance that anyone is reading this and feeling sad that he or she isn’t engaged, please keep in mind that I am 26 years old and living in my parents’ house. My life is definitely not one to emulate. Relationship statuses are so loaded, especially for women, and I never want to be the person who makes anyone feel bad or less than because of who he or she is with or not with at all, ever. In fact, my personal dream is that someday America may be a bit more like Sweden, where you can be in a marriage-less relationship that is still considered legitimate. (Shout-out to Kristina for teaching me the word sambo and many other cool things about Swedish culture!). Until then, I hope that Fawn Log only ever makes you feel (a) happy or (b) confused but never, ever (c) bad. There’s plenty of internet for that, but this blog ain’t it!
Love you all! I’ll be back soon, hopefully.
