It has been an entire seasons since I have blogged. It has also probably been the most exciting season of my life thus far. So much has happened and will continue to happen. Fall has not failed me yet and I am sure that it will continue to please.
To start, I got engaged. Yes, you have heard correctly. I am engaged to Nathan Andrew Kivett and we will be getting married on April Fool's Day - which, if you know me well, and I am sure most do because not to many people read my blog, it is a perfect date for the two of us! He proposed on a Thursday evening at Centennial Park. I was completely surprised. I showed up to play frisbee with him and eat a turkey sandwich with him after I finished babysitting. It was a regular Thursday afternoon/evening. We threw the frisbee for about 20 minutes and I was beginning to be a little spastic with the frisbee so he decided that we should stop and have a sandwich. We sat down on our blanket, by the tree where we always sit. He told me that he had made me something, I was a little weary at first. Then he said that it was a return address stamp. He told me that he felt bad that he never write me letters back (I mail him a lot of fun notes and send him cards and letters in the mail) so he made me a return address stamp. he took the stamp and placed it in the ink and handed it to me. I took it, looked at the arrows on top to make sure it was right side up, and then stamped it on the envelope that he placed in front of me. I lifted it up and looked at it....it took me a few seconds to realize what was going on. I read it, "will you marry me," hand carved by Nathan Kivett! I looked up and he was on one knee and asked me to marry him! It was unbelievable.
(yes, Nathan carved this himself, just for me!)
Well, I will have to update the rest of the happening this season soon. This is the last week that I will be engaged with my bestie Sarah because she is getting MARRIED in 7 days!
