A long time coming...

Apparently, it took quitting my job at Seattle Bride to lift the so-called "wedding curse" (not really a curse at all) that had hit so many employees before me. Earlier this week Todd completely surprised me and proposed with a family heirloom ring my mom sneakily sent him a few weeks ago. So it's official: After all these years I am a Seattle Bride!

Todd popped the question in a booth at Tango, our old neighborhood hangout where we met three-and-a-half years ago, also during a Sunday happy-hour. It was very low-key, romantic and sweet. I hadn't even showered that day, had no makeup on, and was wearing jeans, sneakers and a flannel shirt—I'm pretty sure he thinks I'm a keeper :)

So that's the story. I have no idea what kind of wedding we'll have, but it will probably be sometime this summer, small and sincere. Stay tuned for news about this next adventure...

It did not happen on a starry night in Paris with the Eiffel Tower coming out of my head, but it was THIS romantic!
