This past Saturday started out like any other Saturday… breakfast at our favorite bagel spot followed by some local weekend errands. It ended up being such a beautiful day, so Raj and I got ready to head to our favorite spot to take my blog pictures and to enjoy being outdoors in 60 degree weather. The area was completely abandoned so we started to get a little silly (and creative) with the photos. Leaping across the grass, twirling so the scarf would blow in the wind… there was even talk of running through a flock of geese for a funny picture (although, of course I didn’t…). Raj told me to turn around so he can get a picture of my new boots and when I turned back around, he was on his knee.
After 7 1/2 years together, and living together for almost five of them… it’s kind of hard to pull off a surprise. There have been plenty of discussions between us about our future together, so I always knew this day was coming. A ton of our friends always teased us that our proposal would be some grand ordeal… with Raj coming down from a helicopter in some big, public way. I always knew in the back of my mind that he would catch me at a moment when I would be most surprised, and he definitely held up to that. I love that this moment was ours. There was no audience, no above and beyond fancy gesture… just us together in real-life. I love that he incorporated the blog into our special day. We started this adventure together and are always amazed at how far we’ve come. He is just as much a part of Oh So Glam as I am… I love that I will be able to come back to this post to re-read our story.
Thank you so much for all of your sweet words and congratulations that we have already received. We feel so loved and blessed that we not only have each other, but that we are surrounded by the most incredible people that enrich our lives. We’re so excited to take you along for this journey.
I’m not going to lie… I’ve never been one of those girls who has had her entire wedding planned before she’s even engaged. I of course have some ideas, but I would welcome any recommendations on Connecticut locations, vendors and any bridal advice to keep me somewhat sane over the next year.
