♥ a love story.

my darling readers,
i am so happy to share my happiness with you:
yesterday, nicolas and i got engaged!

we got in the car and nick took me (blindfolded & beating heart)
to my most favorite place on earth: paragon carousel on nantasket beach.
{as you may recall, i love carousels}
it was opening weekend for the carousel, so we waited patiently
in a line of parents, children and the easter bunny.
the air was buzzing with happiness.
the carousel was as magical as ever.
the lights were aglow, the music was joyous,
and the moment was made even lovelier
when nick asked me to marry him.
when we got off the ride, the employees asked us how it was
and when we told them we had just gotten engaged,
an announcement was made and we were given a private ride
just the two of us. {and the easter bunny, of course!}
(ps. i am riding my favorite horse)
on the way home, i could not help but stare contentedly
at my glorious, magnificent engagement ring.
and repeat over and over,
"i am engaged," "i am engaged.."
{the words really do trill off the tongue.}
no sooner had i burst through the back door of my house
to tell my family the lovely news, that i received the second greatest piece of
news i had heard all day: my sister, lissy and her beau, beejay,
were also engaged that very morning!
(how my mama kept it a secret, i will never know!)

now, they say diamonds are a girl's bestfriend.
but i do believe they come second only to sisters.
i am so happy to share such a momentous occasion with my irish twin :)
and they all lived happily ever after.
