right this second…


I’ve been thinking a lot about:
color schemes.
the outdoors.

I’m remembering:
the sun.
the beach.
his words.

because I’ve got a:
pretty new ring on my finger.

I’m excited to officially tell you that:
we’re engaged!

I’ll tell you about it next week. right now I’m soaking in the newness with my mind high in the clouds and heart full of love. have a nice weekend, friends!
