Before I move into my 33rd year, I want to end on a high note: the best thing that happened.

It was two days after Christmas. Tim & I always leave a couple presents at home to open when we return from visiting family. It stretches out the holiday and gives us some alone time to open anything special (or embarrassing or too big/breakable to travel).

We opened our big (luggage for me) and breakable (a coffee siphon for him) gifts. I gave Tim his ‘special’ gift, a very spendy leather wallet with a custom engraved guitar pick inside. He nervously handed me a small bag.

Inside the bag was a wrapped box. And inside the box…

Yep, we’re engaged!!

How amazing is that?! I completely did not expect it. In fact, whenever I call Tim my fiancé, I feel like I could possibly be dreaming.

Because I get to marry my favorite person, my travel buddy, and my best friend. Nothing could be better than that!
