Over the moon (and then some)

So wow, yeah — I am engaged!

And I’m a little surprised at how thrilling and swoonifying and altogether exciting this new circumstance actually is.

Because I did this once and it didn’t turn out so well and so spent many years a bit jaded and such. And it’s not as though I felt I needed a proposal to feel any more bonded or committed or happy in my relationship with Doug.

But for some reason his (very romantic) proposal has kind of thrown me all loop-de-loop and I can’t stop smiling, even in conference rooms at work (where there’s absolutely no reason to smile, ever), and I walk down the street with a lilt and thrill that wasn’t there last week. And the warmth and excitement from our family and friends just makes it that much more fantastic.

It’s going to be a good rest of my life.

    Stop with the blog posts that make me tear up.

    And by “stop” I mean “keep them coming”.
