The Engagementmoon

It’s been a while since I’ve done an update on the blog, I know. But things have been a bit crazy here! For starters, Matt and I got engaged!

Matt proposed Friday, October 11th in our apartment with a beautiful ring inside a glass of champagne followed by an AMAZING dinner at Daniel. I said yes, obviously and we spent the long weekend at my parents celebrating and drinking (more) champagne and brainstorming how to have the perfect wedding. The Wednesday after that we embarked on an 8-day cruise to the Bahamas, a sort of Engagementmoon!

Taking a relaxing trip, just the two of us, was the perfect way to celebrate. We had a significant amount of time to just focus on each other and the promise we were making and the excitement of what was to come. We had massages in the spa, days reading on the beach, and didn’t have to worry about cooking or cleaning. Not to mention the beaches were beautiful :)

Here are a few photos from the trip if you’d like to see!

And going for a swim (and kisses) in the Caribbean!

Would you go on an engagementmoon? Or would you rather wait to take a big trip for your Honeymoon? I think it was so fun to spend a few days on the beach away from everything to celebrate on our own. And since we want to head to a mountain to ski for our Honeymoon, why not both?
