The Time We Got Engaged

This past weekend was particularly awesome, not only did I get to see some great live music at the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival (post to come about that), hang out with great friends and enjoy beautiful fall sweater-weather but Greg and I got engaged.


On Saturday morning Greg gave me beautiful flowers, a wonderful ring and a mimosa and pancake filled breakfast.

We had been working with a jeweler (Jeneca Klausen) from Saint John for the past few months to design the ring so I wasn't super duper surprised because I knew what the ring was going to look like and that a proposal was in my near future but I was very, very, very happy with how everything went.

Info on the ring: the band is silver, the setting is gold and the stone is a rough cut diamond. The band is pretty thick because of my less than dainty fingers and also I'm not a dainty person.

Since we've been planning this for awhile now we've been able to set a date for next September, near the end of the month. Hooray for fall sweater-weather weddings!

Thank you to everyone who's passed along their congratulations so far. We're pretty darn excited!!!
