Time for something new, something old, something borrowed, and something blue!

Or to put it a little more plainly.... I'm engaged! Andrew is such an amazing and wonderful guy and I'm excited to spend the rest of my life and eternity with him. Last saturday, he invited me to go to Logan with him under the impression that we should go job hunting. School is starting soon and I'm going to need a job so I was totally fine with the idea, not to mention that I LOVE Logan and wouldn't mind spending a day there. So Andrew and I headed up to Logan and once we got there ran a few errands and then we wanted to go for a quick hike up Logan Canyon. The Wind Caves hike is where we went on our second date so Andrew thought it would be fun to go back and do it again. We got there and saw quite a few cars. It was after noon by this point and getting hot so Andrew decided that it would be better to go on a shorter hike since it was getting so hot. So we went to a different trail head, one that walks along the Logan river and talked and had a good time. We saw a bench that was shaded by trees and overlooked the river and the surrounding mountains. Andrew had packed some water, Nutty Bars and fruit snacks, which happen to be two of my favorite snacks, we sat on the bench for a while and talked and had a good time. Then Andrew asked if I wanted some fruit snacks (we had already eaten our nutty bars by this point) I said yes to the fruit snacks and so he reached in his bag and pulled out a pack of fruit snacks and handed them to me. Then he reached back in the backpack for what i assumed to be more fruit snacks and instead pulled out a ring box... I started to have a minor freak out and asked "Andrew, what are you doing!? What is in your hand!? He just laughed at me and looked me in the eyes and told me how much he loved me and that he wanted to spend eternity with me, then he got down on one knee opened the box and asked if I would marry him. I started crying and said yes, he sat there with the ring box open for a few seconds before I said "are you going to put it on or what?" So he put it on and I calmed my self down and we took a few pictures then we headed back down the trail to the car to go share the good news with everyone. The proposal came as a surprise because I did not know that he had talked to my mom, or that he had picked up the ring. My ring is gorgeous and I absolutely love it! I'm nervously excited to start the next phase of my life. But at least I wont be doing it alone!

The happy couple

My beautiful ring!

Last night I was out at gardner village taking pictures of my adorable nephew Seth. (pics coming soon!) and on the way home the clouds looked amazing! I was happy because for once i had my camera with me so I pulled over and took a few pics of the amazing clouds. I love Utah sunsets when the clouds rest right over the mountains...such a pretty sight. Anyways, thats all for now!
