Today I am so excited to announce that I’m engaged to the man of my dreams!
How Tommy proposed:
Tommy asked me to marry him on Christmas Day which has always been a special day in our relationship. We have always used Christmas as a day to relish in our home and family life. The ring was wrapped in a small gift. After I unwrapped the present Tommy took the ring box out of my hand and got on one knee. He simply said “will you marry me” and I said yes (I don’t remember exactly what I said). Tommy’s sister and her boyfriend Alex were there, as well as my dear friends’ Emma and Alex. It made the day even more special to be able to share it with people we love.
A bit about our relationship:
Tommy and I met while I was a fellow at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. I remember seeing Tommy at the company Christmas party and thinking he was a major babe. Before we started dating we became friends and slowly we realized we had feelings for each other. We spent the first few months of our relationship apart while I was training to be a certified Yoga teacher. We reunited a few months later (to move-in together no less) and I knew he was a good find because my miniature dachshund ,Stella, instantly fell in love with Tommy.
For a few months we lived together and went about our working lives, we struggled a little but were very much in love. Then I was in a serious accident that left me in the hospital for a month and on bed rest for two months, Tommy cared for me tirelessly. I still think about how patient and tender he was with me during one of the most difficult times of my life. The accident left me broken in more ways than one and after a few months on the mend Tommy and I took a break.
We reunited a few months later and were stronger than ever. We decided to spend some time traveling together and learning even more about eachother. We went to four countries in three months and everyone told us “if you can survive that your relationship can survive anything.” To be honest the trip was mostly wonderful, of course we fought every once in a while but for the most part we just had fun.
Tommy and I filmed a Youtube video together that you can watch here, if you want to learn more about our relationship.
What we know about the wedding:
We haven’t done too much planning so far – mostly big picture stuff.
We have a few locations in mind, all of them are in California.
We are currently planning for a ceremony in Fall 2019, I want to have plenty of time to plan.
If you would like to hear about wedding plans please let me know in the comments and I’ll do my best to keep the blog updated as we plan more.
Wishing you a lovely day,
