I’M ENGAGED!! YAHOOOO!!!
I think most of you had guessed it by now (plus I have a big mouth and told just about everyone I’ve talked to lately) – but I wanted to wait until the ring was here to make the ‘official’ announcement 😉
So there you have it! I am getting married!
Many of you have gotten to know Tommy as he’s become a bigger part of my business over the past couple of years, and I think we’ve both known for awhile that our partnership was headed in this direction. This is my favorite picture of the two of us:
My friend Liza took this on the 4th of July circa 2004 – on a Hasselblad polaroid back, no less (hi Liza!). Look at what a smitten kitten I was (who am i kidding, i still am!). Anyhow, I look at this picture, and think about everything I’ve accomplished since than – growing my business, opening a gorgeous new studio, buying a house – and Tommy has been by my side for it all (well, there were those six months he moved to NYC to be a rock star – but he came back!!). I feel like the luckiest gal alive 😉
And I *love* my ring – I wanted something a little modern/funky – but still classic. Plus, it was my grandmother’s stone, which makes it even more meaningful. My grandparents were married for over 60 years, and madly in love the whole time.
We haven’t set a date yet – although I’m thinking 2010, since 2009 is already pretty booked. Now I just need to lose 15 lbs, get perfect skin, and achieve ‘kate arms’. Gah – being engaged is making me crazy already!! I’m even having irrational thoughts about teeth whitening.
OH – and first person to ask who’s shooting the wedding gets a SPANKING!!!
