I'm Engaged! You are looking at the Future MRS. MANLY! With the name to instill fear in all future children's friends and boyfriends. I am so so so happy and have been so busy wrapping my head around everything.

So how he proposed?
Cody asked me to take a half day off of work on November 1st, 2012. I honestly didnt think anything of it and thought he just wanted to take me to brunch or something random. But then I had to wake up at the break of dawn and was told to wear my warmest clothes... Okay? After an hour drive at 6 am, we are in the middle of an almost empty parking lot. And then I see it... The hot air balloon truck pull up... Mr. Manly was taking me on a surprise hot air balloon ride to watch the sunrise of Georgia. I was ecstatic... and then... we hear... "I am sorry.. but because of hurricane Sandy... it is too dangerous to go in these conditions"... Naturally bummed, I was completely fine with just the thought of it. But then Mr. Manly starts stressing out! We were in the car driving off and I had no idea why he was panicking. He tells me that he still wants to watch the sunrise and then it was like a cartoon lightbulb hit him.
His parents house was not far off, and they have a beautiful home with a private two story dock on the lake. On the dock, we watched the sunrise while being completely comfortable and happy in the other's company. I begin taking pictures of the sunrise on the lake when I hear Mr. Manly say my name. I turn around and there he is, on one knee, with a beautiful and stunning ring in his hand. I was completely shocked and had absolutely NO idea. Of course I said yes, and it has been the single, best decision of my life. I can not wait to be this man's wife. He makes me feel like the luckiest woman in the world and I am so in love with him :)

And that is how it happened. But I am making it a goal, as well as Mr. Manly pushing me to keep this goal, to write more. Blogging is my me time and I need to spend more time with all of you! So YAY! Let's get ready for wedding planning all!!
