Sneak Peek

As most of you know, Mr. Manly and I just got engaged in November! We had the opportunity to work with Buffy Dekmar for our engagement session and just received some pictures back. Let me just quickly go on record to say how amazingly talented and wonderful she is to work with. I am so excited to share the pictures! But for now, we have a sneak peek. Enjoy!

O' Silent Night

Hello Hello and Happy Monday all.. Who is ready for this week to be over so that we can all get the Christmas shenanigans underway? My hand is raised for yes. I hope everyone had a splendid weekend! So, as some of you know, I have been slowly getting into photography but have been doing design work for a little while. Projects include this little blog here and a new blog I am working on, www.themintowl.com . But as of late, in between wedding planning and being sick, I got to do this little guy below for my family. My two youngest brothers had the privilege of being our family models this year.

So all, Happy Holidays from my family to yours. We hope that your season is as Merry and Bright as you and that you all have a wonderful holiday.

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!!
