To start out, you may have noticed something on the homepage that it a little bit different. I replaced the category of Art and added a Wedding page! Why you may ask? Well, that is because I am (drum roll, please)… ENGAGED! Jarod and I got engaged on October 27, 2017.
The most frequently asked question by anyone is the obvious, “How did he ask?” So, of course, here is the story:
Jarod and I have been remodeling our future home, an old Amish house. We were inside the house discussing possibilities of what we were going to do with our downstairs bathroom, because we weren’t sure if the size of the room as it is now was going to be big enough. We decided to take a break and discuss options while we ate dinner (a gourmet McDonald’s meal haha!), when Jarod told me to go look in the bathroom. I walked over to the bathroom and looked around the room, while Jarod went into the pantry before coming to the bathroom.
I was standing in the bathroom remarking about how beautiful the view is from that bathroom window and how it is ironic that our bathroom has such a beautiful view when I turned around and saw Jarod down on one knee. Of course, my eyes filled with tears, especially when he said, “Grace Ellen, will you marry me?” I obviously said yes and hugged him, where we both ended up crying tears of happiness.
We have officially decided on a date: December 21, 2019. The reason this date is so far from now is because I want to finish my associate’s degree before we get married. Since I have such a long time until we get married, I have decided to make a Wedding page on here, where I can share different decisions, show DIYs, and where we can all bounce ideas off of each other. I will share posts ranging from bridal shows, wedding colors, bridal showers, center pieces, all the way to different fitness plans for getting in shape for the wedding. I have also been considering creating a youtube channel and vlogging the wedding planning process/ just life with Jarod and I. If anyone is interested in that idea, let me know! Also, if anyone has any specific wedding posts they would like to see, of course, let me know on that one too! We will be getting engagement photos this weekend, so be prepared for a post. 😉
