It's been AGES since I've posted here. I had every intention of wholeheartedly keeping up this blog, but then the holidays happened and I was swept off my feet for a while. Most notably by this very important fact:
I got engaged!!
The ring is blue topaz in the center, with smoky quartz as the outer stones, with a handful of little diamonds for extra sparkle. This ring is so absolutely perfect. My grandma has been quick to remind everyone that, ever since I was little, I liked to flounce around and refuse the notion of a diamond ring and declare I only wanted my birthstone (blue topaz). And look what I got! When I got older, I became an adamant supporter of not-diamond engagement rings after learning the not-really-a-tradition "tradition" behind them, so I was thrilled! It's so unique and colorful and that's exactly what I've always wanted.
Since then, I've been caught up in a whirlwind of wedding planning, honeymoon deciding, et various. Not to mention, I graduate college this May, so I've been steadily working on my final semester as well. We also move out of our current apartment in May, so home-hunting is also on the menu. Needless to say, with everything starting up all at once, I was a bit overwhelmed and this blog was completely forgotten about. BUT! I'm back and I intend on keeping this place up now that the smoke has cleared and I've found my pace with all these new changes gearing up.
So here's to more blog posts soon!
