I don’t even know where to start. All I can say is I couldn’t have dreamed of a better night.

Back story:

Cameron had told me that he couldn’t get my a gift for our anniversary because his last paycheck literally flew out the window of his car. I told him that gifts don’t have to cost money, they come from the heart, but felt very guilty and bratty for wanting something material to always remember our 5th year anniversary. He then continued to play down the importance of the night by not wanting to do anything more than a dinner date. Again I’m a brat. So my thoughts were that the evening would be pretty basic. WRONG. Cameron knew he could make me less suspicious by acting as though the night was nothing special. We had plans to go to Discovery Bay to spend time with family and friends as an anniversary vacation with the day of our anniversary being the first full day on the river. He had told me to pack a nice dress, which he just so happen to have bought a new lovely white dress from Asos for me a week before.

 

September 5th:

We spent the day out on the boat and as the evening came closer I grew more curious, wanting to know the plan. I was told to go get ready before sunset and that we would be going out on the boat for a little sunset cruise. On the boat we admired the view until he asked me if I wanted some champagne. Behind us was a little table with champagne and roses. Romantic! As we pulled up to the dock to head back to the house, Cameron says that he needs to ask me a question. He begins to fumble around with something behind his back and my heart started to flutter. “You know how much you mean to me right? I’d be nothing without you. You are my everything and I love you so much… *pulls out a little box and drops to one knee* will you marry me?” I cried and cried and cried. How he understood my “yes” is beyond me, I was on another planet. I hugged him before he could even get the ring on my finger and when he did he told me that it was his grandmother’s and it was going to be too big. Sure enough it falls right off my finger and we both scramble to pick it up off the deck. Classic spaz couple. The ring is absolute perfection, been in the family for over 100 years. I could not be more honored to wear it.

So that was my night. The story I will tell to my kids and their kids. The ring I will forever proudly wear. To be with the man that I have always known to be my forever and always.

Kimono Obsession 8.25.14

I could have an entire closet of these beauties. It doesn’t hurt that retailers like Forever 21 make it easy to have a colorful collection without breaking the bank. I can promise you all one thing; kimonos will have a long life in the trending pool. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see them holding on all the way till next summer. I’m definitely ok with that!
