the details.

there are a few things i never want to forget about these first few days.
they are the tiniest details, but they hold tremendous weight.

my whole body shaking as i hugged justin & said yes.
how excited we were right after the fact.
kicking my tights-and-boots-feet back & forth in the freezing air
as we called our family & friends while sitting around the lady of the mist.
taking showers quickly so i can put my ring right back on.
my ring looking more and more beautiful to me every single day when i wake up.
an entire 24 hours of shock.
day two: not being able to take my eyes off my ring.
the 'let the planning begin' date with my mom.
just the unexplainable cloud of happiness
that's floating around me wherever i go.

i never want to forget how i feel right now.

* i'm still working on our engagement story. it's soon to come!
