Friends and comrades!
So, I’ve got some news. This past week, JB and I gallivanted around Paris, eating our weight in pain au chocolat, properly pronouncing oui (“waaaay”) and taking in the many marvelous sights; mostly the macabre ones, actually. (There’s a funny story in here about seeking cover in a crypt — yes, a crypt! — in the Montparnasse Cemetery during a crazy rainstorm, then emerging to find an enormous rainbow.)
We also got engaged. To be murried.
On the last night in Paris, Jeff got down on one knee in the kitchen of our tiny, seventeenth-century apartment and asked if I would marry him. I said yes.
What comes next? I’m not sure! (Marriage, eventually, I guess.) I just know that we’re home now, pretty damn happy and looking forward to the future. We’re also hugging our cats.
Thanks for being our friends, and please help us celebrate our engagement by raising a glass, wherever you are.
P.S. And nope, this isn’t becoming a wedding blog, but I will definitely be posting about the preparations, as I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing.
