Happy Engagement-aversary!

Ok, ok! I know I said that this week would be marathon week, but today is also an extra special day for me because one year ago today, fiancé and I got engaged!

Let’s take a walk back through memory lane from last year, shall we?


On Sunday October 4th last year fiancé and I had just come back home to Philadelphia from celebrating a weekend in Hershey, PA for a friend’s wedding.

It was an amazing weekend. We spend the weekend doing one of our favorite things – wine tastings! We went to lots of vineyards in the Hershey area and had a blast!

Jackson came too!

We also tied in the wine tasting with one of my other favorite things – Chocolate! Seriously, when you are in Hersey, you clearly have to go to Hershey Chocolate World!

After our fun weekend in the happiest, chocolate-iest place on Earth, fiancé and I came home Sunday morning and he suggested we spend the lovely day at the Philadelphia Zoo.

I would later find out that fiancé had plans to go up in the Philadelphia Zoo balloon and propose up there, but he had been waiting to do that for a month and every time he wanted to go, the balloon wasn’t up!

After our fun day at the zoo, fiancé told me that he had made dinner plans for us somewhere special.

We had dinner at the WaterWorks Restaurant in Philadelphia and watched Boathouse Row go from this:

It was an amazing meal and after dinner fiancé took me down to the water’s edge and proposed. Woohoo!

Obviously I came back here the next day to get picture of the exact spot it happened!

I also documented what I wore that evening. That’s totally normal right?? Sassy pink heels, anyone?

It was an amazing whirlwind weekend that I will never forget and I am so thankful that I have my blog to document amazing events like our engagement! It’s so fun to look back at all the pictures and all the memories.

I also know that since we have a long engagement, not many people get to celebrate a year of being engaged. Next year this time we will be married and looking forward to celebrating our first wedding anniversary as Husband and Wife!

But that is still a few months away, so for now it’s very exciting for me to get to say “Happy Engagement-aversary” to Fiancé today!
