Andrew and I got engaged last Friday (July 6th) in my parents' backyard in Chicago. It's one of my favorite places to be and the whole thing was perfect. We will be sharing the story soon but we're still getting our heads around the fact that we're engaged!

We wanted to take some time before announcing it to the internet and I want to thank all our family and friends who helped keep our secret.

As you know, my life is far from private and I really wanted this to just be between us for as long as we could. So we held off telling people for a couple of reasons. First and foremost I wanted to make sure everyone close to me knew before the world knew. I have had some really close friends get engaged and I found out via social media. Honestly, it's heartbreaking ... you know? So I didn't want anyone to find out about us that way. I also wanted to tell people face-to-face at work. They are like my second family and I wanted them to be a part of this.

Just about everyone at work knows, and I told you guys yesterday on the blog, and now here we are. I will be sharing details about the ring soon, but -- my goodness -- do I love it. I'm hoping Andrew will write our engagement story for the blog because I think it's great to hear his side of it. And of course I will overload you guys with wedding content so no worries there.

Now what? Anyone have any advice? Like the BEST advice I need to know?? I'm new to this and kind of confused where to start...

Love you guys!
