Bill and I are so blessed with wonderful friends and roommates. An engagement party was thrown in our honor about a week ago and so many people turned out for the event. It was wonderful to see our friends from different areas of our lives come together into one room and spend time in each other's company.
The plan was drinks and food and to be with each other, no agenda, no set ideal on what was supposed to happen. We celebrated in our own low-key way, and it was so perfect for me and Bill's personalities. Some people want a night out, some people want a big fancy dinner, we just wanted to be surrounded by friends and family!
I specifically bought this white lacy shirt for our engagement party, which did not feel as silly when I saw these pictures. I am still in shock that I am going to be a bride and I am going to start planning a wedding very soon. I knew it was coming, but it honestly feels so surreal to be in love and have found the man I am going to marry. While some people feel they are owed love, I never thought it would come my way and I am so blown away by the person Bill is and the person he has helped me to become.
When I was surrounded by these lovely people (and many more that I do not have pictures with), I realized how God has been blessing me for years. He has brought me incredible friends and a perfect man for me and answered so many prayers. I am so thankful for each of them, and am excited to see where life takes us all!
Love you guys! Thanks for the food and the party and the gifts. We celebrate everyday we have you all around and can't imagine life without each of you :)
