The mystery weekend trip was planned with a hidden agenda and yesterday, Ned and I came back home engaged! I’d be lying if I said I didn’t know it was going to happen but it was still the most perfect weekend and I cannot stop smiling!
He surprised me with a trip up north to Lake Superior. One of our favorite places with the most gorgeous, rough, moody scenery. Cloudy grey most days but sunrises and sunsets that can’t be seen anywhere near a city.
We stayed in a little cabin inches away from the water. So close you could hear the waves lapping from inside. Ice-covered black rocks and pine trees all around. It was quiet. It was small. It was cozy and comfortable.
Even though I knew what was happening it was still ten times better than what I could have imagined. Not because of the event and mystery of it…but because it made it clear that he knows me so well.
I’m sure I’ll be sharing some peeks of fun planning details with you guys when the time comes. One of the best things about the whole thing was that instead of a traditional ring, Ned gave me a really simple band and said that he wanted to design our rings together (maybe even using metals from Minnesota)! Eep! This, my friends, is possibly the most exciting/intimidating thought of all but I’m prepared to face the challenge. (Not like I don’t have a collection of “rings i like” saved away already…). I’ll make sure to share all of that too!
