I’m really digging engaged life!

I’m not disappeared! We have been so busy getting ready for the wedding that I scarcely have time for coffee!

I’m very proud because we have made our own invitations – I’ll post a DIY up for you guys and give you specific examples in my next post. It’s kind of great.

We decided that Black Balsam (one of our favorite places on Earth) would be a splendid place to take our engagement photos. My brother, Nathan, was kind enough to take them for us. Before you ask, no he is not a professional. However, I think he needs to re-think it and become one.  We went up around 6:00 in order to catch the sunset. We were a little dismayed when clouds rolled in and we thought it might not happen. But, Abba made it like magic! It was possibly one of the most gorgeous sunsets ever to be beheld!

The last one is my absolute favorite. Several of these will have to be framed because they are just too lovely!

I’ll be back later today (gasp! two posts in one day?!) with the promised DIY!

Introducing the future Mr. & Mrs. Horton!!!!!

We have a string ring for now. We haven’t found a jeweler yet to cast Andrew’s design so it’s still on paper. So he asked me, I said yes, and he tied a wee string around my finger from our Brazilian blanket.  It’s rather perfect!

We are so excited!

Oh goodness!!

It’s official! Andrew is back in the US and currently in the air flying from Atlanta to Asheville where I will pick him up!


I’m basically over the moon excited about seeing him again. Seeing him. Not just talking to him on the phone or over skype but really seeing him. I get to play with his beard soon!  Woohoo!

Happy Monday, friends. I’m off to pick up my love!

And there’s gold falling

and there’s gold falling from the ceiling of this world

falling from the heartbeat of this girl.

I have 4 days my friends. 4 days until my love is returning to me from Africa. I’m beside myself I’m so excited!
