Its been one crazy whirlwind of a month! Both great, and not so great. But lets focus on the great for now!
The most exciting news – I got engaged!!! Ryan proposed 12/15 and it was the most perfect, thoughtful night I could have ever hoped for. I am beyond grateful and excited knowing that I have such an amazing person with me through all of life’s ups and downs!
Our puppy, Bagel, is doing great! She is back home with me in Minnesota for the holidays while Ry is in Louisville, but she loves the snow! On that note – I have the best parents in the world.
I wasn’t planning on being able to go home for Christmas because the price to rent a car was insane and Bagel is too big to travel on the train (and we aren’t ready for airports yet even though she is an ESA and can fly with me).
But, my dad knows how important it is for my mom and family to all be together over the holidays so he insisted on driving all the way down to Chicago (5 1/2 hours) to pick us up, and then we drove right back to Minnesota that same day! And we will do the same thing on the way home next week.
Talk about a dedicated and loving father right?! So lucky 🙂
