One Moment: The Ring

This week has been a whirlwind for me. But as things get more hectic, crazy, busy and just plain nutty – I keep thinking of the moment that started it all – when Matt proposed to me last Friday at the Durham Fair.

Despite the rain and things not going entirely as he originally planned, it was everything that we could have wanted it to be – very very us. We were both glowing the rest of the day, enjoying our deep fried delicious food and smiling from ear to ear and I wouldn’t have changed the day for anything.  I find myself staring at my new beautiful shiny ring (from Shirlee at Lichen and Lychee) and just soaking in the happiness.

Now, as we work to move in to a new apartment, plan a wedding and keep up with our day jobs (on top of working on fallenpeach) and try to sane throughout it all I keep thinking back to the look on his face and that day and it makes me smile all over again.


OM is a weekly meet up that promotes living in the moment.  Whether funny, sad, ridiculous, or banal, looking for these moments can promote balance in our lives. Find out more information here.
