If we were sitting down for coffee today, I could tell you how it feels to be closing out week nine of half marathon training or how long seven straight days at the store can feel, but I think might get stuck on one piece of news…Alex and I are getting married! IMG_4879


We got engaged on Sunday by the Georgetown C&O Canal after a long, happy brunch at Founding Farmers, one Baked+Wired Chocolate Doom cupcake, one bent knee proposal, and a lot of happy tears.

I always loved that piece of D.C., but now I really have a reason to love that place. 

Alex has been my best friend and partner for six years, and I couldn’t be happier to spend the rest of our lives together.

One of Alex’s coworkers was sweet enough to photograph the ring before the proposal.
That same evening, our friends celebrated us with champagne and a backyard lit with candles. I FaceTimed my family and called my best friends, and my heart exploded with everyone’s love and kindness. Looks like this fall, I’ll be running with my fiancΓ©…

  2. That is some great news – thanks for sharing with us! I work in Washington Harbour, so all those sites — and those cupcakes — are familiar. Now I will think of you!


    1. Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. We took a similar photo a little longer after the fact but nothing beats the photo right after it happened πŸ™‚ Big, goofy smiles.
