I have so much LOVE bursting within me as I share the news that Ryan and I got engaged today!!
If you have been a beautiful tribe member for awhile you know that Ryan and I have been together for a zillion years and we’ve had our ups and downs, went from broke to our version of growing abundance, spiritual growth and so much more together.
Our relationship has been a blessing on so many levels and I’m ready to nurture it even more.
Today is the perfect time and day to enjoy the commitment at a whole new level ; ) We are SO happy.
I had no idea that Ryan would propose here in Maui…. however, my mind started to pick up some little things.
I wanted to know why he was bringing a backpack with him to the grocery store?! Little did I know that the ring was in there and he didn’t want to leave it anywhere! But I was totally caught off guard when he popped the question this morning as the waves crazy beneath our feet…
Haha! He said he was relieved he doesn’t have to carry his backpack around anymore!
This all happened before noon Maui time…
Ryan had asked me after our Starbucks time if I wanted to drive up the island to check out some new beaches that were quieter. Naturally, I was a “Heck Yea!” about to put my bikini on and get my towels ready, Ryan came out looking all good with his hair done! “OH! Are we just driving up there to take pics?” I said, not sure what was going on….
We drove up the island, checked out some beaches and apparently he was looking for the perfect beach where we were alone and could have our special moment together! I’m not sure of the name of the beach we went to because it’s off the road and you have to hike down to get to it, but it’s stunning!!! There are black rocks all around in the water, surfers out in the distance and so QUIET!
Ahhhhh, sitting with our feet in the sand is when I got a beautiful fiance…and my ring ; )
I had no idea how I was going to respond when this day came!
Would I be chill and calm?!
Would I cry?!
Would I scream?!
I’ll tell you what I did…..
I cried with the most amazing joyful tears!
If you’re engaged or married, what did you feel when you were asked?
Something so interesting happened within me, I felt a click in my heart, like a burst, where something opened up and I just cried. Ryan and I spent 5 minutes together crying!
I couldn’t understand what was happening – “Is this a dream?! Am I in a movie?!…” it was amazing!
Now, I have been thinking of this day for years and I know I wanted my social media post to announce this special moment “On Brand”. Starbucks could hire me as their #1 fan, at least #1 dark roast drinker, so obviously this is how I shared the news on social media!
This is the ring that Ryan and I had tried on at Birks and fell in love with!
Ryan had this ring custom made through our good friend, Claire’s Diamond Boutique! Check out www.boutiquediamonds.net and her Instagram Account (boutique.diamonds) for diamond inspo and amazing blingy pics! They are all to.die.for.
Of course I wanted to share this special news with you, my gorgeous friends so thank you for sharing this special day with Ryan and I!!
We’re headed to dinner and then to celebrate with some bubbly!
