I have some news...

It's official, it's legit, I'm gettin hitched!
Jason proposed shortly after I arrived in Auckland for my whirlwind spring break tour. He tried to do it super romantically and drive to one of the many amazing beaches in New Zealand. However, due to my incohernece and fatigue after a 13 hour flight I just wanted to sleep. After I woke up from a much needed rest he got down on his knee and "popped the question." I'm pretty sure I made him wait on his knee for a fair amount of time but I said yes so that's all that matters.
My spring break has been such an eventful trip. Getting engaged is an exciting thing... it's one of those things where you always wish it was you but it never actually is...Well, it's my turn.
I'm so grateful for the way Jason loves me. I find so much comfort in finding my very best friend and knowing how much he cares for me. I am a lucky girl.
We're working on the details now of the upcoming wedding. This much I do know... july, snowflake temple, the man of my dreams, for time and all eternity, an amazing engagement ring/wedding ring, and so much more!!
We're having an engagement party in New Zealand this weekend right before I head back to the States. I'm excited for that event so that I can expeirence more of the New Zealand culture that I love.
