guys. i am engaged. (!!!!) to the love of my life, my person, mi media naranja. there are few words that describe the euphoria of knowing you’re going to be with someone forever. there are such a range of emotions, describing how i feel right now is really hard. i guess it’s a mix of excitement, giddiness, relief, and a little bit of, “oh shit what are we doing?!”. overall though, it is really the best feeling ever.anyway, here’s what went down. it happened on september 26th at the salt lake city, ut airport. (in the terminal 1 baggage claim, you might know). i had been away from tyler for a week because of a trip back east, and i guess for anyone looking to get proposed to, i suggest taking like a week away to really decide how you feel about one another. yes, my trip was great, but it was also THE LONGEST WEEK OF MY LIFE. as soon as i exited my plane i basically sprinted out of the airport to find tyler, who i assumed was just waiting in the car. when i got out though, there he was, standing by the baggage claim holding flowers, looking around unassuming and not seeing me until i was about 4 inches from his face. i kissed him and hugged him and wouldn’t let go. he somehow managed to peel me off of him, looked me in the eye, and said something to the effect of, “since i got home on wednesday there has been something i knew i needed to do”… and then he was on his knee! and pulling out a ring and asking me to marry him! and i barely let him finish before i said, “yes! oh my hell! yes!” and pulled him off the ground and continued barraging him with kisses… pictured below. (i don’t think he minded) also, can i say how thankful i am that something told me to dress like a civilized human and put on a bra despite my 14 hour travel day?
(thanks to tyler’s sister, cassidy, for sneakily taking pics across the airport. i never thought i would want photographs of my engagement, but now that i have some, i actually can’t stop looking at them.)and a selfie for good measure! i love you, tyler kimball. i could say a lot of things about how i feel about you, but out of fear i might make other people vomit, i’ll save em.
so this is happiness.
