A Tin Can & A Big Question

I am currently spending a gloriously long weekend at our family lake home in northern Wisconsin. My family and my boyfriends family are all here and we’ve been spending lazy days swimming in the lake, sipping cocktails on the pontoon boat and eating tons of delicious food.

Right before we sat down to dinner on Friday night – only a few hours after my little sister showed up from New York as a surprise – Ryan brought me out to show me the tin can phones he had made. Tin can phones are a running joke between the two of us and so I didn’t really think much of it when, left with a little extra time on his hands, he actually made some. So I gamely took my can out into the yard to have a chat. This is what happened next….

I said yes

I am beyond excited to marry this man and see what kind of adventures lie ahead.
