Last night, I got engaged!!!!!!!!! I am still sort of speechless. We've been together since I was 17 years old. I have spent 1/3 of my life knowing I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. But now, its real. Totally and completely real and I couldn't be more happy. giddy. excited. He is my best friend in the entire world.
I won't go into the details but it included our 8 year anniversary and a ring that prematurely dropped out of his pocket. Perfect. Couldn't have been more perfect. 

And now its Wednesday morning, Spence went to work and I'm expected to get up and go to class like nothing happened. I'm not sure I can do it! Wish me luck! I'm going to be distracted by something way to pretty to pay attention to anything today.
