We're Engaged!

sparkle

I'm so happy to announce that my boyfriend and I got engaged last Friday!! It was so romantic and I couldn't be more happy! The perfect start to the holidays. Let the planning begin. :)

The ring was designed by my fiancĂ© and our friend who owns a non-profit diamond business: The Clarity Project. They source only fair trade diamonds and invest all profits into mining communities. It makes it even more special!
