So, ya, I'm engaged

If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or in general just KNOW me, then you probably already know that I got engaged on Tuesday.

You might have even seen this picture and/or my ring.

What you might not know yet is the story.

Back from the land of sun and sand

Me at Flamingo Beach, St. Maarten
We're back.
Belatedly, but we're back.

And I'm tanned. I know, big shock.

You know, I wasn't looking forward to this vacation. What with all the work stress and other stressful events going on in life just before this, I was ready to just do a staycation. I was loathing the early-morning trek to the airport. The stress of travelling with someone who gets stressed about travelling.

But it all turned out great. We spent too much money. We got a bit of sun. I got a pretty bauble. We swam and snorkelled and drove zodiaks and slept and ate way too much and met the most wonderful people.

We definitely took way too many pictures of sunsets and not enough of me enjoying the sun and sand so that I could use that for my blog photo. Quelle domage!

But we're back. And I'm already looking forward to next year.
