Well, not literally, we’re not doing rings. And I was actually the one who proposed.
But the point is…WE’RE GETTING MARRIED!
I’m so glad I can finally share this exciting news with you, bloggy friends! This was obviously the secret I mentioned last week, and what kept me away from the blog the week before. It was sooooo hard for me to keep it off the blog until we’d told all our people, but we’ve finally made the rounds and now this news is OUT! BOOM!
A. and I are so happy about it. We had talked about getting married before, but always in terms of “eventually,” “when we’re more financially established,” “someday,”…
But a week and a half ago, while playing a game of Diablo III and engrossed in a random conversation about what we do and don’t like about wedding ceremony traditions, it was suddenly right. So I asked. And he said yes!!!
I know, that is the least romantic proposal story ever. But it’s very us, so whatevs. Memories.
Here’s the really fun bit: we don’t want to wait until we can have a big fancy wedding. Getting married is about US, and now that we’ve said “yes,” we want to make it official because we’re crazy lovebirds. So we’re going to the courthouse IN NOVEMBER with just a few friends and family members and tying the knot quick and dirty. !!!!!
Which is not to say there won’t be fanfare. I’m still getting a dress and some flowers and fancy shoes. Annnd we will be doing a “real” ceremony and reception/party at some point next year. That means I get to plan TWO weddings. Something I’m totally excited about right now but will probably regret later on…
So what does this mean for Jade and Fern? Obviously, there will be some amount of wedding DIY-ing and blogging going on. But I promise to try not to let it take over, this is not a wedding blog!
Please remind me of that promise later when the “real” ceremony is happening and I’m losing my mind.

I’m not sure how to wrap this up because I’m so giddy that coherent sentences aren’t really happening, so instead I’ll just show you this outtake from the mini-shoot I did for this post:
Happy Tuesday! And DON’T FORGET: today is the last day to enter to win a Loom & Mill pillow! You have until Midnight EST. Go go go!
