I’m going to make this a quick entry, since I’m writing it on my cell phone. Back in June, Nick and I were heading home from San Francisco and we ended up giving up our seats for $1000 in vouchers. About 7 weeks ago we decided to go ahead and use the vouchers over Labor Day weekend for a weekend getaway to Mexico. Knowing we’d be back in November for my best friend from high school, Caitlin’s wedding we decided to do something totally different. We booked a room at Casa De Las Olas in Tulum- a 5 room hotel. In addition to Labor Day weekend being a 3-day weekend, it’s also when Nick and I celebrate our anniversary. So anyway,I’ll write more about the trip and the hotel when we get home as this has already surpassed more than I can tolerate to type on my phone, but the exciting news, which I’m sure you all can guess at this point: Nick proposed! Of couse I said yes! The full story of how it happened will be in the next blog entry. Until then, adios!
- Hi there! If you are curious to know who I am, I'm a urban planner and urban designer by my graduate education. I was an English major in college, but the grammar slowly fades from me, so forgive my grammatical errors, but please feel free to let me know if I made a mistake. I will promptly fix it! I'm a novice runner, training for my very first half-marathon. I'm recently engaged. I love to cook. I love to plan. I love to make lists and organize. I can be a bit of a control freak, but I'm okay with that. I'm also known to over-commit myself and I'm learning to say the word 'no'. I love to travel and I hate to fly, but I fly in order to travel. I reside in Dallas, TX with my fiance, Nick, and our adorable adopted Persian cat, Dr. Frederick Stonewall Jackson (or just Jackson for short); but the three of us will find a home in any city or town that this crazy journey of life takes us to.
