Will You...

Monday, October 24, 2011

You've all had those weeks that thoroughly trounce you, right? Well I've found that unholy quantities of Indian food on Friday night will really speed up recovery, as does a handsome new fiancé and the rose gold bauble he picked! I'm so delighted that I finally get to spill!

So besides staring idly at my ring finger, which John says is ridiculous but I'm fairly certain he finds endearing, this weekend was just like any other. It was, of course, 20 degrees too warm for October activites here in San Francisco, so I drank apple cider and we carved pumpkins (with our initials, naturally). We indulged in an outrageous cheese filled with truffles and paired with a rosé cremant, and celebrated another Golden Hurricane win while I fretted about what one wears to Tulsa, Oaklahoma (any feedback would be appreciated–we leave Friday). But best of all, we laughed, we held hands, and we smiled.

I hope you all did plenty of smiling this weekend, too!
