Chris and I went on a lovely trip to Portland. I love the city. We didn't see very much of it, but just walking around was pretty fantastic. We ate a lot, walked a lot.. and probably most exciting...

We're engaged! We got engaged at the Japanese Gardens and it was all pretty fabulous. We've been dating for 8 years now, and everyone who I called responded with something like "FINALLY". Here are attempts of taking photos after we got engaged... We were in a rush and I had the wrong lens on... whoops!

Congrats, Lynn!

I won't even add a "finally" on there because we got that, too, when we got engaged - and we'd only been together for 3 years!

Looking forward to any wedding planning stuff you want to share.

And so nice to get engaged in Portland - what a great city :)
