Scenes from the Best Week Yet

There’s a solid chance I’ve uttered these very words on numerous occasions by now, but this time I mean it in the depths of my soul. This week was truly the best one yet… On Saturday night, my boyfriend fiancé (!!) proposed to me at our rental cottage in Muskoka. It was sweet, romantic, and perfectly us in every sense of the word. Though there’s no question that I have an affinity for all things beautiful, strangely enough I’ve never really put a ton of thought into my own wedding. So this experience has opened up a whole new world of excitement that we’ve yet to tap into. 

Although I always knew that this phase of our lives would be wonderful when it arrived, to be honest I truly didn’t anticipate the rush of incredible emotions that came along with it. Justin and I have been together for ten years now, we own a home, and a puppy. But I feel like I’ve fallen in love all over again, and despite our long history, everything already feels so different in the very best of ways. Needless to say, my heart is completely full, and I can’t wait to jump head first into this next season of our lives. As always, here’s a peek of my incredible week (in photos).
