Some of you may have seen me share this news online earlier. I’ve been keeping it offline while I told friends and family in person. But I can now tell you guys that Jon and I are getting married.
Our wedding date is set for October 25th, 2014. A little less than a year from now, during Australia’s springtime. We have booked the venue at a beautiful quiet spot in the town where we both grew up and spent time together as teenagers.
"The proposal" was a reflection of us as a couple. Sitting by a lake on a sunny day at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, I asked him to marry me, and he asked me to marry him. We both said yes!
