Last week I went on a family trip to Rhode Island for the 4th of July and to attend a family reunion. We stayed at a different house than usual because there were 10 of us plus a dog (my sister's!) and we needed a place that would accommodate that. This meant being a bit further from the beach than our normal spot. We were only a quarter mile down the road so we could bike to the beach but that's not easy when it's one of the hottest weeks of the year.  BUT we had this really fun rocky beach area down the street that I had to take photos at.

Also, you may have noticed something different about my hands. Rather than wearing all my rings I'm wearing one beautiful ring. Yep, I'm engaged! My boyfriend proposed a few weeks ago while we were camping in Vermont. I wanted to wait until we were able to tell most of our family members before sharing it publicly.

You don't see much of my fiancé on the blog apart from his talent as a photographer, but he makes occasional appearances over on my Instagram. How lucky was I to find a handsome, caring man who just happens to love taking photos and will let me take as many shots as we need for posts. I'm not one to get too mushy or personal on here - and I won't start now - but I will say that I'm extremely happy to have found Christian and to be able to spend the rest of my life with him.

And for those of you that missed it on Instagram, here's the photo I shared last week.
