May has, yet again, been a whirlwind for me. We moved into our first proper house, and while we’re still not entirely unpacked, it’s really beginning to feel like home.
In other fun news, Chris and I (finally) got engaged, with some help from our best dog, Moose! He helped me propose, and then posed for this beautiful photo. We’re very excited (and scared) about planning our fairly small, big day!
It’s gonna be awhile before we actually do the deed, but it’s nice to have a physical reminder that it’s actually happening!
That’s about it that’s going on for me. What’s happened in your month?
