Being engaged is kinda fun

You get lots of stuff:

White wine

Chocolates (as you can see, these didn't last very long)

Flowers

A wedding box

Stuff for the wedding box

Wedding books

Wedding post-it notes, a wedding datebook, and a wedding journal

Pearl earrings and a pearl necklace

A heart-framed picture

A book with art from Georgia O'Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz

My mom bought me the book because of my fiance’s connection to the artists.

Being engaged is also fun because you get to do photo shoots. Here are some pictures from ours:

It’s also cool because lots of people ask if they can help. Like my aunt offered to make Greek pastries for the reception, a friend is doing my wedding website, and my sister is keeping an eye out for bridesmaid and wedding dresses.

AND, my aunts,  cousin, and mom took my fiance and I out for an engagement lunch. We went to The Retreat in Liverpool, NY and had delicious meals (I had the quiche and salad special and he had the stuffed chicken breast and broccoli).

Lots of wedding-related things were accomplished this past week. For instance, we booked the ceremony and reception sites, wrote up an engagement announcement, and picked out photos we want to include on the wedding website. Also, we edited our guest list. The next steps are doing the save the dates and sending those out, writing up the story of how we met (also for the wedding website), and narrowing down bridesmaid dresses.
