Engagment Anniversary Afterglow

Engagement AfterglowTime has flown by in the blink of a diamond sparkle! It's hard to believe that it's been exactly a year since our adventure in Arizona, where Justin surprised me by proposing under the stars. The picture to the right was taken after I flitted into the hotel so I could see the ring glitter in more than moonlight.

Life has been a whirlwind, especially this last month with combining our two houses into one home. We have a treasure chest full of ideas for our wedding, but no decisions on when or where to walk the plank - just that the special day be pirate themed! I already found a $50 gown fit for a queen wench. I won't even have to worry about wearing something blue because the fabric of the corset is a cerulean and golden yellow swirl jacquard. I can't show a photograph openly for fear of Ogre eyes, but just ask, and I'll whisper the link in an email.

Days Inn Courtyard in Camp VerdeI can, however, share more images of Arizona landscapes and tourist attractions! To the left is the Days Inn courtyard the day after we got engaged in it, illuminated in sunlight and overlooking Camp Verde.

I didn't blog about the rest of the vacation as I'd hoped would happen, but I am going to post more of my arsenal of over 300 photos in the Wordless Wednesdays to come. The captures might not be as amusing as yesterday's hike Over A Mountain in Tucson, but they are pretty, so stay tuned.
