I'm back for two days in a row, can you believe it?
I've missed it here. I've missed pouring my heart out to you. I really have.
So, I figured we should get back together.
Here's what is going on with me:
-Filled out my graduation application, to graduate in May with my AS Degree.
-Got cut down to part time at my job (unfortunately)
-Had two interviews for graphic design jobs
-Started running with the Zombies, Run! 5k Training App
-Lost 11 lbs. and 4 inches in my waist, 2 in my neck, and 1 in my hips.
-Have more energy
-Been spending a lot more time with my man.
-Oh, and there's this:
Now, now, before you freak out. This isn't an engagement ring. Dakota and I have been spending a lot more time together lately, and after much discussion we have decided we will be getting married (someday) but Dakota wants me to have some serious bling apparently (I wonder if he has been looking at my Pinterest board?) and to be honest, as much as I love and adore him, I don't think I'm ready to get married yet.
Anyway, this ring is like a pre-engagement ring, or a promise ring. Some have told me that we are way past a promise ring, but really, I think this is what a promise ring is for. Couples that love each other but may not be ready to get married, even financially. I just don't feel the need to rush. Dakota and I have a great relationship. I love him as much as I would if I shared his last name. And some day I will. But honestly, I do want a big wedding. I want my family there. I want my family there. When Dakota and I finally do get married, it's going to be a bash of EPIC proportions. And we just aren't there yet.
I do have a question, though? Which hand do I wear it on??
It feels better on my left hand, but I don't really want to field questions of when I got engaged. Opinions?!?
