This is one Mother's Day I will never forget...because yesterday in Ogunquit, Maine, I got engaged!
It happened on the Marginal Way Walkway and it was magical...
we ended the night in New Hampshire in this fairytale cove...
The first photograph of the lilacs was taken before we started our walk. Because it had just rained, they smelt incredible and I couldn't help but notice the leaf looked like a heart? I love it. Also, the weekend ended perfectly with a trip to several antique shops in the area.
Out of the stacks of books in one store, I was drawn to a 1945 copy of Emily Post's Etiquette: The Blue Book of Social Usage. The book is torn and weathered and has a section on Engagements. And as we drove home today, I read out loud in the car the chapter on Engagements...it was a hoot to read! My how things have changed...I love that first line...FIRST DUTY OF THE ACCEPTED SUITOR. WOW. So hilarious!
To make things even more blissful, a long time friend also got engaged this weekend! Congrats Lyndsay!
I have to say, I'm just smitten with this man...as my mother would say, he is a keeper.
