Things I Love Thursday: Really, Really Big News!


I’m engaged!

Yes, it’s true. I am SO EXCITED to be marrying the LOVE OF MY LIFE, a man who makes me laugh & always looks after me. We’re so in love, & every night is like a party. He’s my best friend & I trust him with my life. We got engaged on Saturday, under an enormous moose head (!!!)… Would you expect anything less?! That same afternoon, we bought a new/old car to start our marriage… A beautiful 1951 Chevy Bel-Air!

Oh, um, can we talk about my ring for a second?! It’s a platinum art deco beauty, procured from Doyle & Doyle… I recommend them! I absolutely adore it, & it looks sublime with the wedding band we chose.


My parents are coming to New York City at the end of July & we’re marrying at City Hall, along with all our fantastic GLBTQ brothers & sisters! The heat is on, & I am kicked into bridezilla overdrive!

It’s going to be a BIG month, so please understand if I’m not my crazy updating self… I will probably be running around the city, trying to source obscure types of glitter & enormous headpieces!

I’m so excited to share this news with you… Stay tuned for my adventures in becoming a Mrs.!!! (Oh my god!)
