Bridal Hair

As you all may know, I got engaged almost 2 weeks ago and of course I am already starting to plan the wedding and create inspiration boards. I will go ahead and warn you all that there will be many wedding posts to come. I already know that the hardest decision for me will be how to do my hair and I am sure that I will change my min many times, but for now I love the hairstyles below.

I'm Engaged

Sunday was the best day of my life! Stelio proposed and I was completely surprised! He got our goddaughter to give to give a card that read "Can I be your flower girl? (turn around)" and after I read the card I turned saw him on his knee. Of course I was so shocked and happy and I screamed and cried and cried some more and once the ring was on my finger our families came out of their hiding spots to congratulate us. And I am so happy he had someone taking pictures the whole time. It was the perfect proposal.
