Big News

Hello? Anybody there? It's been a long time, I definitely didn't keep my end of the promise about posting more often.

I've been busy, but I'm always busy, so I guess that's not a good excuse. Shout out to patient reader Allison who kindly reminded me to post this weekend.

I hope you'll welcome my return, because I've got BIG news. In August, the redhead asked me to marry him. Well, he brought me up a mountain and gave me a ring, and forgot to ask me to marry him, but I reminded him...

It all happened at Grand View Park. You might remember this photo:

There's a lot of backstory about him asking for my parents' permission via traditional Vietnamese means (including cognac) and flying all the way to NYC to see my prospective engagement ring in person(!!!) at Anna Sheffield with my friend Katy.

I said yes, and then I was so excited, I stole this French bulldog. His name is Butch.

Photos by Tina Phan, who he secretly flew to San Francisco and had hiding on that mountain.

Today I Love/Want: Heart of Gold Ring

I'm in love love love with this Heart of Gold white topaz and gold ring by One Garnet Girl on Etsy. The ring also comes in rose gold, but I'd go with yellow on this one.

This would be the perfect Valentine's gift from a dude who has some cash to spare.

Oh, I mean this would be the second best Valentine's Day gift. Second only to cake balls and cake pops made at my and Objects of Confection's upcoming Valentine's cake pop workshop on February 5th. ;)

I've been in love with St. Kilda jewelry since I saw a set of these pansy stacking rings at Eliza Page four or five years ago.
