I know it’s been months since I posted last. I don’t tend to bake a lot when it’s 90 degrees outside, but I’ve been itching to bet back in the habit lately. And boy did I have a great reason to get back to it!
Another engagement between two amazing people, Andrea and Justin, who just happen to be great friends of mine! Now that he has proposed, I can finally say that I was so excited to get to be a small part of proposal. Justin is easily one of the most thoughtful guys I’ve ever met, and he cooked up quite a surprise weekend for Andrea in Asheville, NC. I got a message from him that started like this…
So I hope you are able to keep a secret because I am going to let you in on a big one. I am getting ready to propose to Andrea. And I need a little help from you to set the stage….
I froze. I work with Andrea and she sits pretty much right behind me. I wasn’t sure if she was there or not when I was reading the message, but I also know I am horrible at containing emotion on any level and I was not about to ruin this surprise, so I just didn’t move until she left the building. Which luckily was only 10 minutes later, ha!
The “little help” he needed was for me to delivery a surprise mystery package to her without her knowing where it came from. It was a box filled with some hints for an upcoming weekend – including one saying she needed to pack a bag and request off October 10th from work. I am a horrible liar yet somehow pulled off quite a show when she asked if I knew where the box came from that magically appeared on her desk. Who me? No, Andrea, I have no idea how that box magically appeared on your desk once you FINALLY left for a moment to run to the bathroom 😉 (Thank you to everyone on our side of the building that didn’t rat me out btw) Now I just had to keep my mouth shut for 3 more weeks. No. Big. Deal. What?!
Their weekend was a great success and these two lovebirds are going to tie the knot!!!
But first, how ’bout some custom cookies from ♥♥ Yours Truly ♥♥
They met and fell in love in Raleigh – and got engaged in Asheville – see what I did there? 😉
Wishing these two all the very very best and a lifetime of love and happiness!!
Hopefully you will all be seeing a lot more from me soon. I want to make some Halloween, Fall, and Thanksgiving cookies, so check back soon!
