Quick Hawaii Update: Trav Proposed!

I know I don't talk too much about my relationship with Trav on the ol'blog, but for those of you who follow me on Instagram, you probably see him more often than you'd like! 

Anyway, I'm going to keep this short and sweet since I'm on vacation, but last night, Travis proposed!

We had spent the day on an amazing 8 mile hike with my family along the coastline and then resting and relaxing back at the house. Travis asked me to go swim in the ocean with him, so we headed across the street to a little beach (called baby beach) - and no one was there but us! We went swimming and then afterwards he got down on one knee and asked me a super important question while holding out my dream ring. It couldn't have been more perfect. I've always wanted a proposal at home over takeout, or somewhere secluded with just us, and I couldn't imagine a more perfect place than this little tiny beach on vacation in Kauai. 

Here are a couple of pictures from after the proposal (no, I can't smile any bigger, and yes, my cheeks still hurt from non-stop smiling):

The ring, as I mentioned, is absolutely perfect. It is my birthstone (aquamarine), which is what I've always wanted, with lots of little diamonds on a white gold band. And it couldn't be a better fit - for not knowing what size I was, he did a phenomenal job! 

I was planning on coming by tomorrow to tell you all how thankful I am for this community, but instead I'm going to take the rest of the week off from blogging to really enjoy this vacation. I'll be back Monday. Until then, know that coming here to this online place and having friends like all of you has been just incredible. So many of you congratulated Travis & me on Instagram or Facebook last night, and it really warmed our hearts. Thank you for coming here and checking in - what started as a fashion blog has really become an online home for me - so thank you.
