Before I actually got engaged, I always thought people’s reactions to others getting engaged was so strange. Why are you congratulating someone on their engagement? It’s like saying “hey, congrats on finding someone that loves you enough to want to be with you forever…” Ha. Don’t get me wrong, it is a very exciting time in a person’s life, just the reaction is kind of… weird.
Now that I have gotten engaged and received my fair share of congratulations, I see things differently. I love being congratulated – not on finding an amazing person to spend the rest of my life with that loves me just as much as I love them – but on this next chapter of life! There is so much to look forward to and I am so excited to be able to share it with someone so special to me.
With all of that being said, I am a lucky person. Not just for my fiancé but for my friends as well! I love that they wanted to celebrate with me and join in on my happiness! So, I thought I’d share how they spoiled me with gifts! (I appreciate all their love and support, but gifts are always nice too!)
