Big news!

Big news!

So, the publication of Neko wasn’t the only big news I’ve been sitting on. A couple of weeks ago, James and I got engaged and we couldn’t be more excited. I’m also head over heels for my gorgeous ring, made by local artist Shimara Carlow. We commissioned it through Pieces of Eight gallery, which was a fantastic experience and I ended up with am perfect ring. I’m ridiculously picky, so James was nice enough to let me help choose. I knew I wanted something simple and timeless, but a little bit different, and I love knowing that it was made just for me.

And just in case you’re wondering, we have no idea when/where/how, but are just enjoying being engaged for now. It still hasn’t quite sunk in, so we’re calling each other “fiance” as often as possible in the hopes that eventually we’ll get used to it.
