i guess this shouldn't really have surprised me, but for some reason it did. 

i am overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and happiness i received upon announcing our engagement. 

i always have known i am blessed by a life full of wonderful friends and family. somehow, along all the places i've landed, i have been surrounded by incredible people and formed lifelong friendships with some of the most amazing people on the planet (imho). and their replies to my emails (or the squeals and hugs of the ones i was lucky enough to tell in person) brought tears to my eyes again and again. their words of happiness, support and cheer bowled me over. and this worries me.

already the sappiest of saps in normal life, and the most emotional of the kleenex-wielding saps at weddings, i know i am going to be in trouble on the big day.

my friend nellie (who is normally cool as a cucumber) told me after her wedding, how suprised she was at how overwhelming it was to walk in the church and be surrounded by literally all your friends and family, all in one place, all there to support you and celebrate with you. i can only imagine that the response to sharing our news is going to be magnified ten fold on our wedding day when i walk down the aisle.

hello waterproof mascara, it's anna. we need to talk.
