Things are quite a bit better now. The sun is finally shining and today we walked Calle Florida and Avenido de Mayo and saw Plaza de Mayo and the Congreso building which is beyond words stunning. Spent some time on the rooftop deck soaking up the sun and now we're getting ready for a night on the town!
Hope you all had an absolutely amazing Thanksgiving holiday! We definitely missed our families and all the yummy food.
Adios for now!

Sunday we are having our engagement party up at Corey's parent's house. We are having "bubbles and brunch" and will be celebrating with a casual party filled with mimosas, homemade biscotti and scones, and tons of other delicious food. I am so excited to have everyone in one place to celebrate! It's going to be a great weekend. Hope you have an amazing couple of days! Talk Monday :)

We got a special card in the mail to wish us congratulations on our engagement and I loved the words so much I had to share them with you.
(noun, verb, and everything in between)
1: holding hands, walking in the rain, and not even knowing it’s raining 2: being there for each other (no matter what) 3: that certain look 4: trust 5: passion 6: the best kind of friendship 7: gets better with time 8: a fairy tale that does come true
I’ve never felt so connected to the words and message on a card. They’re so simple, but Corey and I relate to every single one of these. My heart filled with emotion when I read it, and it made me think about how happy I am to have found the person I am going to spend the rest of my life with. Honestly, for a time in my life I really wasn’t sure if I’d be lucky enough to experience this kind of true, amazing love. To sit back and think about how I’m experiencing it every day and will get to every day for the rest of my life, for better or worse, makes me happier than I could every explain in words (and I’m a writer, so that’s saying a lot!).
Alright, enough of the sappy stuff! Hopefully that didn’t bore you. Up next, photos from our weekend in Antwerp—finally!

My giant cup of cocoa came on a shiny silver tray with a bowl full of freshly made whipped cream (so rich. so delicious!), pure sugar crystals and two of the most buttery homemade shortbreak cookies I'll probably ever eat. If this is how all hot chocolate in Amsterdam comes, I'm pretty sure I've died and gone to heaven.
I hate that I am thousands and thousands of miles away from you today, but I have no doubt that we will have many, many more anniversaries together. I love you more than I ever knew possible. Thank you for being you!

Amsterdam is such a beautiful city. It's so exciting to be in Europe. I almost forgot how quaint and historic everything feels. I have been taking the train into the office, which is located in a suberb of Amsterdam called Hilversum. I feel like such a big city girl taking the train. Centraal Station is bustling with people in the morning. The energy is amazing and everyone looks so chic. I am feeling so inspired by all the gorgeous coats and boots all these girls wear! I can't wait to go shopping :)
I'll share more later, but for now I just wanted to say I'm here!
