A Glimpse of our Engagement Party

Last weekend, Jurg and I celebrated our engagement with some Jo'burg friends at Mythos in the Design Quarter!  After having been apart for almost a full month since getting engaged, it was great being able to re-connect with Jurg and also spend some time catching up with lots of friends I haven't seen in way too long.

We spent the evening munching on tapas, toasting with champagne, and laughing over a few glasses of delicious South African red wine.  And of course, we couldn't have asked for better company.  Having moved to Jo'burg not knowing a single soul about two and a half years ago, Jurgen and I have really been blessed with all of the new friendships that have found their way into our lives.  It turned out to be a perfect evening.

Being the terrible blogger that I am, I completely forgot to take any photos of the party - and even worse, there isn't a single photo to be found of Jurg and I together! horriblefuturewifealert.  The photos above are courtesy of the lovely miss megs - thanks megan!

I hope you're all having a wonderful beginning of the week!  I came down with a terrible case of food poisoning last night {I don't know if I'll ever be able to stomach paella again} and am starting to feel much better, but very, very sleep deprived this morning.  I can't wait for the work day to end so I can go home and crawl into bed.

Also, don't forget to enter the reader appreciation GIVEAWAY happening on my blog now.  A $30 REI gift card, Camelbak water bottle, and a couple packs of sports jelly beans are up for grabs, but the giveaway is ending tomorrow so you need to act quick!!!

New York and California re-caps to commence soon!
