A big helping of happiness

Today's feature on The Chocolate Bunny is called: "Why Valerie has had a smile plastered to her face these past few days." And here it is:

Laurent actually asked me to marry him almost two weeks ago, but I was waiting to tell my best friend in person before spreading the news on the net. I was finally able to see her yesterday, so... there you have it.

I am deliriously happy, and very excited about everything that is to come. There wasn't a doubt in my mind when I said "yes" to his proposal, and I'm absolutely certain I won't have any trouble saying "yes" at the church. I'd say "yes" tomorrow without any qualms. But we've agreed to have a real wedding (although that's pretty much the only thing that's been settled - details are still up in the air), so I get to enjoy being engaged for several months, while we sort everything out.

I do know one thing, though: I will not be making my own wedding cake. Not that I don't enjoy a challenge, but I think I'll have other things to worry about by then.


  1. Ooo Oooo that photo is a gem! Congratulations to you both and all your family!
    Other things to focus on than cake ;-) probably.

  2. OK so I knew already...but had not seen the ring. I am so HAPPY for the both of you. You are so amazing together. Congratulations!

  3. Congratulations! I'm really happy for you both. :)

  4. Congratulations! So happy for you both! And nice ring :-)

  5. CONGRATZ! I'm very happy for both of you :).

  6. Congratulations! Fantastic news. Good plan not to make your own wedding cake too. I found it quite stressful to make someone else's!

  7. Ooooo congratulations for the both of you!! What fabulous news!!! And well, if you need a weddingphotographer, I am your girl... :) It's just unfortunate you live so far away...! I've been doing weddings all summer and it's always fun and for some reason I had a lot of people I already knew getting married. Double fun.
    I love your ring!

  8. Toutes mes félicitations Valérie! Il n'y a rien que j'aime plus que les préparatifs du mariage (à part le jour J, bien sûr)! Je vous souhaite un magnifique mariage et surtout beaucoup de bonheur dans votre nouvelle aventure!

  9. CONGRATS valerie!! I'm so happy for you!! The ring is beautiful! Wish you the best of luck on the wedding planning <3 <3 <3
