Happy New Year!

2012! I'm really excited to get a fresh start on everything. Ironically, our apartment is the biggest disaster since we first moved in here. Our luggage and gifts from returning from Florida are dumped everywhere around the house. That doesn't sound too bad, but you really have no idea. I can't even walk in our bedroom right now.

Eric bought me a really nice juicer for Christmas, and I am planning to use it a lot. This morning I made some kale, apple, and beet juice. My body is in desperate need of a food makeover. I think I've had more french fries in the past month than I usually eat in months. Last week I even had french fries fried in duck fat for the first time (delicious).

The biggest news to be excited about is...

Eric proposed on New Year's Eve! Saturday was gorgeous. We woke up and went for a walk to Whole Foods to eat breakfast and then we continued walking to the pedestrian bridge. The bridge has been my favorite place in Austin since I've moved here. The bridge itself is pretty and the view on both sides is beautiful. We sat on a bench and he said a couple of really sweet things and then got down on one knee. A couple of runners saw and start hollering. It was super cute. I cried. The ring is an heirloom from Eric's side of the family and that's a green diamond (it looks more turquoise in bright light) in the center!

P.S. One of my resolutions is to post much more frequently on the blog!
