big news...

... I'm engaged! The love of my life and man of my dreams has (finally) proposed. And, as if there were any doubts, I said yes. I am so excited and so happy and can't believe I'm already starting to plan. It happened at Millennium Park on a chilly Saturday. I never thought I would cry, but as soon as he got down on one knee and before he even opened his mouth, I was balling. It was special and it was perfect. And it's true - you never remember a word of what they say. I hope you have all been well too!

las vegas holds a special place in my heart. i have been there more times that i can count and lived there twice. it was a no-brainer to spend a mini vacation there this past week. the food was fantastic as always, i saw my favorite cirque (LOVE), and even won my rent money on a lucky spin on the wheel of fortune machine. now it's back to reality...

As promised, here are my trip photos from China. I worked everyday except 1 while I was there so there is a lack a places (only two pictured here). The first set is from a traditional shopping market in Shanghai and the second is from a buddhist temple in the Xianhu Botanical Gardens sin Shenzhen. I also visited Hong Kong but I do not have any photos to share.
