It’s happened…

After two years of dating, one long-distance over thousands of miles and one together in our tiny Santiago apartment…

After six years of knowing each other…

After meeting the families, and Sunday afternoons on Isaac’s family farm, and trips to my home in Chicago…

After countless car rides on the endless winding roads of Galicia, with Arcade Fire and MGMT blasting on the radio (okay, and sometimes Pitbull, too)…

After thousands of meals of “try this, you’ll like it!” and introducing each other to hamburgers, cinnamon toast, cupcakes, cocido, and pollo con fideos…

After adopting our kitten Cleo and making a little family of 3…

After hikes in the mountains and afternoons on beaches and nights out on the town…

After long late-night discussions about hopes, dreams, the perfect little country cottage, a bakery, and a house full of animals…

And after a million “I love yous”…

…we’re engaged!
