I'm engaged!


Those who follow me on Instagram (@carolynyuen) or Twitter might have heard the news.. My boyfriend proposed on Friday! The night was completely perfect and after, he had planned a surprise engagement party in the private room of a wine bar. It was such a fun celebration with family and friends, people gave speeches, one of my best friends and her musician husband sang and performed a few songs on their guitars, and there was a constant flow of wine and food all night. Then, Christmas weekend was filled with laughter, good food, and loved ones.. happiest weekend ever! Most of all because I so can't wait to marry my best friend. :) Anyway, I wrote a bit more about how it all happened in response to a question on Formspring.
