I Said Yes

by Vy on October 7, 2016

Well actually, in the midst of my excitement and tears, I said “I do!” to which Johnny said “Not yet!” Such a comically me moment to somehow mess up a one-word-reply question.

After almost 6 years of dating, Johnny popped the question on me on a random Wednesday night right before bedtime in our home. Without going into too much mushy details, I can say it involved Instagram and that it was every bit as sweet and special as I hoped it would be. If his goal was to catch me completely off-guard and  get me to ugly-cry, then he definitely accomplished that!

In a world where sharing is caring (aka., #snapchateverything), it was important to me that we kept this moment between us. I really relished in the days afterwards of keeping this life-changing event a secret between the two of us (and my sister who happened to be home that night), but afterwards we had a blast telling our family and best friends in really fun ways. It’s probably my favorite part of the engagement!

We’re about T minus a month and some odd days to the #johnnyandvy party and while we still have a ton to do, I can’t wait to marry my best friend soon.

New Beginnings (Again)

by Vy on April 25, 2014


Over the past few years I’ve had a few of my friends tell me that I should start a blog. For me, starting a blog was never a problem, it’s committing to one! The blogosphere is growing every second and it has become kind of intimidating to be a “blogger.” To me, the term implies that a blogger is someone who is incredibly stylish, or brimming with DIY creativity, or in general someone who is very successful at writing about a certain topic. I’ve come to realize that believing this is a little ridiculous because we all have something to share. And while it doesn’t have to be ground breaking or viral-worthy, maybe sharing something is better than sharing nothing.

So, that’s what this is: my (very tiny, very humble) space on the internet to share and write about things I love. To be honest, I’m not sure what kind of space this will evolve into but I hope you’ll stick around to find out.

So cheers! To new beginnings (again),
