I'm here now with some exciting news. I'm sure you know this already since I've broadcast-ed it on every station, had a plane write it in the sky, created a clothing line embroidered with the fact that I'M ENGAGED to my best friend!!

Now flash forward a few months...with me waiting patiently as possible.The weekend started with my Climate Cycle ride. Which is a 125 mile bike ride to Indiana Dunes and back. This year, after discussing it with some of the organizers, I decided since I didn't train hard enough and didn't raise even close to my fundraising goal that I would just do the 62 mile back from Indiana. It was a tough choice, it sorta left me feeling like I failed. But something was better than nothing. So 62 miles it was....ready or not.
Father's day morning and 15 miles into my ride, I checked my phone and got a message saying that our new little nephew was on his way. He wasn't due for another week, but as his father predicted, he was ready to be a father's day present. That made the rest of my ride exciting, because I thought baby kite would be here by then. I made it to Chicago later that afternoon. It was long but not one bit as bad as I thought it would be, in fact I rode much faster then previous years. So ride success. And thus begins the wait of baby kite. 24 long hours later and our little nephew Carter Liam was born the next morning on his daddy's birthday.
Best present ever I'd say. He is absolutely AMAZING and perfect!
The clock hit 11:11pm and my kite asked me if I'm going to make my daily wish. Umm of course, I have two wishes I wish for at any chance I get. (1. Lose 20 pounds and 2. Get engaged to my kite. Guess which one I chose that night?) After making my wish silently to myself, my kite asked what I wished for. I told him, "Pfft..I can't tell you, it won't come true then." and my kite being romantic out of nowhere said, "What happens if I can make it come true?!" and pulled a ring from behind him and asked if I'd marry him.
My reaction was "SERIOUSLY?!" and then "YES". I was beyond thrown off from the whole weekends events and timing.
Two weeks later and I have not wasted anytime with planning. So stay tuned for crazy wedding planning updates. This shit just got REAL!
