Okay, I was just about to write a post about color palettes—but I can’t anymore because I just got some exciting news!

Bridesmaid Buenos Aires is engaged!!! And she is getting married in THREE weeks! Ahhhh! I’m SO excited!

As you may have guessed from her oh-so-clever moniker, she lives in Argentina. I have known BM BA forever, she is a good family friend and really she has been a part of our family since she was 6, joining us on family vacays and everything.

Here’s a picture of me and BM BA:

Yup, in matching shirts. That’s how we role.

BA and her fiancé (!!!) have an amazing international love story. A few years ago BA decided to move to Argentina for a year to teach English. She had an amazing time there and became friends with many people, including a great guy named R. After the year was up, BA moved back to her hometown of Chicago. Many months later R decided to move to Paris, and he stopped in Chicago to visit BA for a week first. It was there that their friendship evolved into something more—but it was just a wonderful, but short, week. Neither BA or R knew if it would ever be anything more. He was in Paris, she was in Chicago. They kept in touch, but weren’t a couple until BA went to visit him in France for a week. Now they were in love. So when R moved back to Argentina, BA soon followed. After living there together over a year R popped the question with a strawberry ring pop. Since they are an international couple they decided to have a short engagement followed by an intimate wedding in Buenos Aires. Next year they will have a bigger wedding celebration in Chicago. Woo-hoo! Congrats BA & R!!!

The engaged couple!

Aren’t they adorable?
