FYI...I am happily, finally engaged to my sweetsies! Yes, it has been 10 wonderful years.
Personal life, family, work. Work, family, personal life...go figure. Trace and I have been given lots of new responsibilities, which naturally involves a learning curve, i.e. certain mistakes. Which inevitably drives Jeff crazy. I am one to admit my mistakes as I believe in treating others as you would want them to treat you. Jeff flipping out on me was really unfortunate. It got a little out of control. I am certain that this was not Jeff's intention. He was obviously frustrated with me. I'm just glad he didn't ram his fist through the ML windshield or throw his Blackberry at Jenni. When the dust settles, we are family first. Sometimes family tends to cross the line when it comes to emotion. We are all imperfect, so we hug and make up.
My life has completely taken a leap of new and profound joy. Now, being an engaged woman, this is a start of an amazing new time in my life. I had been told by Jeff for a while that this bliss would not happen with Stevo. This was never the case. I am happy to announce that I am now engaged to the love of my life. I can finally have a personal conversation with Jeffy without the commitment issue coming up. Now we are in the wedding planning phase. Of course Jeff has his opinion on the event. I think it's sweet and out of genuine love. He has an odd way of displaying it, but Jeff has a kind heart.
I feel like I am an valuable asset to Jeff's company and would really like this working relationship to continue between he and I. Having dinner at Carrie and Todd's house truly shows our personal family relationship which exists everyday. However, I do think we can make it work because we get along so well. That being said, I look forward to the many future design projects and family/work occasions with Jeff Lewis.
