Desiree Hartsock and her fiancé, Chris Siegfried, say they are happily and romantically nesting in advance of their upcoming wedding.
After their May 2013 engagement on The Bachelorette, the couple moved in together in Seattle and easily blended their design sensibilities and lifestyles as they put together a cozy and loving home, the couple told TheNest.com.
"Chris knows how to surprise me with flowers or a simple note to make me feel special and thought of. That always makes me happy!" bridal stylist Hartsock, 28, said of their romance.
She's equally committed to returning the interest "by constantly reminding me how much she loves me," Siegfried said. "I love that she makes sure she gets a kiss before I leave for work every day."

Sometimes even the worst things happen for a reason. Desiree Hartsock, star of The Bachelorette, had fallen hard for Brooks Forester, the former male model she believed was The One out of 25 suitors vying for her hand on the ABC reality show.
But when he made it clear he didn't return her feelings – and a stunned 7.8 million viewers watched her collapse in sobs – "I was blind-sided," Hartsock, 27, says now.

In one of the most surprising moments in Bachelor history, standout suitor Brooks Forester left Desiree Hartsock blindsided when he said goodbye just days before the Bachelorette's final rose ceremony.
"I realized that when I was away from Des, I wasn't having these moments of anguish," he tells PEOPLE. "That was a big indicator to me that my feelings weren't there."
He says: "I wanted so badly for [the relationship] to work out, and it was so close I could almost touch it. But I needed to walk away. She deserved to be in love with someone who was equally in love with her."

Former Bachelor contestant Desiree Hartsock is calling the shots and handing out the roses as the current star of The Bachelorette. The bridal stylist will blog all season long on PEOPLE.com about her dates, the guys and the difficult decisions she must make. You can also follow Desiree on Twitter.
I want to start by thanking everyone who watched my journey to find love this season on The Bachelorette. It is a challenging and emotional position to be in so I can't express how grateful I am for the love and support from my family, friends and viewers. I appreciate the encouraging words from many and the understanding that love can be unpredictable.
My relationship with Drew flourished in affection and through in-depth conversation. I enjoyed seeing the compassion and love he had in his heart and the sincerity that showed through his eyes. After our last date in Antigua, I felt like our relationship didn't move forward and I started to question if we were right for each other. He has so many qualities I was looking for in a partner but I had to put qualities aside and see if I could really picture our future together.
