Well there’s nothing like Cre calling me out to write something 🙂 I just joined a few days ago since you all have created such a wonderful community (but I’ve been reading for a LONG time – since a couple other friends introduced me to the site). Anyway – I didn’t think that I’d have such happy news to share so soon, but the boy proposed last night! We had gone Christmas tree shopping and had decorated the tree (our first together – been living together for about 8 months now). And we were admiring the lights on the tree with our dog when he told me he loved me and wanted to spend the rest of his life with me, and then surprised me with the ring! It’s exactly what I wanted, a round solitaire on a platinum band. I’m still a little bit in shock since he’s been very good at convincing me that nothing was going to happen for at least another 6 months to a year. But I’m so excited to start planning (and several good friends have just gotten married so I’ve got lots of wedding magazines coming to me shortly! 🙂 ) Looking forward to being mroe active on the boards now too!
