….for MY FIANCE!
He proposed last night! Our anniversary was yesterday, so following work, we met for dinner at a wonderful Mexican restaurant. After walking home in the drizzly rain, I presented him with several anniversary gifts afterwhich he said “And I have a gift for you:” he pulls out our engagement ring and a poem, gets on bended knee in our kitchen, and reads the most beautiful love poem I had ever heard! Of course, I am crying and thrilled!! His eyes were so full of love and he was so ernest. After reading the poem, he asks me to marry him and tells me he wants to spend the rest of his life with him!!! I don’t recall my exact words, but they were something like YES and OF COURSE!!!
We have already spoken about where and when we will get married. It will be an intimate wedding (close friends and family)- maybe where we live or a destination wedding with a “reception dinner” after in the towns where most of of our family/friends live. Not sure yet. We will get married either late spring or summer of 2011.
Thank you, Bees, for all of your support and kind words during my “freak outs!” And thank you E-Chicken!!! 😉

Thank you, ladies, for your well wishes!
The ring looks like this one from Tiffanys (but it’s not from there – we got it at another jeweler for less moolah!):
I’m still in shock that I am actually engaged! He keeps calling me his “beautiful fiancee…” WOW!
