George and I are engaged. Yes, it’s true. He proposed shortly after midnight last night and it was perfect. I could not have asked for anything better. He’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me. And I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him.
If you’re wondering how he asked, it was simple and what I’d always hoped for in a proposal… We had just finished watching an awful, cheesy movie (My Super Ex-Girlfriend) and spent 15 minutes laughing at how stupid we thought it was. We laid on the couch in a candle-lit living room and during the middle of our laughter, George slowly reached into his bag that sat on the floor and pulled out a little black box. He opened it and he asked me to marry him. All I could do was stare dumbly at the ring he held in front of me and ask him if he was “being serious.” But I quickly changed my answer to “yes” and smothered the rest in kisses.
We’ve spent the whole day calling people and making announcements. It’s been a pretty crazy day. And my birthday is tomorrow and we’re going to Chattanooga to take fun pictures.
The date is set for August 16, 2007, which we’ve chosen to honor George’s dad, who passed away in August of 2005.
More info and links to our wedding will be provided soon.
Holy crap, I’m getting married! And it’s awesome!
