Surprise . . . . .

. . . . . I am engaged! Larry asked me on August 28th. It was a Sunday night and he did at our home. He totally surprised me.

Let me tell you the whole story. It all started back in June. We went ring shopping and didn't tell anyone. I found my ring (pictured below) the very first place we went. I fell in love with it. Then I waited. Which surprising didn't seem as long as you would think. Funny how real life gets in the way. We have had quite a busy summer.

He wanted to surprise me when he asked me but knew if tried anything out of the normal I would catch on. On that Sunday night I had to go clean out my car to take into the shop the next day. Little did I know while I was down cleaning my car out he was running around our house like a mad man getting it all set up. When I came back in I still had no idea. I said: ok are you ready to walk the dog. He said: hold on I what to show you something. I still didn't catch on. . .until he opened the bedroom door. Then I knew, he had found all of the scrapbooks of our adventures over past 4 years and layed them all out on the bed along with a bear he had given. He had the box hiding under the bear. Once he said a few words he moved the bear picked up the box and got down on one knee to ask me. I was and still am so happy. Another fun surprise was the ring box has a built in led light so when he opened it - the whole ring sparkled. - The End.
