Our engagement: so romantic!

So I thought that since Lance and I are engaged now, I can officially join the world of bloggers! Yay! I'll start things off with our engagement story. It's a good one too...

We had been planning a hike with our friends Justin and Lindsay (and little Turin) for awhile. And because of comments they had been making all week, I thought there was no way he was proposing that night. I was a little bummed because I had really hoped to have a ring. So we were hiking along and almost to the top when I noticed a red table set with fine china and candles overlooking the city. I didn't think much of it til I saw Tosh and Keith and then I just knew this had to be it!

But.... we finished dinner and still, no ring! We started hiking back down the mountain and, being the impatient person that I am, I asked him if this was just for fun or if he was really proposing. He loved it! He kept me in suspense until we came around the corner on the last leg of the hike. And there, on the ground, were candles all around a blanket. He had written me a song on the guitar. It was the sweetest thing.


Then, he got down on one knee and proposed. I was so excited I practically yelled yes! We had chosen the setting and diamond together but I had never seen them together and it just took my breath away. I couldn't stop looking at it all night.

Oh how I love him. We are so excited to start our lives together.
Mark your calendars for November 21st :)
