In case you can’t tell what’s going on in the picture, I am very happy to announce that Paul and I are engaged! This is something we have been looking forward to and praying about for a long time, and we are both thrilled. Paul called my dad on Saturday morning, and received my parents’ blessing, as well as his parents’ blessing. (For those who know our background, you will know what a joy it is to have both sets of parents approve!)
I’m afraid there isn’t a story to tell (if you want a proposal story, you can read this), but I think our whole relationship is a story. :-) That will be my pleasure to tell later, once we get our wedding website designed, up, and running. We are doing it backwards – setting the date, getting engaged, and then Paul proposing (when he gets to Atlanta – we’re not big fans of a FedExed ring). Oh well, who says you have to be traditional? He will be joining me in Atlanta on March 26th – so exciting!!
The wedding date is set for Saturday, August 5th, 2006 (only 166 more days!), and everyone is invited! Make sure you save the date. :-) We would love for all of our friends to be here with us for this special event.
Thank you, and good night!
EDIT: The date has been changed to July 29th, 2006
