rings and things
So I've been sitting on some news since my birthday... The day began slowly (bread pudding and coffee) and it continued at a leisurely pace throughout the day: a drive down to Richmond, relaxing on the couch (the beau was fighting a horrid cold), a little True Blood viewing, and a lovely dinner out at Selba (a dinner where I wore a dress & he a suit coat - my birthday request).
On our way to dinner we took a slight detour. To the Carillon in Byrd Park. Where we first met last May. Where the beau now led me, holding my hand. And then he got down on one knee. And said marry me.
And I said yes.
Forgive my silence until now, but we've been slowly telling family and close friends and just relishing in calling each other "fiance" and "fiancee." But now we're ready to sing the news out to the world. I couldn't be happier.
