Me = Still Smiling...

I don't normally get too personal on my blog, but I wanted to write a thank you post to my guy. I have to say I'm a lucky girl....even after 11 years together, he still amazes me. He cooks amazing dinners almost everyday (he loves cooking) & on Sundays he makes blackberry pancakes for us. But on this particular Sunday (August 2nd), he did something unexpected.....HE PROPOSED. He placed a beautiful ring on my finger & now, I'm officially engaged!! Some might ask, what took so long??!?? Timing never seemed to be on our side & now it is. I am truly grateful for every smile he has brought to my face. With that I say, thank you fiance, I love you......

  85. WOW...! THANK YOU sooo much everyone! I am still quite excited and it was super nice to read all of these comments. :) AND to those WHO also got ENGAGED, that's great! What a sweet coincidence - hope you have a great life together!

    P.S - As for the ring, I haven't decided if I want to post a photo or not...since I rarely go into personal stuff on my blog. But who knows maybe i'll give in.
    Ha! At this time there isn't a date set for a wedding, but
    this may be hard for some to believe...I'm not sure i want a BIG event-style wedding. Not sure. Something relatively simple will make me HAPPY. :)

    :))))
