Did I ever tell you...

... that I was wearing jogging clothes when Geary proposed to me? It had been a difficult week. I had been in a car accident the week before and I was stressed out with insurance and towing companies and such. Geary invited me to go for a run so I put on black warm-up pants with a white stripe down each leg and a saggy, baggy t-shirt. We walk/jogged a couple blocks away to the house I used to live in when he started courting me.

On the porch I saw a table lit up with candles, and a big vase of roses. Geary had to talk me into going to see what it was all about. I thought for sure I would be ruining someone's surprise but it was all for me. He asked me to be his wife that night and sometimes I laugh when I recall what I was wearing. The most romantic night of my life and I looked like such a slob. But I felt like the most beautiful woman in the universe. He still makes me feel like that, you know?


  1. Oooh, I just got chills coming to that last line. So romantic! I just got back from a very lovely sweet wedding, so love is in the air. Here's to everyone (everyone! do you hear me, universe?) finding their other, wonderful half. Becky

  2. Your engagement story is like a favorite movie that you love that you watch over and over and over and you always know what is going to happen, but every time it makes you smile/cry/laugh and be warm all over... Every time I read about you guysI just get happy!
