We're Engaged! (The full story)
We've both been in a state of bliss ever since Alex proposed but somehow he managed to gather his mental facilities long enough to tell the full story of his engagement ring adventures over on ArborBoy. I'll leave it to Alex to share the details since my story is a lot simpler. I thought I was getting my graduation present, just something silly and fun. When I opened my eyes there was a jewelry box sitting in front of me. It was sweet, simple and intimate. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Alex thinks I was on to him but, for the record, I had no idea. He had me completely fooled.
I can't begin to explain how happy we are. Thank you, everyone, for all the congratulations!
I was born and raised in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, fondly known as "Amish Country". I moved to New York City a theatre geek and morphed into a science geek which has given me a plethora of somewhat eclectic, albeit useless, trivia knowledge. I've been a dancer, a bartender, a bookseller, a real estate agent and, most recently, a veterinary nurse. I recently (and happily) gave up big city life to live near the ocean.
