It’s over…

Ringwatch 2007 that is. 


I am happy to announce that CP asked me to marry him on December 30th.  And of course I accepted. 

We went to the Morikami Gardens in Delray Beach and walked around.  (CP tells everyone that I forget to tell the part about how he chose it because there were waterfalls…which is a kickback to our first date when we went for a walk in the park to see a fountain at night and it wasn’t flowing even though it had been when he checked earlier. I digress.  Back to my story.) So he suggested we sit down on a bench for a bit.  And we did.  We looked over the lake and we could hear a little boy yelling “Get back here!  Get back here!  If you know what’s good for you you’ll get back here!”
After it quieted down, CP said “You know it’d be good for me if you’d become my wife”, as he was getting down on one knee.  Of course I said yes and he put the most beautiful ring on my hand. 


Things I found out later:
He had called my parents’ on Wednesday and was a little surprised when I answered the phone, so he played it off.  And called on Friday after I had left to see him to ask for their blessing.  He had talked to his parents over Christmas.  He had been shopping for quite some time and hadn’t told a soul until just before he asked me!
When I talked to him on Friday from my hotel, he told me to sleep in Saturday morning and take my time getting there.  (My original plan was to get up early and get going.)  But he had to pick up my ring on Saturday morning!  And he wanted a haircut. 

We’ve had the best time sharing our joy with our family and friends! 



  1. Congrats!
