Engagement Story...

Well, I promised details on the proposal itself, and my fiancé has made it quite easy on me to update y'all, by posting his own wonderful version, complete with the fairy tale he wrote just for me. [I hope this partnership in telling our story will be the pattern of our marriage: helping each other out. hehehe...] =D Our friend & pastor at Immanuel, Ryan Fullerton, calls my Ryan "hopelessly romantic," but as Ryan said this morning: "I'm not seeing much 'hopeless' about it-- so far, it's working out quite nicely for me!" I QUITE agree!

Here's the best pic of the ring I can get: You can make out one of the Trinity (or Eternity) celtic knots, to the right of the middle sapphire set. The left knot is a little washed out by the flash. There are three sapphires, each surrounded by diamond chips. And it's white gold, my favorite :) Does he know me well, or what?

And here's another one, where you may be able to get another angle of it:

PS- I don't know if anyone still checks, but I do still upload photographs to my photography website, just FYI...

We'd been waiting for several things to clear up before setting a date, and it turns out that availability of facilities and my pastor have settled the date as August 18, 2007. I can't wait!!! : ) (I'm extremely excited... I strutted around our small group at church tonight flexing ridiculously and calling my self Mr. Fiance in a deep voice. ; )

AE said...

so is August the 18th the final word?!
how exciting! and hey..look at it this way..> I won't forget it... seeing as it is one day from my BD.

It is the final word, indeed. I am counting down the days and planning my anniversary surprises for the years to come. ;) From what I understand, I may be meeting you in person instead of just calling you randomly on the phone. Sorry I haven't called in so long. hehe Hope all is well. You know what? I'll get you some cake for your birthday! You can eat it after my wedding to my wonderful fiancee while she and I do reception type stuff...
