The rumors are true.
I am engaged.
Manfriend and I decided to get hitched.
PS- sorry for not updating this blog in fifty million years. But know that good things are happening and that is why I haven't updated
Here is our story...
The first time Manfriend and I went to the Lincoln Memorial, we were still getting to know each other. I had taken him around to the back of the monument, where hardly anybody goes and although we had already kissed, for some reason we didn't kiss at the monument that day.
Fast forward to Saturday.
We were hanging around my house, and the sun had just started going down. He very casually said, "Hey, why don't we head up to the Lincoln to watch the sunset and finally get in our kiss ?", to which I agreed. We drove in, found an awesome parking spot, and walked to the Lincoln.
We took a few pictures of the Lincoln statue and then I suggested we walked around back (because that is what I always do). As we went back there, we found a section between pillars that was empty. We stood there for a little while, looking at the Potomac River and the Memorial Bridge. He asked me what I was thinking and I said, "I am wondering why you haven't kiss me"...and he replied, "Not yet".
I gave him a quizzical look and all of a sudden, he was down on one knee, pulling a blue box out of his pocket and there was a beautiful engagement ring inside. He said some wonderful things, asked me to be his wife and I am pretty sure I replied yes (I had to ask him about that, it is a little blurry).
|About 5 minutes after he proposed. I was still in shock.|
We starting calling family and friends (apparently his family had been texting him all day!) and we then went to dinner at the same restaurant where we had our first date.
|This is from New Years. I just like the picture...|
Words cannot describe how excited I am to marry this man. Oh, and I suppose I can tell you his real name at this point. This is Richard.
