Well, the GTB proposed this weekend! I couldn’t post between then and now because I know I would leak the news and I had to tell some family and friends before posting (how upset would you be if you found out over blog?!)
Anyway… here’s how it happened:
The GTB brought Stella out for her morning potty break (6:45 am!).
When she comes back in, she always runs to the bedroom and has to be loved by the person still in bed. I was out cold until I heard her little tags jingling, so I reached down all groggy to pet her. Then I opened my eyes and saw a little ribbon around her.
I was instantly awake, picked her up and set her on the bed. She started running around like a maniac because she was excited to be on our bed (her first time!).
The GTB helped me catch her and pulled the ring off the ribbon.
It was be-u-tiful. It literally took my breath away.
He said some beautiful words about love and living our lives together and asked me if I’d marry him. Of course I said yes!
…Now, I am trying to figure out how to take a good photo of the ring — its a lot more difficult to catch the sparkle of a diamond than you’d thing!
