Big Announcement -- I'm Engaged!

Last Saturday my beloved boyfriend of four years got on one knee and asked me to marry him. Um, yes. Yes yes yes.

Angi Glenn of Tiny Armour fame (an M Design Boutique designer) will design the engagement ring and both of our wedding rings. This is a great honor for both of us because Angi is one of my closest friends and knows me like a sister. I cannot wait to wear what she designs.

Because Mike did not have the ring (he wanted me to have a hand in what the design will be), he drew one using two sharpies. He drew a red heart and blue x's and o's as the band. The engagement ring will reflect these design elements from the drawn-on ring, which pleases me to no end. Mike's adorable drawn-on ring will be part of what Angi creates, and I will always remember the moment he proposed as one of the best moments of my life.

Just look at the joy on his face!

In fact, I don't think my feet touched the ground for several days after! We waited till Sunday to call family and friends, which has carried over day after day. You see, I keep in touch with friends all the way back to elementary school, and I consider myself tremendously lucky to be able to share my joy with them, as they have seen me through my most difficult times as well.

So there you have it! My life is good! My best to each of you as well!

Congrats!!! Now I can call you two "to your faces" what I've called you for quite some time now. Wait for it...Molissa. That's right, Molissa.

I love that you're designing your ring. I did the same thing (except for the center stone, which was there at proposal in a temp setting). You can design it together, which is special. Big hugs to both.
