I'm engaged! : ) (Not that I wasn't before, but now it's "official".)
Last night Gordon took me to the restaurant where we had our first date and got down on his knees and asked me to marry him. He was so nervous he was talking really fast! I said yes (of course!) and he gave me a stunningly beautiful ring. It's a radiant cut diamond with a tapered baguette on either side, set in platinum. It's gorgeous - and really sparkly!
So we've both been floating ever since last night. He said that he'd wanted to wait until between dinner and dessert to ask me, but that he just couldn't wait! We hadn't even ordered our dinner yet when he asked, and then I was so excited I couldn't eat much of anything - and I'd ordered rack of lamb, so you know I was excited if I couldn't eat THAT! I took a couple of bites of my dinner and realized I wasn't tasting anything, so I just stopped eating (and spent a lot of the time staring either at Gordon's eyes or at my ring). We did toast with champagne, and even got dessert, too. Then I only had one bite.
So the wedding will likely be in May of next year, and we're both just SOOOOOOO thrilled to have found each other!
We're heading down to San Diego tonight for the night partly so that Gordon can meet my uncle and a friend of mine who live down there, and partly so we can go to the chapel I used to go to down there so we can see if we might want to get married there. I need to get going and throw some clothes in a bag!
