I'm so excited...


....to be able to share the news with you lovely lovely people!

Ready?

I'm engaged to the Swede!

AH! SO. Excited!

F just went back to Sweden after a 10 day visit to Virginia and it was heavenly. He proposed on Chincoteague Island (where the wild ponies are, etc....Misty of Chincoteague)  in a park. On a bench. With the sun low in the autumn sky.

And he asked me with this:

1935. Belais Brothers 18k white gold engagement ring.
When I saw it, I did this:



But with out the over dramatic music...mostly just that weird noise.

Then I asked if it was real.

He said yes.

Then I asked if he was going to ask me to marry him.

He then said yes again.

Then he asked me to marry him.

I then said yes.

Then I told him he had to put the ring on my finger.

And it fit, perfectly.

And now.... It's another visa process procedure...hopefully the last one we'll have to do for a while. :)
