I'm Engaged!!!

Tonight I got the only Christmas present that I wanted. I asked Roxi to marry me and she said yes! We are both so very happy with each other and she couldn't have been more surprised. I almost thought it wouldn't go as planned, but I should start the story a littler earlier than today.

I purchased the ring long before our trip to New York, but didn't bring it with me for fear that I might lose it before I had the opportunity to propose. I hid it in our house with the plan of giving it to her for our second anniversary which happens to coincide with Christmas. This afternoon, I asked Roxi if she would like to go see the Christmas lights at Acadian Village here in town. My plan of course was to ask her there, but she wasn't too hot on the idea because of the potential for a big crowd. After a little while, I asked her if she was sure that she didn't want to go and she said that if it was important to me, we could. I assured her that she wouldn't forget this trip...and she won't. As I said she was very surprised even though we have been discussing our pending engagement for the past few months. So it worked out perfectly, but for a little while I was a bit worried that I would have to improvise the time and place of the proposal.

We haven't set a date yet, but our families couldn't be happier with our engagement. They all know how happy Roxi and I make each other and are so happy to officially be getting new additions to their respective families. So Christmas came early for us and we both got exactly what we wanted!

YAY!!! Congratulations to you both! Marriage ROCKS!!!

Good job on the proposal! I probably would have put Bubba off, too, after spending a week in crowded NYC! I'm glad it went well!
