I was going through a few things the other day and came across this poster design we were working on right before Sarah was diagnosed with cancer. Since we left the road shortly after that, we never did put this poster into use but it’s still fun to look back at it nine years later and see how very young we looked.
And come to think of it, I guess if we looked so young back then, that must mean that the last nine years have aged us?
Yep. I guess they have.
I am aged.
I feel aged.
I “R'” aged.
Well, you get the point.
Since I know that many of us are still basking in the glow of this recent event . . .
. . . I thought it would be fun to open up the floor to you all and hear how your marriage proposals came about. If you’re married, you have a proposal story to tell of some sort whether it be funny, sweet, poignant, awkward, or romantic. Or even romantically awkward!
After Steve and I’d had just six dates in two years, both of our minds started turning pretty strongly toward marriage. Although we didn’t really talk about it outright, we were both dropping plenty of hints along the way.
On November 1, 1981, Steve took me on a day trip through the Blue Ridge mountains. That evening at sunset, we were parked at the top of Mt. Mitchell, which is the highest peak in the Eastern United States.
Great time for a proposal right? On a mountain top? At sunset?
Unfortunately, no proposal was forthcoming.
The next night as we were sitting under a street lamp on a church parking lot and chatting about our relationship, I suddenly blurted out, “Well, what timetable are we on exactly?”
Steve leaned his head forward and rested it on the steering wheel for what seemed like a very long time. Then he sat up straight, looked at me and said, “Will you marry me?”
I didn’t have to think very long before responding in the happy affirmative.
We were married two months later.
Okay . . . it’s your turn!
A couple of you commented on how pretty Meagan’s nails were and asked if she had done them especially for possible proposal.
Although I don’t have the inside scoop on that, I would probably guess that the answer to that would be, “Yes!” Either that or Meagan just has gorgeous nails all the time. In which case, I am definitely jealous.
Jodi asked, Any idea of a date? This year, next year? Does Nathan want to find a job first? What is his major? Where will the wedding be? I am guessing Megan's Dad and Steve will officiate?
Jodi, I’m sure that during the time that Nathan and Meagan are here we’ll start talking about a lot all those questions. I’m fairly sure the wedding will be sometime this summer but beyond that I don’t know many answers to wedding questions.
As for Nathan’s major, it is something along the lines of Social Work/Counseling. I don’t remember the exact official title but that’s the general idea.
Mrs Pam asked if Snowy had gotten any mail yesterday.
Mrs. Pam, he sure did and he says to tell you that the healthy, homemade dog biscuits were especially delicious. He is now convinced that you are the most wonderful person ever!
