I was laying half
asleep thinking about how much this relationship meant to me,
I could not sleep. I had to get it out. I went into the room
and woke her at 5:00 in the morning, got down on my knee and
asked her to marry me. I guess I could not hold it in any
and Kim's wedding had postponed me from asking as I did
not want to shift any attention from them as it was their
She said yes. I put her ring on and the excitement boiled
in both our hearts. Everything felt 100% right, except that
it was 5:00 in the morning!
We celebrated the engagement with a dinner at the City Grill,
a restaurant that overlooks downtown Portland. We reserved
window seats and toasted to our new lives. Shortly after,
Mary Anne and John hosted a wonderful engagement party at
their home in Portland. It was a great party, and we all got
to meet John and Tamber's new baby.
I am so grateful to have such a loving, caring, and FUN partner
for life. I can not wait for the wedding, as I love to introduce
Anne to my friends and family. It does not take long to see
why I choose to marry her. I love you Belle!
