♥ Engaged ♥

Brian first proposed in December of 1992. We had been dating only 4 months.

It was very casual. I remember we were at his parents house (we both still lived at home) and he just nonchalantly asked if I would marry him.

I laughed and said ask me again when you have a 4 Caret. He didn't think that was so funny.

I quickly realized he was being serious and I didn't know what to say...

Over the next two months we talked about that would mean, what we would do, how we would/could it. We talked to our parents.

Which they each had their own interesting take.

When we told my parents, my mom said, "I knew it was only a matter of time" and she bought us the game of life to "practice". Really she did - and REALLY we played!!

When we told Brian parents, Brain's mom said come with me. She took me into Bran's room and she said "I want you to know, you are marrying a slob". You need to know now and NEVER complain about because you've been warned. SHE WAS SO RIGHT ;-)

Brian officially proposed on Valentine's Day in 1993 - 6 months after we began dating. I eagerly accepted.
