It’s Official…

11 March 2007

Bikes & BlingTim proposed to me this weekend, at a favorite spot of ours out in the country just outside of Middleburg. Anyone who has been on a motorcycle ride with us out there knows where — the rock in the middle of the river by the one-lane bridge. We went for what I thought was to be a casual Saturday ride… and it turned in to tears of happiness, Tim on one knee proposing and celebrating with a bottle of sparkling apple cider (with no glasses because I was being too nosy when he was packing the bike). I may let him tell his side of the story when he has time to write.

We celebrated that evening with dinner at the Italian restaurant that we went to on one ofThe Happy Couple our first dates (the one I mentioned in a previous blog entry). Sunday, we had lunch with his parents and shared the happy news.  First engagement pic compliments of Ma Olson.

The big question I’m sure everyone is going to ask is: when’s the wedding?  Since this is a second marriage for both of us, we have always wanted something small and private.  We plan to elope (if you can still call it that since we’re telling everyone) for a ceremony & honeymoon/vacation, probably to Scotland, which is where we’ve always talked about getting married.

    What a guy- hiding the ring for over a year! Tim just wanted to make sure you couldn’t say no 😉 I’m so happy to be gaining a sister!
