    It was very simple, but just how I would have wanted it. I was upstairs playing on the computer (no it wasn't this blog!) and he was supposed to be making chocolate fondue for dessert as I had cooked dinner for him. When he called me to come downstairs, I noticed the lights were low, but didn't think too much of it as he sometimes lights candles when we have a romantic meal or dessert. However, when I turned the corner at the bottom of the stairs to go into the living room, there he was on one knee holding an engagement ring! Apparently when he asked me to marry him I said "Are you serious?!" before saying yes, but I don't remember that. :) The diamond on the ring was his grandmother's and he had it reset on a new band - it is very pretty. Both families are very happy too, so this has been an especially nice Christmas so far.

    Thanks for all of your kind comments and wishes for us. It's nice to be able to share with all of you!
