hi from ericalynn!

by left_blank on October 29, 2003

the lovely Statia has been so nice as to let me guest post today, because I have special news and I wanted to share it… but my blog has been down since the summer so it’s hard for me to share it on my own : )

last night, stephen asked me to marry him, and I think I was able to squeak out a “yes” ; )

I came home from work and he had all my favorite foods made (which is incredible because I haven’t been able to eat all these things in months due to my diet). he had cleaned the house, lit candles, made it gorgeous. we had been together 27 months yesterday so that’s what he said we were celebrating. after we ate, he asked if i wanted my present.

he gave me this little red pillow that said “i love you” on it. I’m a sucker for cute things so I was very happy to receive it, but I immediately put it down after looking at it. stephen then says, “look, it has a little pocket in it!” I turn it around, and lo and behold, there is a pocket. so I said the pocket was nice, and put it down again.

now he’s basically thinking to himself, “I’m about to ask the dumbest girl in the world to marry me!” he pulls out the ring from the pocket and I’m so astounded – both by my dumbness and by the surprise of it all – that I start laughing and crying at the same time, and of *course* I said yes, and then we had champagne and cake…

it still hasn’t sunk in. this morning, the first thought I had was that I was the luckiest girl in the world.. I truly feel that way. I am excited, shocked, happy…and feeling loved : )

just wanted to tell you all!
xoxox,
ericalynn

That is SO AWESOME — I’m so happy for you both! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

It reminds me of my proposal story. Todd had hidden my ring on the bow of a teddy bear. I kept saying how cute it was and put it down, and he kept saying, “I really like the bow.” Took him saying that about 5 times before I caught on to actually look at it. *g*

I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and love! Congrats again!

Beautiful Day As I previously mentioned, at one point during my webpage hiatus, Stephen proposed to me. The next day, because I was webpageless and in need of an outlet, Statia let me announce my engagement and tell the story briefly on her page. Now…
