It was Christmas Eve. (Ok, technecally it was between midnight and 1AM on Christmas morning)
We were having our annual family Christmas Eve party.
Everyone insisted it was time to open one present each, me first.
After much hesitation (they were acting SO weird!) I opened the gold box from Blaine.
I found something beautiful inside.
And then something amazing happened. Something that changed our lives.
He knelt down and said "Aileen Catherine Rose, will you marry me?"
I could hardly hear him over the screams from my entire family.
I cried and hugged him, hiding my face. I don't do well being the center of attention.
I said yes.
I am going to marry the most amazing man I've ever met.
My "soulmate" ring. We saw it around Thanksgiving. It was way out of our budget for my ring. I tried to forget about it. Now I have it.
Will post more pictures and details later!
I have a feeling my blog will be littered in wedding planning and inspiration over the next 10 months or so.
We're planning a wedding on October 22nd, 2011. Our 5 year anniversary.
Happy New Year,
The Future Mrs. Barker
