|yes we use snowflake place mats when it is 80 degrees|
we walked to the park where we got engaged in our town's downtown and took some pictures. now seems like a good time to tell our engagement story. of course, everyone's favorite part is the ring. i had someone tell me once 'put the money in the middle'. it seemed like good advice and i used that rule of thumb. king louie and i went ring shopping together because my cousin is a jeweler. it was so much fun to shop with someone who knows us and we know would give us a fair price. not only was it a fair price but we got the employee discount and my cousin got a commission. win win. i'm a horrible decision maker and she finally said 'this is what you want'. she was right and not a day goes by that i don't look at my ring and think 'i did good'. every time we see my cousin she looks at my ring and we have a moment. it was pretty special. king louie's ring is tungsten and it is apparently indestructible. i guess if he ever breaks his finger and it swells they'll have to cut the ring off. that will be the least of his problems however because i will probably wring his neck.
the ring was ready for pick up on march 15 and it was a thursday. king louie lived out of state at the time and i had no reason to think that he'd be in my home town. i got off the train and was all but running to my car because unlike this year when it was 80, it was freezing out. i heard someone calling my name and didn't think anything of it. i was cold and just kept walking. king louie managed to chase me down and when i saw him i knew what was going to happen. we walked to the park and he got down on one knee. i have no idea what he said other than he wanted to make mistakes with me. i thought that was sweet because no one's perfect. then he said 'will you marry me?' and i said yes and my whole life changed for the better.
