If you haven’t heard the news already, either a) you live under a rock b) you are not my Facebook friend or c) you have nothing better to do and are reading this antiquated blog. Allison and I got engaged a couple weeks ago.
After much planning and trying to throw her off, I went ahead and bought a ring and surprised her down in New Orleans. It was as a wonderful, warm evening, and we were waiting around in Jackson Square before dinner. as a wedding was letting out of St. Louis Cathedral, I reached in my pocket and put the ring on her finger. surprised only begins to describe her reaction. She then pointed out i had not actually asked her, but only put the ring on her finger- minor details.
At any rate, both families are thrilled, as are we, and have a date set in November. none of these long drawn out things. All the details seem to be falling in place with great ease. we’re planning a classy, small, intimate ceremony.
