18 March 2008 - 8:03pmHappily Engaged!
Joelle and I are engaged!! We’re very excited about it and are really looking forward to our wedding on July 11th of next year.
How it went down:
I got home from school on Friday for my spring break. I had been planning for the last few weeks that I would use my week off from school to shop for a ring and plan how I was going to do everything. Joelle’s spring break wasn’t until a week after mine, so I had the week to shop around and such without her being home to find out.
That all changed when Miss Joelle decided she wanted to come home for the weekend a week before her break. I had planned to wait another week but I was so excited about it that I wanted to do it early. So I stayed up for hours on Friday night (the 14th) making this webpage for her. On Saturday morning (the day she was coming home), I went out to do some shopping and found this ring at Ruby and Sons Jewelry.
Later that day, after spending some time at her house, Joelle and I went back to my house and I seized my opportunity. I sat Joelle down at the computer and had her watch the slideshow. At the end, I knealt down beside her and asked her to marry me. Needless to say, she said yes and we spent the next several minutes just hugging each other and looking at how pretty her ring is on her hand.
Watch the slideshow, look at the ring and leave us comments if you want to. We’re excited and we’d love to hear from you if you’re excited too.
