Michelle & I Are Officially Engaged

Engagement ringShe asked how I knew…

So many images & feelings rushed through me that words alone could not suffice.

How could I explain the invitation I felt in the warmth of her smile… how I lost myself in the enchantment of her deep brown eyes?

Are words enough to describe the intimacy of a kiss or the anxious exuberance as we danced about in the dark?

She has provided me with strength in the virtue of her presence and I have surrendered at the anticipation of her caress.

Her spirit soars higher than the stars and Eternity is a lasting memory in her embrace.

Were I not but a man I would give her the world, as she has already captured my Heart.

She humbles me and yet my aspirations cling to so much more.

She embodies the Love of my yesterdays & tomorrows…

She asked how I knew…

I’m a very happy man right now. Details later…

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!! That is wonderful news! I was wondering how long that was going to take you AJ… 🙂
    We can’t wait to meet Michelle and see THE ring next weekend. The ring is GORGEOUS, but I assume the photo just doesn’t do it justice. We’ll definitely have to celebrate in person!!
    Congratulations and best wishes to you both.
    P.S. I apologize (but not REALLY) that you have to plan around our wedding next year!

    When I first read it I was shocked to the point that I splilled cold Pib Extra down my shirt and hot soup down my pants… and I was still smiling.

    At least I still have my barbequed Frito twists.

    That is great news!

    We’ll have to have that bachelor party with Snooty Frooty Shake my Booty malt beverages and best of Ricki Lake marathon that we always talked about.
