Candice and I are engaged!
We’ve been talking about getting married for a while now — I think
we mostly started thinking about it when my cousin Scott got married
last October. It was a small wedding officiated by a Humanist, and both
of those got us talking about what we’d do when we got married, and
we’ve been talking about it on and off since then as something sort
of abstract and in the future.
So on Monday night I asked Candice to marry me, and she said
“Yeah, probably someday,” and then realized I was really asking,
and said “yes”. No ring or date set yet; we were going to go ring
shopping this weekend but I was sick, and the date’s far enough off
(summer 2006) that we haven’t narrowed anything down yet.
I had no idea back when I met
Candice that things were going to end up the way they did. (It
didn’t take me that long to figure it
out, though.) The last year and a half have been some of the best
times ever, though, and I never want this to end.
