It's a Diamond!

It's a heart-shaped diamond - and it's mine :) Mom posted pictures of us all at Zippel Bay on the 10th, but what she didn't say was the real reason we went there...Aaron and I got engaged!

One of the most beautiful places in the whole world! You may not be able to see Aaron and I in this picture, but we're out at the end of the point there -
I won't tell you all of what we said....but the summery is - he asked me to marry him and I was very happy to say yes!

My cheeks actually hurt that evening from smiling so much :) It was a surprise to me, but some of the rest of the family knew what was going on....

We're planning on getting married sometime in December, but we'll let you know the exact date later on -


As we were walking back to the picnic table, we found this written in the sand...

    I love the new profile pix and am sure anxious to hear how the Bible Bee went for all of the involved cousins up there.

    Love,
