Wanted to fill you in on some FUN news via the blog. As of Feb. 14th (Valentine's Day), Sarah and I are engaged...to be married, of course! However, we occasionally "engage" in thumb wars in which she has to cheat to win (she uses her index finger). I digress...
I'm sure you're wondering, how did you propose? I will provide a brief narrative. We had just returned home from a Valentine's Day dinner sponsored by our church. I had pictures strategically arranged around the house in the form of a scavenger hunt. The hunt for the beautiful ring started with the roses on the kitchen counter. Written instructions next to the flowers stated that she should follow the pictures, arrows, and music. Sarah correctly followed these items to the spare bedroom where I had her sit down. There, I sang and played a "romantic" song on guitar. By the way, I wrote half of it myself...the rest was compliments of Blue October. Following the song, Sarah was almost crying, but not yet. I then began expressing my deepest sentiments and love (ahhhhhh). Here is where she started crying a little. I got down on one knee and proposed. This is the part when she said, "Yes."
We spent the next few hours calling immediate family, taking pictures, and sipping champagne. Oh, and Sarah dedicated much of this time to admiring her ring.
So that's the FUN news from Lincoln.
