Tuesday night, after coming home from having dinner and drinks with the just-returned-from-the-East-Coast Susan and Erica, Aaron asked me to marry him and presented me with a gorgeous Tiffany engagement ring. I cried. A lot. But I managed to nod "yes" and it was a beautiful moment. It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen and I'm incredibly happy... although I'm a little nervous because it's the finest thing with which I've ever been entrusted. No date has been set and probably won't be set until I finish school, take the bar and find myself a decent job.

'&'; $paginate_self = preg_replace("/&page=[^&]*&/", "&", $paginate_self); $paginate_self = substr($paginate_self, 1, strlen($paginate_self) - 1); if($paginate_self == '&') $paginate_self = ''; else $paginate_self = htmlentities($paginate_self); $paginate_self = basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) . "?${paginate_self}page"; ?> Posted by Kristina at August 18, 2005 08:16 AM

Congratulations! That rocks! Being engaged is awesome. Being married is even better.

Ditto to that! And in re: the ring- you can insure it through your renters insurance. I HIGHLY recommend doing it- it gives me such peace of mind, because if ANYTHING happens ANYWHERE in the world, it's not the end of the world!

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!! You and Aaron are a beautiful couple, and I always hoped you'd be the next in line to tie the knot (b/c you guys are perfect for one another). You helped me out so much with my wedding/reception that you can ask me to do anything (well, except for on a Monday or Tuesday night) and I will be glad to help...when the time comes that is!!

I am so happy for you, so very happy :)

And I have this to say to your ring: "You rock, rock."

Big congratulations from Germany, I can always use another niece!! Hah-HAH, didn't consider that, did you? Just kidding, I'm really happy for the both of you, and my wife Connie sends her best wishes, too. Take good care of each other, and have a great life together. Regards, Uncle Mark
