While I’ve Been Gone…

Shocking Fact #1:

I got engaged.

I proposed to Whitney in September, when we were up at her GMa’s and GDo’s Lazy W Ranch in McArthur for the annual Labor Day extravaganza.  It was a perfect moment shared by taking the Dune Buggy and riding out to the apple orchard through 3 foot tall weeds with grasshoppers and bugs flying into our hair, mouths and eyes.   She had no idea what was going on, and luckily she was feeling extra adventurous that day.

When I got down on my knee, Whitney didn’t believe it at first, but when it finally sunk in, she was ecstatic. And of course we celebrated in the traditional fashion: gettin’ drunk!

I am so lucky to have her.  And the icing on the cake is that my future in-laws are pretty ‘effin kickass.

Six months later and we are still together.   So far, so good.

The ring I proposed with. The bling came later.
