The Picture Says It All

On Christmas Eve, Maura and I had her entire family, my mom and some friends over for dinner. Right before we started our salads, I stood up and nervously said a few words then got down on one knee and asked Maura to marry me, in front of everyone. She was very surprised, shocked even… but she did manage to squeeze out a resounding “YES!”. Much applause, laughter, and cheering followed. Then she said something that I will never forget… She turned to me, looked deeply into my eyes and called me a freak! She meant in the most loving way possible, of course.

No date is set yet, we have some ideas but we want to take our time planning this thing. One thing’s for certain, it will not be a big church wedding. I’m happier than I ever imagined possible!
