Merry Christmas to me! Andy asked me to marry him on Christmas evening! Can you believe it? It's only been seven and half years since we started dating. WOW! lol I'm still in shock, and so afraid to plan anything, because it just seems unreal. :-)
We had plans to travel to Roanoke to visit with his family (like we usually do on Christmas morning). Unfortunately, the weather put a damper on the plans, since it was calling for freezing rain, and we didn't want to chance it. So we stayed in Nelson and had dinner with my brother, sister-in-law, and their children. It was a very nice day, although very dreary because of the rain. Then Andy and I retired to my house for the evening where we went to my room with plans to watch a movie. Since the weather was getting worse, we decided to just hang out for a little bit and enjoy each other, and peace and quiet (hanging out with three rowdy boys all day takes it's toll! ha ha). So we were laying across my bed and Andy said, "I'm sorry that Christmas has been so dismal." I told him that it was just fine, as long as we were together. He then asked if I wanted to be together forever, and I said, of course I did. He then said, "Will you marry me then?" I was so shocked that I said, "Whatever!" It took me a few minutes to realize that he actually meant it!!! So, of course, I said YES!!!
I love this man, more than any other. And I look forward to spending the rest of my life with him and our unborn little one. This Christmas was absolutely the best Christmas!
We have discussed dates, but we haven't set anything in stone. I originally wanted an autumn wedding, but with the timing and all, it probably isn't going to be ideal. So maybe, winter? Who knows. Excitement!!!
