BIG news

That's right.
I have some very BIG, exciting, HUGE, unbelievable news.


I'M ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I must have had some type of preminition from that post I made yesterday!
And here is the beginning of the story of our engagement...

As you know I work for the Governor of the State of Alabama.  What you may not know is
that my boyfriend (now fiance!) also works for Governor Bentley.  Yesterday at 4:00 PM
we had a staff meeting scheduled in the Old House Chamber at the Capitol. The staff
meeting was a chance for the Governor to let the staff know how much he appreciated
our hard work during the recent tornado recovery.  Little did I know, this was not a
typical staff meeting.  Don't worry - our friends caught it all on video!  Enjoy :)


And here is a peak at the ring...


We both could not be more thrilled to be engaged and can't wait to begin our lives together.

A HUGE thank you to all of our friends and family that made that moment so memorable.
I can't wait to marry my best friend and the love of my life :)
