View Full Version : We're ENGAGED!!

Well, we aren't, but our beloved Son is. This past week after graduating from College he and his girlfriend took a trip to the Grand Canyon... Her gift to him for graduation. They also rafted the Royal Gorge... and climbed high peaks.

He wanted an adventure for Graduation! Well, at the top of one climb... on a ledge... he decided it was time to jump off into the biggest adventure of them all. He asked her to marry him!! Woot! We love her... she is a little spitfire, with humor and inner beauty that just makes you love her from day one. She is perfect for him. He has done well. She will match him and go with him in life like two puzzle pieces. I am really happy to announce my son is engaged to be married and we are going to be having a Wedding! I will soon start one of the most important quilts of my life!

Glad you're pleased with his choice because if son ain't happy, mama ain't happy. They sound perfect together.

Congratulations to all involved. What a wonderful way to propose. It's always a good thing when you love the choices your children make, and it sounds like your son is going to be very happy. Get busy on that quilt!

It's been raining here for days. But, I think in June when the weather is nice and the Welcome Center at M* opens back up.. I'll take her (fiance) up to see a trunk show... look at all the shops and pick fabrics and a pattern for their Wedding Quilt! We can do lunch at the Blue Sage and hopefully, she can meet Jenny. Perhaps, all things will come together and she will desire to become a quilter too!

Not so much... LOL. She has invited me to plan the wedding with she and her mother. They think they may want to have it here, in our back yard. We live in the country and it's as lovely as any wedding venue they have seen. She wants an outdoor wedding. I think we can pull it off!
