The Ring

I'd post a picture of the ring as Emily asked, but here's the deal--I don't actually have it. Hold on, hold on, don't get a bee in your bonnet or whatever they say these days (since I'm pretty sure it isn't that). I have A ring, just not THE ring. You see, it had to be special ordered because they couldn't size it small enough at the store without the risk that the band would break. So...they gave Brian a "loaner" ring you might say. It is still very pretty, just a different style than the actual ring. Anyway, it is nice to have anything finally on the finger, and I think Brian was getting nervous about all those seventh grade boys hitting on me at school.....

For those of you who read my blog, I thought I'd let you know that I am officially engaged to Brian Porter! Since those of you who read my blog are probably also the few people I talk to on a semi-regular basis, this probably isn't big news. But, it's still true, and it is still exciting, and so I am going to tell you anyway. I wont bore you (or embarrass myself) by going through every detail of the proposal for you, but I will give you some idea of how it came off.

Brian is starting law school at the U this fall and so he told me that there was a reception on Sunday night where you could meet other law students and socialize and all that. While this was technically true, we did not go to it as I was anticipating. Instead Brian took me to This is the Place park where they have a large open grassy area overlooking Salt Lake. A perfect place for a picnic and a sunset. Brian was prepared with a full picnic basket, a blanket, and even a candle and some matches. We enjoyed the food and each others company and Brian finally got around to kneeling down and popping the which I obviously said yes. Then we high tailed it out of there as the temperature dropped severely with the setting of the sun.

And of course I actually knew what was coming the entire day.....sometimes you just get a feeling.....

I Love You Brian
