a little bit of news...

So, umm... how should I say this. Let's see, I guess there's no use in just beating around the bush, I might as well just get it out.... errrr.... well here goes.... I'm Engaged! Darren asked me to marry him this past weekend and I just couldn't be more happy! Wow. We've been talking about it for a while now, but I didn't really think it would happen until closer to summer, and I definitely didn't have any clue that he had been ring shopping.

He asked me Saturday afternoon at his house. First he said he wanted to play a song on the guitar he had written, which he has done before, so I still had no clue. It was a really sweet song, and then he started talking about what it meant, and then the next thing I knew he was on his knee pulling a box out of his pocket. I am just completely excited. It's going to be a lot to plan and get ready for, but he is amazing and I am just so blessed.

I just wanted to share my excitement with you all (especially since Meagan said she was going to spill the beans if I didn't first - ha!) Maybe this will generate some wedding related craftiness that I can share here too.

Johanna said...

Congratulations, Leah! I am really happy for you. Of course, just like everyone else, I want to know when the big day will be!

Meagan said...

lol... I already asked that too... I got the response that they were going to start planning that kinda stuff in a few weeks and just enjoy sharing the news right now. Can't blame them, it's fun just sharing joy.

It wasn't going to be an intentional spillage of the beans, but news like that just has a tendancy to accidently get mentioned.... hehe

also wanted to say that i think you are *sooooo* lucky to have a guy who can write a song for you. i'm not very romantic, but i think that is just the most romantic, heart-melting thing ever. i love that movie The Holiday and shane thinks it's weird how jack black could end up with kate winslet cause he's such a goofy guy. but i said, no way! he's totally wonderful because he wrote a theme song for her! shane just rolled his eyes at this. but i think it's cause he's jealous :)

Congratulations!!!!! Woo hoo, babies and a wedding! I LOVE our blog!
And, I am with Marie on the song thing. I always wanted to marry a man that played an instrument... hmmm... does a computer count?

Leah said...

thanks! you guys are so sweet. we haven't picked a date yet, but that's partly because he had to go out of town for work this week, so we haven't had much chance to talk about it. I'm super excited, and yes I love the fact that he can sing to me :)

Joanna said...
