and we're gonna get MARRIED:) Gabe proposed on Saturday, Feb. 13th, 2010. We took a little weekend trip to Evansville, checked into our hotel, and I laid down for a little nap:) The next time I opened my eyes, there was an open ring box right in my face. Of course I said "yes," but Gabe's hands were shaking so bad he couldn't even put the ring on my finger:) That's what I love about him so much...such a tender heart and just a sweet man!!After that, we went shopping at the mall, out to eat at O'Charley's (yum), went to the movies and watched "Dear John," then stopped at Coldstone for ice cream! I told Gabe he definately knows the way to my heart - a proposal, a chick flick, and ice cream:)
We told Max by getting him a build-a-bear and recording a message to put in it. When you press the paw of the bear, you hear my voice saying "Max, Gabe asked us to marry him!" and then Gabe says "What do you say, Max?" Max loved it and was excited - of course he said yes, too:)!! He absolutely ADORES Gabe and we are all soooo excited!! No date yet, but I'm sure I'll share it with you as soon as we know!
When I really think about it - it is kinda crazy...I started out this blog being a heart broken woman who had to write my feelings down instead of keeping them all in my heart. I knew if I did that I would soon break down...I needed this outlet and it always kept me going (with alot of help from my little man:) Now I'm writing on here in excitement about finding my prince...how things change so quickly. When I look back on my blog postings - it's amazing to see how time has changed me...how God has molded me. Of course I'm still a work in progress...but I am stronger and braver and happier than I ever thought I would be.
