Our Song

B proposed to me 7 years ago today.

He took me to the location of our first date -- his friend's backyard. B was scheduled to leave 3 days later for a new job in TX. We had already talked about getting married, so it was just a matter of when he was going to pop the question...and we were running out of time.

While we were sitting by the pool of his friend's house, he pulled out the most gorgeous ring...and asked me if I would marry him. It was so sweet!

Later I found out that he would have asked me sooner, but he wanted to have the ring in hand when he asked, and it had to be custom made.

Of course, I said yes! =)

This song by Don Henley was played while we lit the unity candle at our wedding. I LOVE the words (see my post above for more on our wedding and to read the lyrics). B is the love of my life...my one and only. I love you, B!

That's a great song. I love Don Henley, but I don't think I'd heard that one before.

I don't remember ever hearing this story...so sweet!

B planned on telling the story at our reception...and it would be the first time his friend heard it, too...since we didn't tell him that day.

BUT, his friend didn't show at the wedding!! And we've lost touch since. As far as we know, he still doesn't know that we got engaged in his back yard!
