Wordish Wednesday: I’m A Sucker…

The only picture we have from the night we got engaged.  It was too dark to take more and we didn’t want to waste film (yes, prior to the wonders of digital!).  What you don’t see is that Colin set one tea light for each month we’d been together (43) into the sand around our picnic blanket – I had to swear not to peek while he set up and lit them all.  Neither one of us can remember what he said, but it made me cry.  

Staged reaction to proposal taken by Colin the next day.  It’s at Spanish Banks Beach Park in Vancouver in case you wondered.

    Hahha, I don't even remember the exact day we got engaged …. although I could always ask him to dig out the receipt of the ring as he purposed the same day he bought the ring lol.

    Do you think it was easy on Dad and me?!?!? We waited ALL DAY for the phone call, knowing WHAT he planned to do, just not when and where! Congrats, and hang in there; they say the first hundred years are the hardest…
