And I got the surprise of my life the other day. Apparently the trip we took to see Master Chief up in Maryland was full of plotting, which I managed to entirely miss in favor of hanging out on the sand there with a few books. The other night we went out to one of our favorite restaurants here at Virginia Beach- and at the end of the meal, my sailor proposed. I was caught completely off guard, and made him repeat the question, because I was sure I wasn't possibly hearing that right. Oh geesh. So- we're engaged. No date, since that's pending what ship he goes to next. Wow.
I already have a gazillion thoughts on the dress I want to make. Silk eyelet, definitely. And obviously empire line. And short sleeves. I REALLY want to make my own cake, which might be a terrible idea, but I've been my family's cake baker for years. ;-) We're thinking small, just a party for our close friends and family. So here's a fancy wedding cake photo- this is from my best friend's wedding out in Seattle 3 years ago.
