So it would appear that I am getting married

by Veronica on February 22, 2011

in I'm getting married

Nathan and I have always done things backwards.

We got together and moved in almost instantly.

We had a baby, bought a house and then had another baby.

We’ve been together for over six years now and we knew we’d get married one day. Eventually.

Today, Nathan proposed to me, in the middle of our chaotic household.

Of course, I said yes.

So now, we’re getting married.

This is going to be fun.

Oh, and for the record, I require more detail than “Nathan proposed to me, in the middle of our chaotic household.” Adjectives. Adverbs. Parallel structure. Etc, etc. I don’t demand blogposts very often, but I am dying to know how it went down. Get to it, girl! πŸ˜€

frogpondsrock February 24, 2011 at 5:02 am

Yes I would like to hear that as well.

Nat3ds February 25, 2011 at 11:01 pm

Veronica in her computer chair (swiveled at me of course) next to the window, me on one knee facing marriage proposal recipient, two running screaming wet and naked children (just jumped out of the bath), two puppies chasing them trying to bite their ankles (playfully), and it was about……six pm (aest).

Jenn February 23, 2011 at 6:34 am
