My Life as a Grown-Up


I hope you are all sitting down…because I have BIG NEWS! HUGE! News I never expected to share! It rendered me speechless. Yes, it’s THAT BIG!

Below, please see my finger. It is newly adorned…

Yes, it’s true…last evening at approximately 8:00 PM, Bill asked me to do him the honor of being his wife. And I appear to have said yes, although it’s all a little fuzzy because I think I went into shock. I woke up this morning with a ring on my finger, so I am taking that as a good sign!

In all seriousness, I am very happy and excited to get on with the business of living life alongside the man I have loved for so long. So look for wedding planning information and more on the ride toward marital bliss as we embark on this life together!

  1. Thanks for the good wishes, everyone! Patrice – I finally know what the term “gobsmacked” means. I was absolutely floored…imagine your reaction times about 100.NME – Yes, we did work all that out…actually a few months ago. I was, however, waiting for action, instead of just words. That was my mantra…don’t tell me; show me. Well, I guess he showed me!

  2. Mary, I’m so happy for you. I’ve been reading your blog for a while, but haven’t posted yet. I just had to say Congratulations, cause I know this is just what you wanted. We miss you on the Diamonds board.Jaymie

  3. Love the ring, best wishes. Wedding planning is fun just don’t let the little things stress you out. I work in a flower shop and I can’t tell you the number of brides who come in with the attitude of “I can’t wait til this is over”. Enjoy every minute of it.

  4. I swear, I go on vacation for a week and this is what happens! Congratulations. I am so happy that this has all turned out the way that you wanted. Good luck to the both of you.
