Well folks, after five years, he finally asked me! :)
Last Friday (December 19, 2008), Tim and I went to Austin for a couple of days to visit with friends and family, and to celebrate my 24th birthday. We woke up at 6 am so we could get to Austin in time for Tim to play in the annual Tuba Christmas concert on the steps of the capital. This was his 6th year in a row to play! The concert was a lot of fun, as always. Afterward, we got Rudy's BBQ and had a picnic on Mt. Bonnell, walked around in a park, had dinner at Uchi (an upscale Japanese restaurant), went to the Trail of Lights (like every year!), and then he took me to a special spot of ours. For my 19th birthday he took me to a quiet area on Town Lake and played Christmas songs on his baritone for me. We went back (5 years later) and I got to pick a few songs for him to play for me. The little picnic table we sat was the perfect spot for us to have a moment to ourselves. After, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!! :) Of course I said yes! :D The ring is a gorgeous round solitaire that glistens in any amount of light. I'm very excited and oh so happy that I get to marry my best friend!
Now I have wedding planning to do on top of writing my massive paper for the journal I am on (Houston Business and Tax Law Journal), but I can't stop smiling anyway!
I promise I will start writing about law school and business school, but I had to share my story. :)
