A change of last name

July 1, 2009

It’s what all the stylish monkeys are wearing this season

Mark proposed yesterday after an afternoon of wine tasting, as we snacked over beer and pretzels (which he points out is very German and thus appropriate).  I had, true to form, been needling him about getting engaged (since I knew he’d gone shopping for a ring 2 weeks ago and needed my ring size), so he responded with, “Well, do you want to get married?” and pulled the ring out of his pocket.  To which I of course responded, “Seriously?”

And then of course I said yes 🙂
