Big News

Ok, I realize that I am being quite prolific today, but that is because we have free internet and I can finally post pictures. Plus, Mia and I are using the time in Sweden to relax and recharge a bit before Prague. Anyway, on to the "Big News".

Three days ago, on August 19th, 2005, in Tivoli Park in Copenhagen, Denmark, I asked Mia to marry me, and she said yes (not before asking if I was joking of course). So, we are officially engaged to be married. Scary, no doubt, but after almost four years, I know that she's the one for me.

I asked in Tivoli Park, which is the oldest amusement park in Europe. We were by a lake in the park at night. The trees, lake, and fountains were all awash with beautiful lights and a concert was going on in the background. It was beautiful. I asked under one of the trees next to the lake. It was wonderful.

I'm sorry that I can't tell every one of you in person, or at least by email (although not those of you that I don't know, as I have no idea who reads this), but all of my email addresses are saved on my computer at home.

So, now I continue the trip not with my girlfriend, but with my fiancee (weird to type that). Anyway, here's a picture of the happy couple. You'll notice that after 4 years we're already starting to look like eachother. . . .


The park/lake where I asked (I know it's dark, but it's the best I can do right now):

Congrats Rosey (and Mia)! Glad to hear it. While I was reading of your journeys the other day Sofia asked me when you were going to ask...guess that pretty much answers it. Anyway, I'm happy for you both. Talk to you soon and travel safe.

Is that what it takes to get a girl to move to Harrisburg?Woo-hoo. Congrats to you both.

Was there an actual ring involved?

NegativeMode said...

Yes, there was an actual ring, although not an "engagement ring" in the traditional sense. It was a silver ring from Tiffany's. Sort of a place-holder until we get home and can get a proper big azz diamond. The ring is very nice though and Mia will wear it always (or until she has several big azz diamond rings).
