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):
