Marriage Monday-Our Engagement

November, 1984, my prince charming, otherwise known as Eddie or Lovebug, took me out for a wonderful dinner. When he took me home after our dinner, I could tell he was very nervous, because he was so quiet. We sat in the car talking, and then I told him I had to go inside. He said, no, not right now. I said ok, what is it honey? He got out of the car, came around to my side, and helped me out.  We walked over by a tree that stood in the yard. Eddie got down on one knee, my heart begin to pound very fast in my chest, as my eyes filled with tears. He softly said, Sweetheart, you know that I love you right? I said, yes, and you know that I love you. He took my hand in his, and said, will you please make me the happiest man in the world, by saying you will spend the rest of your life with me? Will you marry me, and become Mrs. Oldham? I could not believe what was happening, I was so happy. I dropped to one knee, looked him in his gorgeous eyes, and said, will you marry me, and make all my dreams come true? We both said yes at the same time. We then hugged like what seemed forever. On April 6th 1985, two hearts became one, and our love continues to grow.

A joint proposal?! How wonderful. You two are jsut amazing together.

e-Dad said I was "trembling" in his story of his proposal, but actually my heart was POUNDING really hard... just like you've described. And later, walking down the aisle my knees were actually knocking together. Funny isn't it?

Thanks for joining us for Marriage Monday during such a busy season, Denise.

Hugs, e-Mom ღ
