engaged!


i don't think there's any one that reads this blog other than mike in texas that doesn't also read all my facebook posts or get regular emails from me. but as a special treat to those who do occasionally check here, i'm posting my engagement photo. what i love best is that we got engaged last wednesdayish and by saturday we had a date, were shopping for a ring and next thing we knew, i bought a new blouse and we were posing for an engagement picture. bret's brother took it (after proper encouragement and pressuring from me). we went to byu campus since i knew they had beautiful leaves. ever since i attended college there i have loved their leaves and had even dreamed of having my engagement photo taken with them. these were different leaves than the ones i used to admire (my "hood" at the y was pretty limited). after about 5 minutes of picture taking it started to rain heavily. that was the end of the photo session, and luckily it was successful!

I still read your blog! Congratulations...I really am so very happy for you.

And I agree on the BYU leaves. I loved walking around campus in fall, with no particular destination in mind.

Holy cow - and I better get an invitation - just kidding, you don't have to invite me to your reception, but I'd love to get you something for the special occasion. You are such a gem "Ward." and I know you're not going to be "Ward" for long, but I will always know you as "Ward." Keep us all updated on all the happenings up to the actual nuptial. CONGRATS!!!!
