to Jud and Sara on your engagement!!
In Sara's own words, here is the engagement story.
I am trying to not make an entire blog post...but here is the story for those who want to know.
On New Year's Eve we went on a dinner cruise. We started off the evening on the boat and Jud tried to make small talk. We see each other every day and talk about so many things that there is not much we do not know about each other. I tried to think of a conversation starter so I asked him what was his favorite moment from the past year. He said walking in the park with me. I then asked what did he hope to accomplish in the next year. He told me he would have to think about it (which is a typical Jud response). After some dancing and some dinner he said that he had thought of something. He then said that what he wanted to do over the next year was take more dance lessons with me. I thought, DANCE LESSONS! WOOHOO! Cool! Then he said that he wanted to learn more dances with me (we mostly swing right now) because he wanted to dance with me for the rest of his life. Then he said, "so I am wondering, would you marry me?" As the music was loud and I haven't been hearing so well lately, I said, "What?" Then it hit me...he just asked me to marry him! I thought, just in case I misheard him, I will let him ask again. When he did, my response was, "ARE YOU SERIOUS?" He said, "yeah." I said, "REALLY?" He said, "yeah." And then, of course, I said, "YES!"
It was a great evening, needless to say.
Thanks Sara! I hope you don't mind me doing a whole post about you guys! Also, can you e-mail me a pic of your ring sometime? :)
