Jody asked me to marry him, and I said yes!
(It's now been a week, and all the immediate family now knows, so I can finally post this.)
I am beyond happy, and still rather overwhelmed, as is he. There's a lot to think about and plan, and I am looking forward to so many things that were previously only hoped for.
Everyone wants to know when, and the official answer is:
We don't know yet!
I surprised Jody with a ring of his own, which we should be getting from the jeweler's soon--they should have been back from sizing today but that didn't happen--sad. Mine is very special, a five-stone diamond ring with a dainty white gold band that was his grandmother's. I'll try to get a picture next week.
Meanwhile... I guess I get to move up in the alphabet-- not that there's anywhere else to go! :)
