Saturday night I went to dinner at Baltimore’s Prime Rib. We were celebrating our one-year dativersary. I actually made a dress to wear for this date. But, it’s kind of ‘fallish’ (maple leaves/dark purple) and I never get to wear this dress I had made in China. I’ll have to post my new dress later this week.
I had some sea bass that was so delicious I just about licked my plate. I wanted to take the little potato skins, curl up into a ball and make one a little hammock for me.
And, somehow, between the wine and before dessert, this happened. Better yet, the band was playing one of my favorite sounds, What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong!
Somehow, I’ve beat the stats as a late 30s, college-educated black woman (otherwise known as the group “least likely to marry”) and have found the love of my life. I don’t know how this happened but I’m thankful :)
We told our parents that night and tried to text and call close friends the next morning. I did a terrible job of that. Umm, also, my *hand* hurts from stretching out my fingers and staring at my ring. I had to take ibuprofen and use a heat pad last night.
Ohhh!! My secret/private Pinterest board is about to be SUPER public!!
And, in true modern social media fashion, we are Facebook official. Which, of course, makes it totally real.
