Well, people, I'm engaged.
Pictured is my mom's Star Sapphire, which I gave to Lucy—via waitress—at the Causeway Café at Wrightsville Beach, NC on the day after Thanksgiving 2005. I love Miss Lucy and certainly have a lot to be thankful for this year. If you want to see pictures and words, here are pictures and words. Extra credit to Wyn and Lolli who correctly sussed what the Sapphire entries on my blog must mean.
By the way: We don't know The Date. Deal with it. ;-)
BUT we both love our many glorious friends, far and wide, and look forward to coming up with a special occasion for us all to convene.
