I'm Engaged!!!

On Tuesday, December 5, 2006, I proposed to my beloved Saranna and she accepted!

For those who like gushy details:

We had been discussing marriage for some time, and had finally decided to get engaged. The original plan was to have a nice evening Wednesday, however, Tuesday morning, the stars aligned just right. I proposed in our bedroom, with Saranna sitting on the bed and me kneeling on the floor (oh how cute! they say...).

Wednesday, we went out to Jakes Famous Crawfish in Portland Oregon for a celebratory dinner.

Wedding plans are yet to be made, however, the thought is August 2007 in Portland, with the cermony in the Salmon St. Sanctuary of the First Unitarian Church.

I first met Saranna in August of 1999 when I travelled to the Pacific Northwest to attend a Continental Unitarian Universalist Young Adult conference. When I moved to the Portland area in 2002, Saranna was one of the familiar faces when I started attending the First Unitarian Church. We started dating shortly after a mutual friend's birthday party at a park where we took a nice walk together.

For those wondering, Saranna is into neither gaming nor LEGO, though she is totally supportive of both my hobbies (though she has made a reasonable request that the LEGO be contained so as to leave room for her and probable future little ones).
