|Boston trip in January|
He took her back to a beach on Lake Michigan where, when they were there last summer with a group of friends, they both realized each was "the one" the other had prayed for. He asked her father for permission to begin dating her.
He took her out to dinner at The Olive Garden near the beach.
Then they drove back to her home (which is quite a distance from us) and when they pulled up last night, her family had put up the Christmas lights from our tree (which he had to locate among various boxes in the garage) around their porch.
There were beautiful lavender and purple flowers he had purchased earlier over the porch swing.... and as she sat on the swing surrounded by flowers... he said something of which he cannot remember and gave her the ring.
I received a picture of her hand with the ring on it on my cell phone and texted back... did she say YES?
Of course, she did. :)
Miss M. will become a member of the family next spring.
