CaliValleyGirl-friend is now CaliValleyFiancée

How’s this for the perfect backdrop to a proposal?

I couldn't help but think when we taking this picture: "oh, I am sooo grimey, if only I had known." But on the other hand I was quite flattered that even at my grimiest I was apparently still wife-material. I love it how we are both beaming in this photo. I am so freaking excited, because I just got engaged, and I guess my *ahem* fiancé is so happy that he pulled it off without me getting any whiff of suspicion.

We got back home in time to clean up for the New Years Party. What a way to start a new year! Last year I was missing my boyfriend, and this year I was hanging with my fiancé. What a difference a year makes!

We're getting married...whoo hoo. The journey was amazing up to now, and I hope like good wine it will get better with age!

Congratulations to the pretty little lady and her handsome hooker. My Sprout just got married a couple of weeks ago. Weddings are so much fun. Please keep your loyal fans abreast of all the wedding activities (and make him wear his dress blues - it's too cool).

Ain't love grand?
