Engagement!

I proposed to Andrea on our Outer Banks vacation Sunday night, on the second day we were there.  I knew of a great place to watch the sunset at a boat ramp that looks over the Palmico sound, or more specifically, Kitty Hawk Bay.  The sunset got obscured a little by cloudiness, but it was definitely a beautiful evening that we were looking out upon.   It wasn’t long after we go there that I popped the question and presented the ring to her.  We then said a prayer together to bless the upcoming relationship together.  We sat there and enjoyed the sunset for about a half hour more or so until some kids showed up and sort of broke the romantic mood.

On the way back, I played the song “City on our knees” by Toby mac.  The lyrics being very approperiate

If you gotta start somewhere why not here
If you gotta start sometime why not now
If we gotta start somewhere I say here
If we gotta start sometime I say now
Through the fog there is hope in the distance
From cathedrals to third world missions
Love will fall to the earth like a crashing wave

Tonight’s the night
For the sinners and the saints
Two worlds collide in a beautiful display
It’s all love tonight
When we step across the line
We can sail across the sea
To a city with one king
A city on our knees
A city on our knees
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

If you gotta start somewhere why not here
If you gotta start sometime why not now
If we gotta start somewhere I say here
If we gotta start sometime I say now
Through the fog there is hope in the distance
From cathedrals to third world missions
Love will fall to the earth like a crashing wave

Tonight’s the night
For the sinners and the saints
Two worlds collide in a beautiful display
It’s all love tonight
When we step across the line
We can sail across the sea
To a city with one king
A city on our knees
A city on our knees
Oh-oh-oh

Tonight couldn’t last forever
We are one choice from together
Tonight couldn’t last forever
Ooh
Tonight couldn’t last forever
We are one choice from together
As family
We’re family
Oh Tonight couldn’t last forever
We are one choice from together
You and me
Ya, you and me
Tonight’s the night
For the sinners and the saints
Two worlds collide
In a glorious display
Cuz its all love tonight
When we step across the line
We can sail across the sea
To a city with one king
A city on our knees
A city on our knees
Oh oh oh
A city on our knees
A city on our knees
Oh oh oh
If we gotta start somewhere why not here
If we gotta start sometime why not now

She was not expecting me to propose to her on the trip, but likewise, was overwhelmed with joy, and so was I!

I was interested in getting her a ring and was looking around a little when my mother gave me my grandmother’s old ring (her mother’s).  The setting is platnum with a 1/4 carat diamond.  The ring is a size, so it will need to be sized up for Andrea.  Andrea wore the ring on her little finger throughout the trip till we got back to town.  I went to Adolph’s jewelers and got the ring re-sized to fit her finger.  They did an awesome job polishing it up and making it look like it was brand new!
