I'm engaged!

I'm engaged!!! Friday Brent told me he wanted to take me out on a date, I got all dolled up and as we were headed to dinner he asked if we could stop by somewhere first. We headed out of town and stopped at the scenic overlook (where we had our first kiss). We were reminiscing about the last time we were there, which was after his mom's birtday in April. I told him that it was then that I thought I really love those people. He said, "I hope you want to love them for a long time." He had me sit down on a bench and he pulled out a ring box and said, "Jenni, I love you. Will you marry me?" I said,"yes!". We talked for a while and then finally he asked if he could put he ring on my finger. I had almost forgotten about the ring. It is beautiful! The most wonderful thing about it is that he used the diamond from his mom's ring and reset it in mine. He told me that before she died she told him she wanted me to have it. What a wonderful gift. I'm so excited to share my life with him! I know many of you have prayed for my husband and I assure you your prayers have been answered. Thanks for being involved in my life at different points in the journey. I will hopefull post a picture a current picture of me, my fiance' and the ring soon:)

I just reminded Brent that I'm still willing to stand in for him. Just let me know, I'm available anytime the Broncos aren't playing.
