So, I decided to come home Saturday night after Art Fest this year. A 2-hour drive including the Edmonds-Kingston ferry trip...not too bad. I left after the show-and -tell, so I was on the road around 8:30 pm. I called Collin (my boyfriend) to let him know and he said, "I'm so excited to see you I miss you a lot honey" (awww...so sweet). Then he asked me to call him when I get close. I said, "you bet but don't wait up if you're tired...just go to sleep. " He said OK. So, I get to our exit off of I-90 and call him. It's about 11:15 pm. he's wide awake....our bedtime is usually about 8:00 pm...so I'm thinking..."huh...he's up late. He must really miss me" ...Then I drive down our little road and I see him in the living room window watching for me. Wow-he must REALLY miss me......the porch light it out too...hmm...need to remember to replace the bulb again. I drive into the driveway and see a big sign on the garage door that says, "WiLL YOU MARRY ME?" WHAT?!?! Holy COW!!! I start laughing...I'm so happy!!! I get out of the car (completely exhausted from Art Fest) and he opens the door..."Honey!!" I say....he's smiling and hugging me...we go upstairs and he hands me a beautiful little wrapped Tiffany's box...OH MY GAWD I think....I open it and it's gorgeous!
"Honey, will you marry me?" he says.... .01794 seconds later I say "Yes, honey, of course I will marry you!!!".
Then we each had about 1/4 glass of champagne and went to sleep -all smiles and joy!!
