The more that time passes, the more accustomed we become to all the new gadgets and technological marvels that research, discovery, and innovation bring us. How many of us get up each day, reach for our smartphone, look at emails, check the weather, and scan FaceBook and Twitter, all before we even head out the door? How many of us listen to music at work, in the car, or at the gym on an iPod? How many of you are reading this on your smartphone or iPad or laptop right now? As for me, I’m writing this post on my laptop which wirelessly connects to the internet which, in turn, allows me to access the server that hosts my blog over half a continent away. How can anyone not reflect for a moment on everything I’ve just written and not think that’s pretty amazing?
It’s very exciting to say, “My fiancée and I…” or “This is Dana, my fiancée.” I wanted to capture the story of our engagement because, I think, it’s a great story:
To start, I knew that I loved Dana after only three months of us being together. I knew that I wanted to marry her after being together for less than a year. What I didn’t know was when or how to propose. When we went to see Dave Matthews Band over the September 2010 long weekend, a few of our friends were sure we’d come back engaged. Not so.
