We're Engaged!

My oldest son, fresh from gunnery school at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma, proposed to his beautiful girlfriend, Mallory, over the weekend, and she said yes! 

At first, he was only going to get her ring from her grandpa and maybe propose next weekend.  But once he had the ring in his pocket, he couldn't stand it.  Within the hour he had proposed.

He put the ring in a box of bullets and asked her to hand him one for his gun.  When she opened the box she saw the ring and he popped the question.  Pretty fitting for a hardcore Army guy.

Her ring belonged to her great-grandmother and is quite stunning.  But on Mallory's delicate hand, the ring is just right.  I'd be afraid of losing it myself.  That's why when we got married, I opted for plain gold bands.  Not just any band though.  It's the widest one available.  I wanted people to know we were married!    

So, I'm going to be getting a new daughter!  I'm very excited about our growing family, and she's all I could have asked for...and more.  Way to go Garrett!

I'm a fellow blogger who is currently dealing with copyright infringement issues. In researching my stolen posts, I came across this post on a blog aggregator ... I found your blog to advise you of the theft (in case you don't know about it and care to do something) simply by typing the first paragraph of the stolen post into the URL box. Hope you decide to do something about the theft as it is the only way to bring down the offending blogger. Currently Google is working with me to delete the posts they stole from me.
