Monica and I Are OFFICIAL!

Well, it is REALLY official! Monica and I are engaged!  It worked out amazingly well.  I asked her manager, Don King (NOT the fight promoter!) if he would call a business meeting for their department.  No one else knew, so they thought it was just a regular business lunch.  But, my surprise was in the works!  I called all of our friends to come be with us.  All of our friends an myself were hiding in a back room.  So, at the beginning of the lunch, all of our friends walked out from our secret location.  When she saw them, she knew then what was going on (she’s a smart girl!).  They stood around her table at the restaurant staring at her and smiling.  Then I came out in a suit and tie with a dozen roses.  I read a note to her I wrote. (It is below this entry).  I just kept looking at the paper, saying to myself “read the paper.  Just read the paper.  Keep reading the paper”.  I knew if I looked in her eyes I would lose it and cry. Then I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me.  She stuck her hand out, eagerly wanting the ring.  I said “Wait - you haven’t said yes”.  So, she yelled “Yes! Yes! Yes!” 

I am a very blessed man!  So, now the wedding plans begin!  Our date is June 21st.  More to come!

Many thanks to all of those who left work and busy schedules to be there.  Special thanks to Don King for arranging the lunch meeting AND keeping it secret.  Also, Elizabeth and Andrea Bettio - you guys are awesome!  Thanks for helping set up all the details at the restaurant!  Love you, both!

Also, my good friend and fabulous photographer - Tim Goodchild.  Many, many thanks for the great pictures.  You ROCK!
