Engaged!

Just got back from the best vacation ever. In addition to cycling & running, my boyfriend ('fiance' now -- that will take some getting used to) and I also share a tremendous love of the outdoors. We went on a backpacking/canoeing trip in Ontario (Algonquin park, for those familiar with it). Had amazing weather the whole time, and that's saying something, given my bad luck with camping & rainstorms. We backpacked for 4 days and then did canoeing for 2 days, camping at nearly a different site each day. The trees were beginning to change color, which made for great views everywhere we went. On the last day of the trip, he proposed, just as we were about to pack up camp for the last time and paddle back to the canoe livery. I was surprised that he had carried the ring with him the whole trip, waiting for the right moment! (I never expected him to bring it to Canada, let alone for a backwoods trip!) Yep, I've agreed to marry him. We haven't set a specific date, but it will be sometime in 2005. WOO! Just had to share my happy news! (Thanks for 'listening'!)

Hey, great idea. Hike out into the middle of nowhere all alone and then propose. Like you're gonna say no.

Who says romance is dead.

It's on the list! I'm already scouring the newspaper classifieds for a used tandem. And, yes, it will be a 'budget' wedding. I'd rather put the money toward a nice honeymoon & some new bike stuff anyway. The last thing I want is a big, 'froofy' show! Hehe!

Thanks for the congrats, everyone!
