    Smile I have an announcement to make!

    I wanted everyone to know that today mrshonts proposed to me and I said YES! Mrshonts is a truly wonderful man and I am incredibly happy.

    He was very old fashioned and asked my parents permission first. He had always thought my dad was intimidating, but I assured him that dad (and mom... and my brother) had nothing but good things to say about him.

    We will be tying the knot in around six months in a very small, private ceremony. We met on eHarmony.com in January. That may seem a short time, but we've "known" for several months that we were right for each other.

    I have asked my personal friend and CombatCarry/theHighRoad member Preacherman to do the honors. He said he would gladly do it, and I hope his back recovery is swift for his sake and he is able to perform the ceremony. Having a good friend marry us means a lot!

    Mrshonts surprised me with a 1 carat, asscher-cut diamond and platinum engagement ring, surrounded by smaller diamonds, and three on each side of the leaf-engraved band. It was custom made by J. Yontef Diamonds here in Nashville, from design specs mrshonts planned. The photo does not do it justice!

    Call me mrsshonts!
