[So rather than doing the polite thing and emailing or calling all of our friends individually we thought we'd just POST IT TO HoP and let the word spread from there!]

Yes, it's true... Another Happy HoP Couple! biggrin

I secretly flew out to visit Molly this weekend and surprised her not only with watching her be the lovely May Queen but with a diamond engagement ring that my great-uncle hand crafted for her.

We're both jumping up and down so much that graemlins just don't do it justice.

Sometimes Life Is Perfect.

Love to you all from the happiest couple.

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

No...

NYC + Molly

or

NYC = romantic

But I guess since

Molly = romantic

then by transitivity

NYC + romantic

But I still prefer

Molly + NYC

biggrin

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

play time is allowed...
but depending what exactly's going on and exactly (where and) when you want it to be etc... it's really not that far...

I'm sure state-side types would like as much warning as poss to book tickets...etc...

Is the ring allowed to come to PDF?

I mean I have strict instructions from my mother to take it off when I'm gardening - I'm sure muddy hippy gnomey firespinning has got to be worse than flowers... wink

And then we sat for a bit, and then took a taxi back into town and celebrated with some Beltane folks that were still about. And then we went and snuggled at the train station til the sun came up. And then I jumped on a bus to the airport to a plane to New York.



eek Psst! NYC! You forgot to consummate the engagement! And on Beltane of all days...

I'm wondering if there aren't folks who simply don't read 'chat'... there are some big names and close friends who haven't dropped by yet.

Or maybe they all just need some time to get over the fact that Molly and I are both off the singles market. wink

Well, shall we go?

Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oooo baked goods! How about scones? And then I'll bring jam and cream and a teapot and we can have a proper tea party smile

(and since I don't like the idea of Not having my ring with me, maybe it'll just be around my neck)

I'm bouncing even more now that I have plane tickets and I'm in New York in 12 days biggrin bounce2
