Miss Rehoboth Gets Engaged!

Dear DCNearlyweds Readers,

Yes it's true - he asked and I said yes. Well, that's not exactly how it went, but that was the end result. He popped the question in the middle of the ferry ride between Lewes, DE & Cape May, NJ. While I was gazing out at the wide waters of the Delaware Bay, he humbly sunk to one knee and opened that little green box...I turned and exclaimed (thinking this wasn't going to happen before September '08) "OMG! You're not really going to do this right now, are you?" Probably not the response he expected, but when he confirmed it was the real deal, I said "Of course!" and he breathed a sigh of relief. We then had a fabulous weekend in Victorian Cape May, NJ at the sweetest little historic B&B.

Now that you know my story, a bit of background about myself might be nice to share. I am a Rehoboth Beach native, although I went to school in Wilmington, DE. My now-fiance was my high school BF, college comrade, and post-college buddy. We were originally introduced by my older sister at the ripe old age of 15. A year after college, I moved to Philly, ultimately ending up here in DC, and we lost touch. Last summer, the fiance (who I'll refer to from now on as DRB) ran into my brother, who reconnected us. Our first date was in Rehoboth at the cutest outdoor bistro, Cafe Sole - he took the ferry over from the Jersey shore to have lunch with me. In keeping with my true nature (read: no filter between my thoughts and what comes out of my mouth as evidenced above), one of my first declarations that August afternoon was to inform him that "I did not want a boyfriend." Luckily, he was not deterred. And, the rest is history.

Looking forward to sharing my wedding planning trials and tribulations with the dear readers of DC Nearlyweds. Please feel free to leave feedback - I definitely welcome thoughts and guidance through this process.
