Big news!

steampunk with abby
Just realized that not everyone on here reads my Twitter or has me friended on facebook (not that I actually USE facebook, but felt obligated to have one) so you didn't see the big news. Abby and I went to the Raleigh Renaissance Faire this weekend, all decked out in true Elizabethan fashion, and well, I'll just let the picture speak for itself:

Yes, that's a ring on her finger!
We stepped off to the side of the path for some pictures, and while she was busy snapping some of our friends, I slipped it out of my belt pouch and gave them the signal to get get their cameras ready. We switched places, my buddy Erik at the ready. I said to her, "Oh, I have an idea for a cute pic, but I need to take off my hat...". I slipped it off and dropped to one knee. The details of the conversation won't be reprinted here, but suffice it say that she said yes. I stood up, we kissed, and that's when we noticed the small crowd of onlookers both in and out of period garb applauding us.

Love you baby!

(addendum: nope, not an April Fool's joke, didn't even realize that it might be mistaken for such until Thunderclap pointed it out to me)

Please tell me that you'll be in period garb for your wedding as well. Like, BSG period. I want to see you guys in viper pilot uniforms.

We'll be doing Victorian for the wedding actually.

(So naturally for the reception I'm busting out the goggles and brass accessories; full steam ahead!)

Nice. Have your officiant dress up as a steam-powered mech. A mech with one of those collars. That would look amazing :)

Woo! So happy for you.

Also, I love that you posted this on April fool's day :)

Just realized that actually. That's funny, I so didn't make that connection.

I was momentarily wary of the fact that you posted this on April Fool's Day, but then I thought, "Who the hell would make an April Fool's joke out of proposing?"

Well, I'm sure there are some people, but they're not you.

Congratulations! I was beginning to wonder if you were going to let her get away...

HOOORAY!!!! That is so great!

Awesome! I for one would melt if a guy proposed to me at the Renaissance Fair; and if I have a choice, I'd love to do a Rennie wedding some day...
