We're Engaged!!!

Happy New Year, everyone! 2007 is off to a great start!


eSuitor and I were in San Diego for New Year's Eve, which was lots of fun. We had dinner with some friends, watched Dream Girls (which we loved), and did a little dancing to welcome the New Year. He suggested that we stop in La Jolla this morning for some breakfast on our way back up to LA. Considering that we like checking out cool places in California and that we often go out for breakfast on the weekends, it didn't seem at all like an out-of-the-ordinary suggestion. We ate at a cafe with a pretty view of the water. Then, we decided to walk up a trail to the top of a cliff to take in the scenery. We sat down on a bench and looked out at the sea. I asked eSuitor if he wanted to talk about our New Year's resolutions. He said that he would indeed. He said that he had one in particular in mind--getting married--and he wondered what I would think about that. I told him that I liked that resolution a lot. Then he said some beautiful and sweet things to me about how much I mean to him and how much he loves me and concluded that getting married would be a definite resolution. "But we can't do that without a ring," he said. Then he put his hand in his pocket and pulled out the lovliest ring, dropped to one knee and asked, "Will you marry me?" I said, "Yes."


Then we kissed.





This is the ring. It's a canary diamond surrounded by pretty white sparklers!





This is the place where we got engaged. I am so blessed and feel truly honored to be marrying such a wonderful man. I love him so much, and my heart is full!

Congrats, I knew this was coming, and only a month or sow behind Sara and I. 2006 was a great year, but 2007 is the year that we are changing who we plan to spend the rest of our lives with, something tells me it's going to be blow 2006 out of the water and it'll be an incredible year. Definately a busy spring and early June for sure!

Thank you so much for the Christmas wishes. Congrats on your engagement! I love the whole idea of marriage. God was doing some of his best thinking with that whole two becoming one thing.

May God find you joyfully serving him together. May God make the stars shine upon your faces.

Jen Bates said...

YEAH!! I'm so happy for you Tracy! I knew from the moment you announced in Bible Study that you were thinking about moving to NY or CA that God was going to send you to CA for a reason other than acting. It's something I've felt in my heart and I'm so thrilled for you and Brian. You are both blessed. Can't wait to see you and meet Brian. (Sorry we missed you at Thanksgiving!!!)
All our love to you both ~ Steve, Jen, Abi and the peanut.

Wow Tracy, God did good for both of you! You definitely made the right decision to go to L.A. instead of NY. I can't tell you how happy I am for you. I enjoyed your blog. I will keep checking it for additional exciting news!

Oh no! The internet can help you find love but I find it has failed me in posting a comment to my bes frenny´s blog to tell her how thrilled I am for her! I was saying how pretty you look in these pictures and how deeply happy I am for you and Brian. God is good. And hey, nice background to get engaged to. And hey, even nicer ring! I can´t wait to see it sparkle in person. You´re gonna be able to do some serious pretty hands with that one!

I love you so,
Ad

Congratulations to you guys! Glad to have been with you during dinner, the movie and the dancing before the big day! E-fiancee really hid it well! We didn't know! Erin and I are so happy for you guys! Tracy, It's been good to get to know you more these past couple of months. He picked a good one! :)
