Happy News for Me!Posted by Aly on 12/02/03 at 13:15 (139159)
I was off-line for many days and missed out on all the Heelspurs messages. Maybe one day I'll have time to catch up!
I just wanted to share with the world that my boyfriend of 4 years proposed on Saturday night! I've been waiting a long time and it finally happened. :) :) :)
We hope to find a little white church in Vermont and be married in the fall, with the colors in full bloom - if we can find a church for that time next year that isn't booked already! So if by some remote chance anyone happens to know of a nice place, do let me know.
As for the feet - I'm assuming there'll be a nice pair of New Balance or Birkenstocks under my wedding gown!! Here's to hoping no one notices!
Thanks for letting me share my happy news!! :)

Congratulations Aly !!
I can feel the excitment in your post, I know you must be thrilled.
After dating for 4 yrs this must be the man for you.
Again congratulations, and God bless you both as you begin a new life together.

Congratulations to you and your boyfriend. I'm sure either New Balance or Birks would go wonderfully with your wedding gown. There's nothing like happy feet at a happy occasion!

Congratulations! Got any pointers for my daughter? It must be getting close to 4 years with the same guy. I'm thinking you're busted in Birks when it comes to the garter thing. Vermont, fall, how could you go wrong.

Aly this is wonderful news! Congratulations to you and I sure hope you find that 'perfect' church in Vermont so you can take lots of perfect photos! :)

Thanks Judy! The pressure's on to find a place - I have already found the photographer I want, but don't have a place / date yet so I can't book her. So many details...but it's fun. :)

We have you covered if you're in need of old shoes to tie to the back of the wedding limo or carriage. Between all of us, we have enough 'good' unused shoes to cover cars for the entire wedding party. You just let us know where to send them:*
Best wishes and years of happiness.
Re: Happy News for Me!Aly on 12/04/03 at 14:57 (139350)
LOL! Man, could you imagine how long the trail of shoes would be???! :P
