Great news, friends! Luke proposed last night...and I said yes!
After 11 years of dating, Luke and I are officially engaged. When I came home from work, he had decorated our apartment in a very festive, autumnal theme. He passed it off casually, saying that he wanted to decorate for Thanksgiving, since we didn't get to decorate for Halloween. Fair enough, I thought.
Then, he pointed out the little pumpkin he'd gotten at Crate & Barrel. I opened the top of it...and voila! The ring. And it's a beauty! We are ecstatic and can't wait to celebrate with everyone!
