Love Is In the Air

22 Jun

On June 11th, exciting things took place in my brother’s life. Stephen, my “little” bro who stands 6′ 4″, got on his knee and asked the love of his life to marry him! I’m so happy and pleased that my dear friend Liz Parry said yes! Liz will make such a wonderful wife and I think my brother is a very lucky guy!

Their little story of how this special and memorable event took place is written below in Liz’ own words.

Once upon a time two people fell in love
And all who knew them, knew that they were meant to be made one
And one day when the young man took his lady for a walk
He decided they should try to climb up to a mountain top
And when they made it to the edge they viewed the scenery
Ate lunch and talked and soaked up sun, enjoyed each other’s company
And so as they were getting ready for the walk back down
She turned and saw him waiting there, with one knee on the ground!
He told her of his love for her and how he felt inside
And when he asked her to marry him, she began to cry
She took the ring he offered her and put it on her hand
And told him, yes, she’d marry him and pulled him up to stand
Then from edge of the mountain top, across the hilly range
She let her voice ring loud and clear and shouted, I’M ENGAGED!
