he (finally) popped the question

At the Ambrose dinner table in Virginia, just before heading to the airport for Taylor and Beth’s flight back to Iraq, the family shared highs and lows of the day. Taylor’s turn came. His low was that they had to leave after a restful and eventful visit, and his high was, oh, Beth, will you marry me? I was on the opposite side of the country when this happened, so I’m embellishing the story they shared on Skype shortly after she said yes. I might have been a little too excited to listen carefully to every detail.


They look happy, huh? Well, so am I. Taylor knew on their first date a year ago that Beth was the one he’d been waiting a long time to come along.

Not long after our Skype conversation, this showed up on Facebook. There’s nothing like social networking to get the word out. Blogs too, right?

“What are their plans?” you ask. They’re heading back to work, so nothing is set for a wedding. We were patient for the proposal so I s’pose we can be patient for the wedding. I’ll keep you posted.
