Countdown: exactly 6 months until Jeffery & Katie Beth get hitched forever! Excited for this brother of mine to take the next step with the love of his life.
“There comes a moment in the life of almost every man when, his heart beating like a Nasmyth hammer, with faltering voice and his brain in a whirl, he takes fate in his hands, and tremblingly asks one of the gentler sex to be his—wife. Some men there are—but how few!—who go into “popping the question” in a business-like way, that simply leaves romance out in the cold and Cupid freezing to death. But better the young fellows who propose in the red-hot flush of love. The master writers of fiction show us, that even though every girl is aware that her adorer is about the put the fateful question, she is seldom able to control her agitation and that even the small word of “Yes,” is very difficult to pronounce. She says “Yes” with all the fervor that one word can convey coming direct from the heart. The noblest offer a man can make a woman is marriage, and woe to those who offer it lightly! The lamp lighted at the fateful moment spell-binds the young, and burns with radiance on into middle life.” (Introduction to How Heroes of Fiction Propose and How Heroines Reply, 1890)
Can’t wait to celebrate with you, lovebirds!
