She Said Yes!



Taylor proposed to that sweet girlfriend, Lauren, today!
Yep, he's the true romantic...drove out to Pennsylvania last month to ask her dad's
permission!  And he got down on one knee (awww)!  He even hired a
professional photographer to hide and capture the exact moment in pictures!




These photos are mine.  I'll post again when we get the real ones back!

Monday Taylor turns 21, so he's having quite the weekend, wouldn't you say?

♥♥♥

    1. I needed a girl
      in the real world
      not a cat,
      but a daughter at my mat!

      and Marmalade needed a red haired friend
      so he didn't feel so alone in his trend.
      hahaha.

    2. Well looks like all worked out grand
      There at your land
      Sure Marmy won't feel so left out now
      Maybe even give an extra meow

  31. Congratulations. Fifty-seven years ago, when I was home from Japan, on leave, Patty and I ran away, so to speak, and got married in Indiana. That was the only state you didn't need a blood test and didn't have to wait for a license. We did it in one day. My new father-in-law performed well, and cried when he found out we were married.

    You are very proud.

    I'm so happy to have been reading your posts backwards to see this! It has been too hot to stay on my lap top long, as it runs so hot, but today we have cooler temps in the 70's and I was enjoying catching up with you.

    The young couple look so perfect for each other ...I wish them much love and happiness always!
