Virginia Beach (aka Our Engagementmoon)

We spent August 9-12 in Virginia Beach for a much needed break from work for me and a celebration for Bobby of surviving his first year of dental school. We stayed at a cabin at the Cape Henry Inn, an armed forces resort on Fort Story, an army base next to Virginia Beach. The cabin was cute and cozy (minus the bugs in my bed the first night, but Bobby valiantly rescued me from those) and it was nice to just spend a few days with each other.
We spent most of our time at the beach or watching the olympics--and yes, Michael Phelps is my hero. On Monday afternoon we drove around trying to find a fresh fish market (harder than you might think in a town that is situated next to an ocean) and had a fish fry with smores for dessert.
That evening we went to the beach to watch an absolutely glorious sunset and enjoy our first FHE together. After a sweet time talking, Bobby got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. So yes, it is now official--we're engaged! No, the earth is not in danger of imminent destruction, and no the end is not near...But yes, Bobby and Maggie are getting married!

I just wanted to be the first person to leave a comment on your blog. Frankly I was surprised when Annie told me you had started a blog. I said, "The same Maggie who will never let anyone read her journal is a blogger?"

Annie and I want to hear more about the bed bug rescue.

Keep in touch!
