David & I Are Engaged!


So … yeah … David and I arrived in Amsterdam without incident to celebrate our 6 year anniversary and … he got down on one knee and proposed marriage to me right on the exact spot were we met 6 years ago today. I happily said yes. That’s the short version … the longer version of our happy news is below. In light of this happy news, I have decided not to write the blog today so that David and I can get to celebrating our engagement. BUT, I do want to share a bit of our day with all of you amazing readers/friends who have kinda sorta been with us from the beginning of our relationship, which began 6 years ago today.

After we checked into the Lloyd Hotel hotel where we met back in 2006, David suggested that we go downstairs to take an anniversary photo in front of the bike rack where we met 6 years ago today. I thought that was a great idea so we made our way downstairs and started talking about how to take the photo, from what angle, etc. (I’m a stickler for detail so, yeah, it was a bit of a discussion). While we were talking, I thought I recognized my BFF Sarah but immediately put it out of my mind because we were in Amsterdam and Sarah was back home in Detroit at work as usual — and there was no way it could actually be her. David then went down on one knee, said some of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard in my life and presented me with a ring and a proposal of marriage. After I picked my jaw up off the ground, I said yes … and then freaked out! We laughed and cried a little … then decided to take a photo. He asked the girl nearby if she would take the photo for us … and IT WAS SARAH! David flew her out to Amsterdam to be here for our special moment. He knew that of all the people in the world that I would LOVE to be here with us, it had to be Sarah. AND THEN I FREAKED OUT AGAIN!

There are MILLIONS of other details that are far too numerous to detail here but David and I did want to share some part of our day with all y’all. It was because of THIS blog that I was brought to Amsterdam back in February of 2006 — which led to our meeting — and our engagement today. In a way, YOU have been with us all along so … we want to share our happiness with you.

As I said, no work for me today … I hope you don’t mind :) I’ll be back to blogging tomorrow, never fear.

For now … we celebrate. I hope YOU are having a fabulously fantastic day today. Love to you all!

    Ahhh! Congratulations from North Corktown!!! Been reading your blog for years and years and have to say that I’m GENUINELY geeked out over this news! Enjoy that anniversary and engagement!!

  • First of all I’d like to offer my warmest congratulations to you and David. I knew this day was going to come. I’ve been telling my boyfriend for at least the last 3 years that I thought you’d get married to him. It is really a shame that gay marriage is not fully legal yet in California (although the repeal of Prop 8 goes a long way to remedy the situation), but on the positive side the two of you could (and I think should) get married in New York. It’s a place you guys have spent many wonderful times and could be the site of an even more special time in your lives. I also thought it was the sweetest thing that David flew out Sarah to share in your happiness. I could think of no one else (other than David) that you’d want to be there with you right now. I wish you nothing but joy and happiness today and always. :)

  • Lizzy

    Congrats!!! So so happy for the both of you!! :)

  • Becca

    OMG! This totally made my day! Congrats a million times over! You’ve been this sane and reasonable, natural extension of my life for pretty much the last six years – at least. I find my self sounding totally “stalker-esque” but it totally feels like this far away older-brother-from-another-mother-AND-another-father finally is getting his happy ending.
    The vane starlet reality put aside your thoughts and insights have always been profound, just and fair. By being as outspoken about your-honest-oppinions as you have you’ve been this great source of hope. Hope that there are still reasonable people out there with the power to influence, who use that power with dignity and for good.
    Hope that there are still people who see past tradition and age and see what simply is reasonable, common sense – or at least what should be.
    I wish you both the very best and hope you keep on doing what you do. You do more than just report on other peoples’ lives – you affect peoples’ lives for the better just by writing down your thoughts.

  • laura cooper

    yay! congratulations!

  • Debho

We like the same people and yours is my most favorite blog and all of my friends and family know who I mean when I say “Trent said”. It’s slightly ridiculous but I enjoy you so thoroughly and could not be more happy for your happiness. You’re the best and I hope the best for you, good sir!

I am sooooooo delighted that you guys have decided to get hitched.

    Yours is the only gossip blog I have really kept up with over the years – I love that you have such a sweet, positive, authentic voice and that you’re not a narky horrid bitch like so many of the other gossip bloggers are.
