The poor guy who, though wonderful and wise in every other way, is sadly mistaken if he thinks he's chosen a deserving girl, is John Phillips.
Answers to anticipated questions:
YES, he is the sweetest, kindest, and most amazing guy in the world. :)
The wedding shalt be in early August.
We do plan to stay in the area (for the next few years at least).
He's been courting me since November.
Yep; my dad HIGHLY approves! (Though he did threaten John with his chainsaws right before courtship began...)
He proposed "under the stars, way out in Iowa, as we were being driven around by a chauffeur." At least that's the "official" story...
(Yes; the rumors are true--he actually proposed in the back seat of his parents' truck on the way to a robotics competition! And yet he still managed to make it incredibly sweet and special. ;))
(The Robo Raiders had wayyy too much fun teasing us and taking "selfies" with us in the background...)
And NO, this is not an April Fool's day joke! I just have really bad timing when it comes to posting. :P
