It's been an amazing couple of weeks. After spending ten days working in Maine on a great project for the University of New England, and visiting with my parents, I asked my best friend and beautiful girlfriend (now fiance) to marry me. We headed out to Orcas Island for the weekend to stay at Doe Bay, a quiet little bay in the San Juan's with one of the best restaurants I have been to. It was a great little trip with Terry during the frosty winter months in the Pacific Northwest. After we returned to Seattle, we met with a group of our friends for Thanksgiving and my sister surprised me by showing up from Nashville for the Thanksgiving/Birthday extravaganza. The last couple of weeks have been amazing.
