Tell us about the proposal: It was the Friday before Christmas, 2009 and we were enjoying a few cocktails and admiring the Christmas tree. I noticed a sparkle hanging in front of our first Christmas ornament! My jaw dropped…Gene’s side of the story is that it took me 15 minutes to notice the bling! I said YES! (of course) and we made calls to my parents…my Dad was happy to report that he already knew, as Gene drove from Wilmington to the beach the night before to ask for my hand.
