I am overjoyed with this encouraging community of writers. During my writing breaks, you might find me down a rabbit hole searching family history or above ground hanging out with live family members.

Chapter 5 of the book Highlights of Home
NaPoWriMo 5 - Dizain
"E for Engaged in the Family Room" by Mama Baer

As I walk through the downstairs fam'ly room
I'm wearing my fav'rite green sweater dress,
at least, in my mem'ry. Love's in full bloom.
A ring box wrapped up was easy to guess.
Valentine's night was perfection. No less.
The limo; the fanciest place in town;
your roommates in tuxes helped it go down.
You wore your brown suit. It went by too fast.
Table for two after being downtown
right here, in this room, I said "yes" at last!


The book continues with F is the Fireplace. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
I thought he forgot what day it was. My boyfriend had not invited me on a Valentine's date. For consolation, I went with my family to deliver a treat to my grandparents. Unbeknownst to me, they were all in on the surprise. James picked me up in a limo at my grandparents' home. Mom had taken my dress to Grandma's. I quickly changed. The fancy restaurant agreed to allow his two roommates to wait our table. After a romantic dinner, we were escorted back to my parents house where a cozy table for two and dessert awaited us near a warm fireplace. The rest is history. Forty-one years ago!
