I just realized in the middle of packing a zillion boxes that today was May 25th. Mr. Ella proposed to me on this date 31 years ago. We had driven from Abilene down to Morgan's Point where we ate at the Captain's Table Restaurant.
( It is no longer there which makes me feel old!)
We were over looking Belton Lake with a beautiful sunset when he popped the big question.
No ring, yet. That came in August. After all, we both were poor college students. Determined to live on Love. Hmm, that is a little harder than the fairy tale books.... We officially tied the knot in December that same year, 1980. I would include some photos, but they are packed and honestly the styles then were just plain ugly.
I saw this sign at a friend's house and it pretty much sums up how to make a marriage work!!
