Tears of Joy!

A year ago today, in a beautiful wildflower meadow

on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon,

Frank asked me to marry him...

You all know what my answer was...  ;-)

 

 

All of this weeks photos were taken on that fateful day

 

 

I'm in the homestretch of extended hours

at the office.  Week four of four....

A very happy story Elizabeth. I wonder if the Grand Canyon has that effect on people.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Chad!
I imagine it does - we've seen weddings as well. It's a very moving, spiritual experience to be there.

You two are just so romantic.

A lovely photo, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile I think so, too! smile
Your beaming smile says it all, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh good!!
we do, but feel free to go on smile i like this happy shot, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile
Well... first I asked... "What? I mean, are you sure?"... When he assured me he was - then I said "YES! YES! Of course I will marry you!"
Now you know!
Certainly a day to remember Elizabeth, and a lovely image of the tow of you. I don't think either of us actually proposed to the other, we just assumed we'd found the right person and started to get everything arranged on the assumption we wanted to get married.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is Brian! Thank you!
My Dad and his wife, Linda had the same experience as you. Sometimes when it's right, it's just right... no discussion necessary!

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Awe, thanks Louis!
A picture tells a thousand words.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh good - then you won't need to read the book... smile

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Anne!
We're in the homestretch for sure!
I take it that Frank was the weeper smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh yes - you've no idea! smile
Y'all look so happy...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: So glad it shows! smile
it's wonderful that you captured the moment on film/digital Elizabeth...
it has been wonderful following the two of you back and forth between Blackpool and Flagstaff ever since...
but most of us knew what was going on long before this day...
Love to you both....Penny and ....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Peter! I'm so happy we thought to take this pic!
We sure appreciate all the love and support you and Penny have given- such good friends!
