We all know I love Palettes & Pairings and will make/take any excuse to visit. Lucky for me, my friend, H, got a P&P party from her husband, P, as a gift. I was so excited and kept asking P what we were painting, but he would only tell me it was a surprise. When we arrived at P&P, each guest drew a letter from a box to paint. Ok, now I know what we're painting, but what does it mean? I had a theory that it was H's full name or maybe even an announcement of their new baby's name. I pondered this off and on all evening, but in the mean time we all painted and had a great time. Finally, it was time to take the group shot (the owners do this at the end of every class). We all lined up and they took a picture, but then started to rearrange us so the colors would work out better. One of the owners pointed at me and asked if I could hand my painting to the person beside me and come to the front. I was confused. As I was walking, he pointed to someone else and told them to come forward too. I turned around and here's what the paintings spelled:
Jeff was down on one knee in front of me holding out the ring. I was shocked. I didn't know what to say or do. He eventually stood up and had to flat out ask me if I was going to give him an answer. I, of course, said yes. I think I've repeated, "I can't believe you," more times than I can count this week because of Jeff and his sneakiness and H and P's "fibs" to keep the wool pulled over my eyes. Not at all what I expected, but I have to say this was my best P&P experience ever!
