They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Nothing could be truer than this one!

Our Tyler proposed to his beautiful Lara yesterday afternoon in Geneva, Illinois.

Unbeknownst to her, he brought back a special ring he had made for her in Prague this summer.

And at just the right time yesterday, he happily slipped that beautiful ring onto her finger as she said "YES" to his proposal!!

We adore Lara (and of course, Tyler too!) so are REJOICING today in the coming together of these two dear people!!!

I have prayed for our children's spouses since they were very young. How very special to see who God chose for Tyler!

We love you Lara! We love you Tyler!


  1. I couldn't be happier for all of you because, like you said, this isn't just an answer to prayer for Lara and Tyler but is the answer to years of each family praying for spouses for your kids. I love that I can be an aunt in all of this and join in the story and the celebration! Love you so much :o)

  2. What GREAT news!!! Can't wait to meet Lara! So look forward to experiencing this next chapter in the Patty family!! Love you all!

  3. Wonderful news. You'll certainly be a delight this week as you retell the story.

  4. When I saw the first picture, I thought it was a picture of Dave proposing to you, Connie! That is so great that the Lord has faithfully answered your prayers for Tyler's mate.

  5. How did I miss this post?!?!?!? What great news- congratulations, Tyler and Lara.
