Desi mom decided to have an engagement party for Desi and I, something that we were both very excited for. This would be for Desi’s friends, relatives, and friends of the family to show their support for us in celebration. It was such a wonderful evening and I really enjoyed all the amazing wishes from everyone. I’m sure it makes a huge difference to have the encouragement of others for things like this – thanks to everyone! The gifts were beyond anything I would have expected and Desi and I both appreciate it very much.

Here’s a photo of the amazing table spread:

The party happened to fall on October 31st, one of my favourite days of the year. In Bulgaria, Halloween is not a celebrated holiday so dressing up was new for Desi and her family and friends. The results were great though, and here is a shot of Desi dressed up as Marilyn Monroe:

And here is a shot of everyone that dressed up:

The evening was wonderful, and I got many compliments on my costume, as did Desi. One of the best Holloweens ever for sure! Oh, and of course here the photo of this year’s pumpkin:

    Hi Don & Desi

    What beautiful costumes you both had on. That was really nice of Desi’s Mom to have a party for you both. The food sure looks great, I bet you all enjoyed it. It is so nice to see photos of Desi’s Family & It will be even better when we get to meet them. Say Hi to all of the Family for us.

    Love you both

    Hi Don and Desi

    Looks like everyone was having a wonderful time at your engagement party. Who would have thought that Marilyn Monroe would be engaged to a pirate…what a stunning couple. Desi you look absolutely splendid in the pirate hat, I think this is my favorite photo. Second to that would be the very impressive pumpkin carving of a pirate ship. Of course I always cherish the photo’s of both of you together.

    Love Mom and Walter

    I always love your pumpkins every year Don! I didn’t even get to do one this year cuz all the grocery stores were sold out by the time I went to get one. So sorry I couldn’t make it to the engagement party, I was there in spirit though. Your costume looked pretty awesome, as did Desi’s! How original… Marilyn Monroe… I LOVE IT! Miss you guys so much! Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it down for Christmas so let me know if/when you will be over here in Sudbury so we can get together! See you New year’s though for sure! Love you!
