A long awaited dream come true...


I'm engaged! On Friday, February 10, Jason Petree asked me if I would be his wife and with all my heart, I said yes. I never knew that I could feel happiness like this, never knew that waiting for my perfect love would be this overwhelmingly wonderful. I'll have to tell the whole story later but it was perfect and funny and (as I'm sure many of you will agree) appropriately for both of us, on a stage! Today has certainly been the best Valentine's Day ever as I came back to Trinity to tell my waiting friends and my class. The kids immediately wanted to call me Mrs. Petree, but that will have to wait a while. Still, it has a nice ring to it! And speaking of the ring...

I'm dying to get the whole story out to you, Internet, but it's dark and I need to go home to celebrate Valentine's Day with my love, via a long-distance date over the phone. But here's a peek from the engagement day, the future Mr. and Mrs. Petree, nestled among the flowers at Dallas Arboretum...


  1. Congratulations to you both!

  2. Congrats Leslie!! Looking forward to the details...I am always secretly checking on you after I look at the adlards blog (and they rarely have anything up :)) I always come to check yours. This is great news! Praise the Lord.

  3. You Rock Leslie-

  4. Leslie! I am so excited for you both! Congrats! I can't wait to hear the details...and I love the ring! It looks beautiful!
