Daniel is engaged! Cassandra Songster is the lucky girl and Daniel also is the lucky guy! There were plans made for the special moment of popping the question. Work went into creating a special atmosphere for the moment in our backyard. The arranged time was a little after 9:00pm Wednesday night. Daniel and Cassandra had not arrived at the house yet when the deluge hit that caused flooding and mudslides in Draper so outside was quickly not an option. We broke out candles and lights in the living room. I think that when there is something as significant as asking someone to marry them happens you want the ideal situation. But I think that when you are in love and you are either excited to ask or excited to say yes, it really doesn't matter where you are or what is going on, because nothing else matters at that moment. So, Daniel and Cassandra, congratulations and know that you are loved. And even though you might not have noticed much, we did try to make the setting, as Daniel said earlier, "As rediculously romantic as possible". Doing it in 15 minutes was less work than the mountain of work that went into the backyard, but both were done with the same amount of love.
We are so happy for you! Dad
