I’m writing this post for the one person waaaay in the back of the universe who hasn’t yet heard…
I’M ENGAGED!!!! And even as I type that I have to take a moment and close my eyes. Take a deep breath. My life, it’s a dream.
As many of you may or may not know, I have been working on a very special book over the past few months. This book is about how the most incredible man in the world fell in love with me. After all, I was living the greatest love story, how could I not write it and share it with the world? But more than that, how could I not write a book to the man who gave me the most beautiful love and the most beautiful life? I was going to ask Buddy to marry me in the last chapter of the book. That was the plan.
But that’s the thing with plans, they just never are quite as good as the unplanned and they don’t always unfold the way you, well, planned. After all, Buddy coming into my life was not planned. And yet it was the best thing to ever happen to me.
We sat on my back porch sipping coffee and enjoying a quiet morning. And as happens so frequently with us, we ended up getting lost in each other’s gaze…for hours. Our hearts did all the talking. Our love and connection is crippling in the most wonderful of ways.
My book was still in the finishing stages and I hadn’t yet even finished the cover. It wasn’t ready. But I was.
And it might sound crazy but I felt like we were asking each other that question and answering over and over again. I couldn’t wait another minute… and, luckily, Buddy had a backup plan.
On June 22, 2014, hand in hand, we both stood and then kneeled on my back porch. Tears in our eyes and love connecting our hearts into one, we both, at the very same time, asked each other to marry each other. There were no flowers, no rings, no fancy clothes or fancy linens. No beautiful or exotic locations. There was just two people who were absolutely and forever lost in each other. Two people who wanted nothing more in this life than to share every waking moment with the other. Two people who were in love in the most sacred and deep and special of ways.
It was the best day of my life. So far. My best friend and soul mate, my confident, my partner, he agreed to spend the rest of his life with me. And he asked me to spend the rest of my life with him.
I can’t even begin to articulate how very happy I am. How honored I am that he wants me to be his wife. How honored I am that he wants to be my husband. I get to spend the rest of my life attempting to thank him for all the beautiful things he has done to my heart.
I love this man more than anyone has ever loved anyone or anything. And I can’t believe I get to keep doing that… forever.
So… I’M ENGAGED TO MARRY THE MOST WONDERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you hear something in the middle of the night, it’s me singing this from above the stars for everyone to hear.
As for my book, it’s still going to be published this summer.
Much love to you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who have supported our relationship. We’re so very happy to share this unbelievable journey with you.
