Just a little place for me to post to my hearts content. My crafts and creations, photos and thoughts.

from "I will" to "I do" and everything in between.

So It has happened, (well actually a few months ago now) We are FINALLY engaged!
It took the boy 10 years, but the glorious day came.
on October 29th,on our 10 year "dating" anniversary(also his birthday),
my sweetie woke me up, got onto his knee and opened the ring box. I teared up, and smiled.
I had teased him for years that I wanted an unexpected, surprise of a proposal. um, this it was.
Just the day before I was talking with a good friend on the phone. "do you think he'll do it tomorrow? your 10 year?" No waaay i said and thought. We have been in each others faces
every non-working, waking and sleeping moment for the past 10 years. and for the past year, even more so, working on our first home, our personal "Money Pit". :)
So yes! when he came to my side of the bed before our normal wake up for work time, I thought perhaps it was just a cute little anniversary morning kiss. Then it took over. Whats he doing? why is he on the floor? I'm half awake, this must be important. He smiled devilishly, and popped an open ring box into my sight. You know, I'm not sure of what was even said. Giddiness, smiles, some tears of joy and then phone calls to Mom, Dad and my sister.
I suddenly remembered it was a Friday morning. " you have to go to work" I said with a frown, I think he thought I was crazy. "of course i took the day off" he said and laughed.
I desperately need to get back into crafting, creating, imagining and doing.
This wedding may be just the thing i need to kick start myself back into creativity.
I want to make as much as possible. It will be a simple, yet elegant, do-it-myself, homespun and homemade type of occasion. I mean what better way to incorporate all of my loves?
Crafting, baking, planning, gardening & lists, endless lists! I cannot wait!
