My Little (Big) Secret

I've ben keeping a secret from my blog readers. I think though it is time to tell all... especially considering how far things have gone.

Back in April I met a guy.

He liked Tolkien, Doctor Who, reading and theology. Just my kind of guy.

Naturally we started dating. Our favorite dates included going on long walks, watching movies, playing games and debating everything from Tolkien to theology. Most every Sunday he would come and spend time with my family and I.

When he sat through all five hours of Pride and Prejudice with me and then read it... I knew he was the one.  When he put up with my craziness, not to mention my family's craziness.... I knew he was the one. When I drug him through fields, rivers and over fences for a "relaxing" walk and he never complained... I knew he was the one. But most of all, when he said "I love you" and asked me to marry him... I knew he was the one.

So yes... we're engaged!!!!! I'm so excited to start this new journey in my life and I would covet your prayers as Brian and I prepare for marriage.

I cannot help but quote Jane Austen from her novel Pride and Prejudice: “I am the happiest creature in the world. Perhaps other people have said so before, but not one with such justice. I am happier even than Jane; she only smiles, I laugh.”
