I thought I would let you all know that it really is my turn!! A couple of weeks ago Steve and I got engaged!! I could not be happier. We have no idea when we’ll set the date for — But I really thought I should share the news of our pending wedding.
Steve and I first started dating five years ago. He had a one way ticket to India that was booked for a few months after we began dating. So, we really thought that our relationship had an expire date. Seeing as he’d be gone for a year or so travelling around India and a variety of other countries. We had agreed to go our seperate ways at the time.
However, to my wonderful surprise, I kept getting these amazing packages from India. I can recall going to the post office to a rather disgusted-faced lady behind the counter, holding these grungy packages by the tip of the corner. They would come in hand sown canvas and would be filthy from the journey. I would be so excited to hear something from him, that I would tear it from her hand and rip the package open in the post office. These package would usually include such a warm letter that I would reread endlessly; as well as some trinket or pashmina or some other wonderful Maumbi or Goa find.
It took us a while to recoonect after that trip, but all these years later, we have a wonderful life together and I am so looking forward to spending the rest of my life with my very best friend. Life has such a way of working itself out. It makes me have faith that everything really does happen for a reason.
I can not wait to embark on this new adventure!!
Here is a little slideshow of the past few years in snapshots!
