On getting married

Yep you read that right

The Girl Next Door,

the one who swore she would never marry again....

is getting married.

OF COURSE to the Captain, silly.

He gave me a sapphire so perfect (totally perfect)

and asked me to build something with him.

It took a little coaching, but I figured out he meant MARRIAGE.

on our little private beach (pictured in the header).

Somehow we're cramming 90 people in that tiny space...what happened to the "20 people on a beach in shorts" thing we originally thought about?

He truly is the perfect boyfriend, the perfect fiancĂ©, and headed towards the perfect husband.  I am richly blessed.

Daughter (heading off to law school in a few weeks!!!!!) as my maid of Honor.
Son (college graduate and gainfully employed!!!!!) AND Dada walking me down the aisle.
My mother being Matriarch and all that.

Sigh....what a difference since the first day of this blog, no?

I'd count my blessings, but they are too numerous.....
