Love Love Love

I love my wife, my kiddo, our dog, and most of all...MY LIFE! I couldn't ask for anything more than what I already have. I get to spend time with those that love me, while doing the things that I love!!!


Lesson Learned : Never Say Never

You are "looking" at a girl who is eating crow. But in the best way. This is a pie I DO NOT mind eating. On Saturday, sometime around 9 pm, I took back every last negative thing I had to say...

On Saturday, sometime around 9 pm, at the Texas state line, my girlfriend got down on one knee, in the freezing cold, and asked me to be her wife.

She chose the state line because we are both displaced Texans. We met through a friend that still lives in Texas. And we both had to move to the other side of the country to be able to find a "sweet southern girl."

The words that came out of her mouth were the sweetest things that I could ever have asked to hear. I don't know that there has ever been a more romantic proposal made to anyone. Even the movies could not have made this look or sound any sweeter. The actual words are for my ears only, but let me tell you this...she did say that I am someone that she never believed that she would find and that her life has not been the same since the day we came into each others' lives. There was a big long exceptionally thought out super sweet speech. Then she went down on one knee in the soggy grass. When she asked me to please marry her it brought me to tears. Then, my knees buckled. And I sat right down on her one knee lap. And she asked me to "please, just say yes."

And, of course, I did...

BTW, I love the irony of the state line sign. It should read: Abandon all courtesy and extend middle finger; Drive the REAL Texas way! :)
