Side note: It's amazing to look back and see that THIS and THIS and THIS and THIS have led to THIS :) I guess it really is true what they say: When it's right you just know. Seriously. cannot. stop. smiling. :-D

Once again, it has been a while. I will not beat myself up for that. Life has been busy. It happens. And it has been busy for so many great reasons! I've been truly blessed these past months...I've been working fairly steadily, progressing in university distance education courses, continuing to absorb soulful literature and TV programming, writing in a gratitude journal almost daily, making a conscious effort to do things that bring me joy and to show up and be present in my own life. And all of those things mean that I feel much happier and less stressed in the average day. Oh, yeah, and I'm also GETTING MARRIED! Gasp! I know, right? When did this happen??? Well, fiancé and I had been talking about it for some time and looking at rings off and on for about a year when it finally hit me: this is not going to happen if we don't make it happen, and we are not getting any younger - what are we waiting for? So, I calmly told him at the end of January that I was going to decide on a ring by the end of the week and then it would be up to him. I found the one I wanted a few days later and we went together to put down the deposit and get the paperwork completed to have it sent off and re-sized. Sixteen days later, it came back and he proposed to me on the spur of the moment in a restaurant parking lot. I couldn't be happier. We are getting hitched in August and I've added the heap of wedding preparation to-do lists to my never-ending pile of to-do's. Busy, busy girl. We also decided to treat ourselves to a tropical honeymoon after the wedding. I think we each deserve it. I feel as if I am constantly being bathed in the warmth of a beam of sunlight when I close my eyes and count my blessings. Things aren't perfect, but this is definitely bliss :-) I've come a long way, baby, one step at a time...!
