I'm getting married!! (and this is no April Fool's joke!!)

I'm sooooo excited to finally announce this:

I'm getting married! Bobby proposed to me yesterday at the Forks and I of course said YES!

So here's the details...

Wednesday started off as a pretty yucky, cloudy/rainy day but ended up turning into an absolutely fantastic sunny day! (I head it was about +17 and we actually both ended up getting sunburnt faces!) We headed off to the Forks around lunch time, and walked around for a little while. Then we found a nice little spot for a picnic, feasted on heart shaped cheese and pickle sandwiches and dill pickle chips, watching the geese and enjoyed the sunshine.

Then, Bobby said he had something for me... he pulled out a little homemade story that he wrote about a "little girl and a little boy" (us) and read it to me. After he finished, he said he had something else for me... he pulled out a little white box, got down on one knee, said a lot of sweet words about me, and asked me to marry him! I started crying as soon as he said my name! :P

I absolutely love my ring! My poor Bobby had little to work with in the surprise department as far as planning a proposal, but he did an amazing job of making it special and romantic! and... he chose the ring all by himself! (we had never looked at rings together)

At this point, we haven't set an official date, but we are aiming for this summer! Bobby will go back to Japan by himself in mid April but will come back to the States in June. In the mean time, I get to start planning!

I'm so excited and couldn't be happier. Only God could have brought us together the way He did! I am beyond blessed to have Bobby Baden as my fiance and I'm really excited to see how God will use us as we serve Him together. So much more could be said.... but I'm speachless! :)
Thank you Jesus for the wonderful life you've given me! :)
