Big News

I have spent the last couple of days in a bit of a blissful bubble. I have been sharing my amazing news slowly with those I needed to tell in private but I’m near bursting to tell the whole world.

My potato book birthday bash was a complete success! Ok that’s not actually the big news, though it was a great party and I want to thank everyone who was there, especially my friends who hosted it.

Tennessee asked me to marry her!!!  I said yes, of course.

The proposal was beautiful and sweet and romantic. One of my friends, who is mostly forgiven, knew about it and recorded the whole thing so there are pictures and proof it really happened. And now there’s a beautiful ring on my finger to remind me it wasn’t a dream.

I am such a romantic at heart and this was exactly what I have always wanted (though I had forgotten it over the years). I love grand romantic gestures and for her to have included my friends and also planned everything around making sure my mom’s needs were considered tells me so much about this beautiful, amazing woman.

I feel seen as I never really have before. I admit to having to fight off the “I don’t deserve this” thoughts.  I can’t help but think I am not worthy of her, but I plan on spending every day trying to be the best version of me because she deserves nothing less.

That best version of me includes being aware that I am worthy of love and of a happily ever after. I am also aware that happily ever afters don’t just happen. They require work, but I am so looking forward to the work ahead.

Though you know what they say–if you love what you’re doing you’ll never work a day in your life.

 Thank you all for being on this journey with me. Be well my friends.

  1. Congratulations Miri! I have been behind in reading,sorry, so I just caught up with you again and I saw your wonderfully happy news! I don’t have the patience to make another year-long cross stitch, but I’ll have to think of something. BTW, I get to Georgia at least a couple times a year,so maybe I’ll get to finally visit with you again. Leanne
