Lucky Girl

Happy Valentine's Day! :)
I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I look at my left hand every day and marvel how proud I am to wear the ring that Dave proposed with.  Proud might sound like an odd word to use about my ring but here's why I use it... Dave knew what was important when choosing my ring.  I look down at it every single time and know that he worked HARD to give me something I will wear for the rest of my life. I make no qualms about the fact that I have high standards (for my life, my love and what I do).  I knew that he was the one, in part, because he knows how to delight me.

(love you, dave!)

I am such a lucky girl. I have a guy who is so incredibly thoughtful. I would tell you that he got me a watch but that doesn't sound thoughtful.  But it is, because there's a story to go with the watch... that's for another time. Card writing is a huge part of my life. I appreciate hand written cards and I make sure I send out hand written letters/cards when warranted.  I knew that Dave was the one, in part once again, because he is an incredible card writer.  He makes me feel so important and cared for.

(thanks dave!)

I feel lucky that I get to marry this guy in a mere 7 months. Let me tell you, I'm not THERE yet. I haven't gotten to the part where I imagine myself walking down the grassy aisle yet.  I've thought through our vows and how true they are for us (which in itself is amazing that we wrote them together), and how much fun I plan to have (wink wink blog loves).  He is so good to me and I can't wait to celebrate in a big fat way.

(and he got me flowers)

Normally, I'm not a romantic.  Normally, I don't say stuff like this. But I think that kindness and thoughtfulness warrants public praise (and this is the most public it gets for me...). I feel truly blessed and honored to start my adult life with this kind-hearted, well meaning, good-card-writing gentleman.
