so there was a lapse here… some new developments have occupied my time lately including our engagement =) yes i said it. engagement. and it’s been everything i thought it would be and more. but actually more importantly the past 4 months have made me realize more than ever just how important family is. i’m not just gaining an amazing husband but i’m gaining a second mother and father and a new brother and sister. i’m becoming an aunt again. a sister in law. daughter in law. the list goes on & i love it. they say that the strength of a family, like the strength of an army, is in its loyalty to each other. i can fortunately say that i am entering into the most loyal clan i’ve ever encountered. the love and the bond is unbreakable and i am forever grateful for this. we go to great lengths to protect the ones we love.
it’s also made me appreciate our friendships. the true friendships & the people in our lives that are really happy for us and there for us. its amazing how you see true colors in times of great happiness and immense trials. the friends who are there to pick you up & dust you off and the friends who are there to celebrate with you… those are the friends that matter and ours have shifted slightly over the past year but the relationships have become more solid than they ever were. to our bridal party i am amazed by the love and support surrounding us. and to the people who doubted us and who don’t support us, i have this to say… we’re in this forever & i now feel like an eternity isn’t enough time to spend with Brian. he continues to make me happy every single day.
