Proposals, Weddings, and More...

Life doesn't always make sense when we are in the midst of it, but later on when we are able to look back, it makes perfect sense. At times, my life hasn't taken the course I expected it to, but now I know why!! Barry asked me to marry him! He is truly the man I prayed for God to send me. I've never believed there was just one person for everyone. But, I have always believed that God would lead me to a man I prayed about and asked Him for. He did! Barry has so many amazing qualities. I wanted to marry someone who was a christian that would be a spriritual leader for our family and Barry is that for sure. I truly wanted to find someone who I could trust and would never betray me. I know how important that is to him as well. Barry makes me laugh...sometimes at things he says, sometimes at the way he says them. He is kind and thoughtful and quite the romantic. He loves his family...and mine....and he wants to have a family of his own...I know he will be a wonderful father. Most of all I prayed for a man who would be my friend....who I would just enjoy hanging out with and he is definitely that man!
During his proposal, Barry said a lot of things, but one that really sticks out is the fact that he wants to keep God at the center of our relationship and that he knows that if He is, then we can make it through anything. Even though he knows we will have tough times, he knows we can make it if we trust each other and God. I couldn't agree more!

We've decided on a date for the beginning of our life together...December 31st. It might sound a bit cliche, but it has some special meaning for us. We had been talking for a while and that was the day we realized we liked eachother and wanted to spend some time getting to know one another better. We spent the entire day talking. :) We don't have many details yet, but we hope to make some decisions soon. We know it will be small and very meaningful to both of us.

Here's a picutre from a couple weekends ago. We went to his parent's house for his mom's birthday. What a fun day!
