When I first showed Kayla my ring, her response was, "You got married!?"
..I assured her she hadn't missed anything, but that the ring meant we were going to be married.. :)
Then I came home to this sweet note...
(changed the picture..... this one's still blurry, but it shows the sparkle a little better :)
hope you don't mind me basking in this moment some more here in blog-land!!
took this for steph who I finally got to skype with and tell this morning!! (the camera-phone-picture doesn't do it justice, but it's still nice to be able to share...)
thoroughly enjoying these moments!!! ♥
What a day!!!
...I never knew the first day after getting engaged could/would be so exciting!!
Not only did we get to go kayaking with our good friends Angela & Justin, we got to start calling and emailing friends and family about our engagement!!!
(somehow in all my anticipation I never imagined this part being soo enjoyable!!)
sidenote: kayaking was also on my 29 before thirty list... (#6) ...woohoo!! :) ...I may have several left undone, but I'm soo glad to get to check this one off... maybe even to make it a regular!!

Celia held a 2 & 1/2 hour line Tuesday night at Barnes!!
She intentionally took her time and was very personable with everyone! ...very nice!
her new book: You Can't Drink All Day If You Don't Start in the Morning... :)
been enjoying some C.S. Lewis lately...
(in my favorite rocking chair outside of Barnes)
I thoroughly enjoyed The Great Divorce, an imaginary but profound allegory of Heaven & Hell and everything in between....
So now I'm onto A Grief Observed... basically Lewis' journaling after his wife died; a little heavy, but really quite wonderful!

...my beloved "clicker" (and house keys)... slid down the sewer grate today..
thankfully I have a spare set of house keys, but I thought that was going to be it for my spoiled days of remote lock/unlocking!
However Mr. Joe came through somehow and rescued them!! ...yay!
.......noteworthy I thought ;)
starting the fast with church.. (27 days ..9/7 - 10/3)
..praying for lots of things, including wisdom in choosing a 'new' building for the Vineyard.... (everybody's choosing for themselves what kind of fast is right for them)..
a form of Daniel's diet, I'm doing fruits, veggies, rice, nuts/seeds, water, & herbal tea (no, I didn't see coffee on that list either.. by far the greatest sacrifice for me..)
..just wanted to document the occasion.. I'll keep most updates in my journal, but maybe a few will leak over to publicity.. I guess we'll see.. ♥

these pink-wearing cuties were only 2nd graders when I had them in my class.... now they're big 4th graders... my, my, time does fly!
love the light in their eyes! ...love that they have hope and a future to look forward to!! ♥
..these cuties and their mom (from the cover of the Charleston Magazine) were walking through B&N today.. glad they stopped to talk.. and let me take their picture! :)
They live in McClellenville.. Karen, their mom, was widowed about two years ago and basically designed the house they live in.. the full article is excellent... what a story..
