A Bright New Future

Life is a beautiful thing where anything can happen. It is often through change that our lives become more fulfilling. For when things stay the same they become stagnant and dull. Now I'm not saying our lives were dull and that we needed change, it's just that for us it was time to take the next step. Of course we could have done it sooner or maybe even at a later date but the timing was right for us to get engaged now. Yes, you heard me right, we are engaged. I proposed to my one and only, my muse, my inspiration. We have always talked about getting married and knew in our hearts that we would always be together. So it was only natural for us to make our commitment known to others as well. We both just finished a year at Sheridan College in Ontario, Canada in the field of art and it just seemed right to continue with our journey through life together by binding our love for each other.

We are so over joyed at being able to call each other fiance and fiancee. Did you know there are different meanings for fiance and fiancee, not just different ways to spell it, I didn't. I found out that it is fiance for the man and fiancee for the woman. So if my fiancee were to refer to me in writing she would use fiance, like I just did for her in the beginning of this sentence. By the way, I have no clue how to add that little thingy above the letter "e". 

We had the most beautiful day for the proposal. I guess God was blessing us that day. We went to the Royal Botanical Gardens in Ontario, Canada. If you ever get the chance to go there, please do, it is just beautiful. At the time we went it was nearing the end of summer so I'm sure at the peak of season it is even more beautiful. Also, make sure to bring your camera for there will be plenty of moments that you will want to capture for your albums. In fact we didn't get to see all that there is to see so make sure to leave plenty early so that you don't miss out.

It took a while for us to find the right place, but with a little help from God we found the perfect site for our proposal. There is more than one garden to see and I believe we only had enough time to see two of them. The one we proposed at was called the Laking Garden and we had it all to ourselves. You are probably wondering how can that be when there must be numerous people that go there every day. Well as luck would have it we like to walk and it was a rather long walk to get to this particular garden. At that time of the day the shuttle buses stopped running to other parks and only the adventurous or young are willing to walk that far. I guess we were the only ones with enough stamina that day. I like to think it was destiny, God had plans for us this day. See we wanted to propose and take photos of our special day. It would have been kind of awkward to have people looking at us and walking into our shots. So it was perfect that we were all alone with as much time as we needed to get all of our shots done. I thank the Lord for that wonderful day because now we have the most beautiful photos we could ever hope for to remember our special day.

Now on to the next step, marriage. We haven't set a date for the big day, just one step at a time. We don't know the exact day, but it won't be too far off. May the Lord bless you like he did for us, making all your dreams come true. Take care and God Bless.

  1. The Lord said,"It is not good that I should leave man alone.I shall create a help mate for him." And so God did not take a part from the man's head to rule over her, nor a part from his feet to dominate her, but he took a part from near his heart so that he would love her always.And he brought her to the man. And the man said,"This is bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh I shall call her women." And man shall leave his father and his mother and cleave unto his wife (and Betty adds: "to his wife's family" ^.^)

    We thank the Lord for bringing YOU into our daughter Rebecca's life! You are NOW apart of this crazy wacky totally LOVEABLE clan of a family!!!!!YOU fit in perfectly >.< hehe!
