So, I hinted that there was a lot to update on. I won’t be able to do detail by detail but here is the short story of it all.
Last fall, upon reaching this place of acceptance of Beauty, I met a man.
I felt beautiful and confident enough to allow myself to be interested in this man.
I got a friend involved, who is known to be good at matchmaking things, and lo and behold, he happened to be BFF’s with said man.
Said man, apparently was interested in me and our mutual friend had the easiest matchmaking job of all. All he had to do was encourage us to be brave.
Brave we were.
Lunch dates, and Sundays after church began to be spent together. Then Friday nights were added in. Before I knew it, I had my first ever BOYFRIEND! Can I just say, BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!
Not long after that, I had my FIRST kiss.
and soon…I had fallen in love.
I fell for a man who could care less if I lose another pound. He finds me beautiful, and I am in a place in my life to believe him. Despite this, he supports me 100% in my goals and works hard to help me.
And for the really big news, if you can’t infer from the title, yes…we have decided to be married. Soon.
So, I am in rapid wedding planning phase, since our date is August 31, 2013, all while continuing to work my plan and learn how to let someone new into what it means to be losing a whole couple of people. Oh the vulnerability of it all.
Dating, getting to know someone special, falling in love, dieting, exercising, meal planning, plus normal family and work…well can ya see why I haven’t been around the blog much lately? or Facebook for that matter?
So friends, are you ready?
Meet Josiah. The man I have chosen to marry. The one my heart loves.
