A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world.
~ Leo Buscaglia
Mark this date on your calendar. By the time you read this post we will already be married. We are flying to Las Vegas with our families and are getting married. We have lots of work to do getting ready to move so our honeymoon will only be a couple of days. I know some have expressed interest in where we have decided to go. All of the family is staying in Las Vegas until the 18th and then we will go back home to finish getting ready for the move.
We can plan a real honeymoon maybe for our first anniversary when things will be less hectic and hurried. As for me, I’ve been getting ready for my new life. I’ve been reading and researching on being a great husband and friend. Anyone interested there is a great article I read. Married or not, this is just good advice on How A Man Should Treat His Wife. In another article by the same author, Asahd2 talks about Keeping Romance Alive. Great information for anyone thinking about marriage. I also read The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work.
I’m still doing some research and preparing myself for my new life. I want to continue to be the best for April. The best friend, the best husband and now the best lover she could ever have or want.
Don’t forget, December 14, next year – our anniversary!
If you read my About page you know I live in Washington and have for all of my life. Well. April received a job offer in August for a company in Indianapolis and she flat out turned it down. They have since approached her again and this time she was willing to consider the idea. She’s lived in Chicago for a while and in San Diego and wasn’t too anxious to move again. She does have friends in Chicago and we both have friends in Indy, so…
We have both been traveling lately and have been visiting Indiana on and off for a month now (click here for more info). She has decided to take the job and I’m moving with her. I also decided to ask April for her hand in marriage. She responded in the affirmative! No date set yet. For my family the news is bittersweet. On the one hand they are gaining a daughter and on the other hand, no sooner than we are married we are moving away. I’ll miss my family but now we can start our own!
For our entire relationship we have been celibate. You can now see why I’m so eager to get married! I love her enough to have waited for her, but now I can’t wait to share the same house, the same bed!
Indiana, here we come. It just occurred to me that I will finally be in a state with a decent football team. Go Colts!
Big life changes. Marriage and moving. All will be revealed at a later date. I have enough scheduled posts to hopefully keep you reading and visiting. I will be traveling back and forth for the next two months. She starts her job in January and we want to get married before then. Stay tuned for more. All will be revealed at a later date…
