I'm engaged!

So yes, pretty sure you all want to know how it happened and stuff... Not really any big stories to tell though. In fact, don't think we can even pin it down to a date really coz it's been in the cards even before he asked me. We were waiting until we'd spoken to my parents before it became official, and now it's once I've actually got the ring on my finger.

We spent a good few hours, over the course of a few days deciding on a ring, and have eventually found the perfect one! I don't have my own picture of it yet, coz it's still being sized, but here's a link for those of you who want to see what it looks like :)

The wedding will take place in South Africa, sometime around May next year. Yes, I'm still coming home for about a month before Greece.
Jason's hopefully going to come to SA either in August this year, or December, so at least you can meet him before the actual wedding!

The beginning

Just a quick update on what's up with me.

I've been to Chicago, Atlanta, New York, Florida and Canada. All them not staying longer than a week. Until now...I am back in Florida again and starting my job on Tuesday.

Not looking forward to the 6am wake up calls, and a little bit nervous about fitting in with the family. I hate awkwardness. They seem really nice though, so we'll see :)

To My Future

A poem I wrote early February '07...coincidentally, just a few days before I met my husband!

I hope you’re being good. I hope you think of me, often.
I hope you pray for me, as I do for you.
I hope, when you get here, you recognize me straight away,
That your heart starts beating faster and the pursuit begins.
That I consume almost every thought you have, and I make you feel alive.
That I make you laugh, and show you more of the One you love.
That inspire you and make you weak at the knees.
That I bring out that protective instinct, you’ve never known so strong.
I hope that you can not rest until you make me yours.
I know you'll like kids, or this poem is not for you.
The same music would be nice too.
If you like sport, please understand when I pull faces.
I’ll watch coz you do, but more for the cuddles.
I want you love Him, even more than me.
I want you to love the church as much as I do.
To pray before you eat, and when you can’t find your car keys.
I’m happy for you to drive, although you don’t mind if I do.
I’ll bake you cookies, and you’ll make me tea.
Would you hold my hand, and kiss me gently?
You’ll tell me I’m beautiful, and I’ll see in your eyes you mean it.
But, wait for me, I’m not ready yet.
There’s too much to do…
