I am happy. Very happy. Yesterday was the perfect day and I can't wait until S and I can start our life together.
I had been thinking of asking S to marry me for a long time, but was trying to figure out the perfect time to ask her. Well, on Saturday we had talked on the phone and I realized that I wanted to ask her the next day. We were in her house and I told her how much I loved her and how much she has changed my life and that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. I then told her that I wanted her to become my wife. Her response was a perfect "yes". It was the perfect moment and that one word has changed everything. We spent rest of the afternoon talking about our future and the plans we have.
We will have a private ceremony (just the two of us) and exchange rings the first night we move in with each other. I am guessing it will be sometime this summer. Neither of us want a big ceremony and really just want the two of us there. Now the fun begins and we get to start looking for rings.
The last few weeks we have been talking about the 2 hours that are between us and know that we need to do something about that. So......I have started the process of looking for a new job that is close to where she lives. I love my job (99% of the time) and I hate that I have to leave it, but I am in love with S and want to see her every single morning. We are still working out the details as to where exactly we will live. We thought about buying a house out in the country (her house is in town, but to me it feels like the country), but we may wait a few years. I love her house and it feels so warm and welcoming. I would be very happy living there with her.
I am so thankful that I have S in my life. She is so good for me and so good to me. Yesterday after I asked her to marry me she said, "I promise that I will always love you with respect and kindness and you will always be my main priority." How great is this...I get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend.
I guess I should start preparing my cats for the 2 hour car ride they will eventually be going on. They are going to be soooo pissed. But I know in the end they will be happy because there will be so many windows for them sit in and overall it will be a lot more quiet. Plus S spoils them rotten. :)
This really is going to be the best year of my life.
