Officially Engaged!!!

Officially Engaged!!!

 

We are engaged!!! 5 days before we own our new home, Andrew proposed!!! He proposed at the place we first kissed. It was so romantic and lovely! I said yes!
Andrew said what he loved about me was then when we are together, it is like no one else is there, it is just the two of us. I am so glad he said that because I knew it was true too.
He said this was a very special place, but it wasn’t only going to be remembered for our first kiss. This will also be the place where we decided to “do it or not do it” (inside joke). He said that he was learning about love, and that God was working through me to give him a greater understanding of love.
It was so perfect, so romantic. We are so happy and life is so good. I was just telling Andrew earlier today how blessed we are, and that I couldn’t ask for anything more. We have a new home, a new car, great jobs that we are both very happy with. Everything is going well. But I told him, I don’t have any fairy tale notions that life will always be this good. I don’t have any illusions. There’s going to be some tougher times to be sure, and it won’t always be as easy as it is now. With God, all things are possible.
I really love the song Rachel Platten “Stand By You”.
Hands, put your empty hands in mine
And scars, show me all the scars you hide
And hey, if your wings are broken
Please take mine so yours can open too
‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you
Oh, tears make kaleidoscopes in your eyes
And hurt, I know you’re hurting, but so am I
And love, if your wings are broken
Borrow mine so yours can open too
‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you
Even if we’re breaking down, we can find a way to break through
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through hell with you
Love, you’re not alone, ’cause I’m gonna stand by you
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’m gonna stand by you
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through hell with you
Love, you’re not alone, ’cause I’m gonna stand by you
Yeah, you’re all I never knew I needed
And the heart, sometimes it’s unclear why it’s beating
And love, if your wings are broken
We can brave through those emotions too
‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you
Oh, truth, I guess truth is what you believe in
And faith, I think faith is helping to reason
No, no, no, love, if your wings are broken
Borrow mine so yours can open too
‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you
Even if we’re breaking down, we can find a way to break through
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through hell with you
Love, you’re not alone, ’cause I’m gonna stand by you
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’m gonna stand by you
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through hell with you
Love, you’re not alone, ’cause I’m gonna stand by you
I’ll be your eyes when yours can’t shine
I’ll be your arms, I’ll be your steady satellite
And when you can’t rise, well, I’ll cry with you on hands and knees
‘Cause I
(I’m gonna stand by you)
Even if we’re breaking down, we can find a way to break through (come on)
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through hell with you
Love, you’re not alone, ’cause I’m gonna stand by you
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’m gonna stand by you
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through hell with you
Love, you’re not alone, ’cause I’m gonna stand by you
Love, you’re not alone
No, I’m gonna stand by you
(Even if we can’t find heaven, heaven, heaven)
I’m gonna stand by you
