I GOT ENGAGED!!!

I'm so surprised and SO happy! Never would I have thought that today would not only be a great day with family and friends, eating all the wonderful foods I love for the first time in a VERY long time thanks to our JUDDD, but that the love of my life would ask me to marry him!

Here is a picture of the ring. It doesn't do it justice, but it's a beautiful round diamond surrounded by yellow champagne diamonds with chocolate diamonds down the side and then it has champagne and chocolate diamonds on the flat side of the band! It's just amazing and EVERYTHING I would have wanted in a ring, and more. He REALLY listened when I told him the kind of ring I would want if I ever got engaged!!

Did I see you post someplace else, quite some time ago, that you were actually married to this same man once before? Or am I completely mixed up?

NOPE, you got it right! We were married for 23 years, but totally disconnected when we had kids, never having time for ourselves, or MAKING time for us to continue to date and be a "couple". We were Mom and Dad, so busy and worried that our kids would not have crazy childhoods like we did, we forgot about our marriage, and it fell apart when the kids grew up and moved on. I moved out, we got divorced, and we went our separate ways, but always would call each other when we needed something or had a problem and wanted that one person that "knew" who we were and could help us through the problem. About 2 1/2 years ago there was a family issue that required us to be together quite a bit and little by little we both started to talk, I mean REALLY talk, and we BOTH realized the mistakes we had made and decided to "date". We always use to have fun together before the family came along; dancing, camping, cooking, traveling and it all just picked up again where it left off from before when we started our family. I fell in love all over again!! This man is and always has been a "perfect fit" for me, I just never realized it until I was on my own and I finally "grew up"!! And he has told me time and again that I have always been his "only true love" and that the time we spent apart made him realize how much he didn't do, how he had never listened to what I needed or wanted, totally took me for granted and regretted every minute of what he had done after we divorced.

It's one of those love stories that is only written about or seen in the movies, but we are living that love story now every single day! A more amazing, caring, loving man can not be found and a more "perfect fit" does not exist anywhere in the world for me! Sure, there were some of the same issues from when we were married, but we talked them through, figured out how we BOTH were contributing to the problem and found a solution that would get rid of the "trigger" that caused these same problems to come up again. We "work" at us now, and it's working SO amazingly well!!

I'm so happy and just KNOW this will have the perfect ending it should have had the first time!! As a matter of fact when he asked me to marry him in front of our kids, family and friends tonight at the dinner table, he said it like this: "Will you marry me again, and this time we will do it the right way!" How could I NOT say YES, YES, YES!!
