I’ve been keeping a secret from you: and it’s not that I’m engaged. That’s a more recent development.
A very, very happy one! One that I’ve been holding close for over a year now. Over a year. Some of you know how hard it is to keep a secret for a year when sometimes it feels like your whole life is online–or in print in a book. It was kinda difficult and kinda the most natural thing to hold this secret close to my heart for over 365 days.
You see, over the last year, I’ve not only been releasing love stories into the world…
I’ve been falling in love myself. (No, I haven’t been engaged for a year; I’ve just been in my first relationship!)
With the most amazing man in all of time and space.
And on Sunday, he asked me to be his forever and always.
I. Said. Yes.
I knew I would. Since August 29, 2015, I knew I’d marry this man, my man, the one I’ve been waiting for, the one I didn’t see coming.
So forgive me? For keeping a secret for over a year? For I decided to revel in the story-living for a season until I was ready for the story-telling. Good news: I’m ready to tell the story now, our story, of the here and now, of the last year, and of all the dreams for the years to come.
To make it easy, I’m capturing them all in one place, on this page, a space just for the story I couldn’t have written any better than the Author of Love Himself. I’ll share more soon, promise…In the meantime, rejoice with me.
I’m getting married to my favorite!
