Yes, we are now engaged :-)
It's been a long process...one that wasn't always fun and easy, in fact, the last few months have admittedly been some of the most difficult times of me and Richie's life. But we did so much growing and learning through it all, and though I often wished that the pre-courtship process didn't have to be so hard and at times painful, it was good, it was worth it, and the Lord showed His love and faithfulness to us every step of the way. I am still in awe of the way God had this all planned before the world even came to be, and how every event in history has been perfectly orchestrated and planned out. I can't believe He chose to bless me with this incredible man...the man that I dreamed about and prayed for since I was 5 years old. All the praise and glory belongs to Him, for His ways are so much higher than ours!
Daddy goofing off ;-)
