You Only Live Once, This Is How I'm Doing It!

Girl Version

I can’t stop smiling…Last night Joel took me into the city. We took the train up and then went out to dinner and had the best meal I’ve had in a long time, mmmm. From there we walked down Michigan Ave and over to Navy Pier where we walked around and saw the Winter Wonder Fest.

After that we went into the theatre and saw Much Ado About Nothing.

The ring and the theater are beautiful.

We got great box seats on the third level and sat back to enjoy the show. The first half of the production was very funny and excellently done and then came the intermission. Everyone around us filtered out and we were left alone. That’s when he told me to close my eyes and when he said I could open them again…

Of course I said yes…in about five different ways as a matter of fact, hehe. I was absolutely blown away by how beautiful the ring was and what a perfect moment it was…it was just perfect. I spent most of the second half of the show distracted by how gorgeous my ring is. I’ve never seen a ring that sparkled so much and it looks perfect on my hand. It was just like a dream, Joel couldn’t have picked a better moment. *happy sigh*

So yeah, I’m so happy right now I sparkle just about as much as my ring does. God couldn’t have blessed me with a more perfect guy and I’m so excited about our future together *big smile*


…and to all a good night!

  6. Oh Abigail, i am writing this with tears in my eyes.
    I remember the night you came running down the stairs and told us the 2 of you were a couple and how excited you were and happy. And although i’ve seen from nearby that this relationship could only lead to marriage and nothing else, i feel absolutely stupid coz i feel like you’re my own little girl getting married and all grown up.
    It’s weird isn’t it? I wish you and Joel all the love in the world. Kisses from all of us.
    Your hostmom

    Congrats!!!!! We are so excited for you and Joel. May the Lord richly bless you as you begin your new life together. Keep Him at the center of your relationship at ALL times. If your southern California dream comes true, maybe we will be able to see you once in a while when we travel thru LA to Bakersfield up north.
