Yesterday was an exciting day. I woke up like any other day, had breakfast and checked my e-mail. I read through my GoogleReader subscriptions and noticed a post on my cousin’s blog, Top Ten Blogs You Need to Visit. I was excited to see that I had made the list. Here’s Jennifer’s write up:
A list of top blogs wouldn’t be complete without another member of my family! Jessica is my cousin, and I am so grateful for social networking to keep in touch with her. This Georgia gal can keep in touch with her Jersey girl via Facebook and our blogs. Jessica’s blog is completely different than the others I have mentioned–Jessica devotes her blog to recipes, fashion, and decor for the home. Her latest blog post is a review of a candle that has a ring inside of it–who knew? (Maybe everyone, but I didn’t, so I’m thankful for her being in-the-know) What makes Jessica’s blog great is her wit–she’s a Martha Stewart with a Jersey girl attitude!
Thank you again, Jennifer, for giving me a spot on your list! JenniferVDavis.com is my cousin’s blog. She often offers a dose of humor and lessons of love and growth in dealing with being a mother of three young children. She also often writes about religion and her relationship with God. As Jennifer wrote about my blog, her blog is a nice way to keep in touch with her life. Blogging runs in the family!
In very exciting news, I am a newly engaged woman!!! Here’s the engagement story: Mike had a sore back so he went to bed. I went to make sure he was okay and laid down beside him to keep him company. He had his arm around me while I was lying on my back. He moved away for a minute and when he turned back, he had put the ring box on my stomach. Like any normal girl would do, I freaked out! So I, of course, took the ring and he put it on me. That’s it! I know he had mentioned something about a “symbol” but I was honestly too excited and giving him kisses to remember his exact words (isn’t that horrible?). Mike did tell me that he chose last night because 1/11 was a date he could remember for years to come. I’m officially going to marry my best friend and best love. I couldn’t be happier! And I must add that he did well with the ring. It’s everything I could ever want and more!
We haven’t planned out any details yet because it just happened. I’m just soaking up the moment right now and trying to get used to having a ring on my finger. I never really wore rings before, but I think I can get used to this. 😉
