I think I've received about 800 gazillion texts, facebook messages/comments and voicemails since yesterday. I have definitely felt the love. I apologize that I have not gotten back to anyone! Tomorrow morning, I will be tackling that.
But for now, here is the bling. I love it. This is actually ring 1 of 2, as crazy as that is. The ring I picked out is en route but this is Sean's great grandma's ring. So pretty and we love! Yes?!
Dating Sean has been the easiest thing I've ever done in my life. I can't describe it. I think I pictured getting engaged to be this huge occasion but really what I feel is peace, safety and happiness. Last night I thought to myself, "that was easy" (referring to getting engaged, of course) and then had to laugh because I reflected on the dozens of boys I dated that made things so difficult on me and thought back to the times that I never thought this day would ever come. Ever. That's probably why it was so impossible for me to imagine ever getting married. With Sean it was different though. I never had to cry myself to sleep because he ditched me or had to wonder if he liked me or if he would rather be with his friends than me. I never had to wonder if he was just going to string me along. I never had to wonder if he was going to dump me over a text or if he was going to not call me for 2 days. I was always number 1. He didn't tell me, he showed me. I feel quite underserving.
He is kind, he is patient, he is selfless and he is good to the core.
Oh, and I'm allowed to be obnoxious about this stuff. I've waited a long time for this and I get to do whatever the heck I want now.
