Exactly one year ago right NOW I was on top of a mountain (Masada) in Israel. Crouching down on one knee, ring in hand. It was the best day ever. Our first day in the last week w/o rain (who knew it rained in Israel?!), and our first day after our bronchitis had started to clear. God said, "Let their be light so this poor fool can propose to his girlfriend".
An entire year has gone by? That's nuts to me. It feels like it was yesterday. Each day in Israel thinking that would be the day I would propose, but the moment never presented itself. Now a year later and we're in the homestretch of our wedding planning process. So much has happened this year that I'm truly thankful for. Our engagement, our pup Ernie, our house, this blog, our family and friends, anyone that reads this blog, etc. etc etc. It's just been an overall great year. So many great blessings. The best part is that we are about to get MARRIED this year, so it's not like things are dwindling down and going to get any less exciting any time soon.
I know this post isn't quite what you all have grown accustomed to on my blog, but I thought it was necessary!
