Anblick writing poetry? :shock: And you're not posting any poetry here on the site? Don't let Mlou find out.

Things are going really well, and you could say are getting serious, too. I'm meeting Candice's dad today, and assuming things go well, she's coming cross country with me end of May to meet my family when I go back to be in my brother's wedding. :D

OK, Point A: Hold on to her, bubba, because she is way too cute for you.

Point B: what is with her arms? She looks like she's been trying to give a cat a bath in the toilet ...

Point C: Is that BABY FURNITURE???

Seriously, man ... nice shots ...

Yeah, she has two kids, turning 2 and 3 in the next few weeks. The older one is mildly autistic, too.

As for the arms, yeah, they were scarred pretty bad, but she's ok now.

And heck, don't I know she's way too good looking for me!

So the latest news is that I've ordered a promise ring to give her, and she's definitely going to meet my family end of May! :D

Uhm, yes, so the latest is that as long as the road trip goes well, we're getting MARRIED this summer (prolly July).



Sorry for those of you who want me to post writing challenges, but I'm a little preoccupied :P

The airport is a long way from everything. It's like 10 or more miles away from anything :P

Oh dear, I rattled off a quick opening as soon as I opened the writing topic. I didn't realise it was your fiance's *real* ring. My apologies for such a bleak story!

It's gorgeous! Congratulations!

Thanks. We're getting married on 15 July, though we won't have the formal ceremony until next summer.

Ok now this is surreal...Anby is Happy, and getting married...wow!

Congrats my dear, glad you broke your dark cloud and found your silver lining...maybe then, when the excitement of the wedding settles, we'll see a return to your novel.
