engaged. as in, getting married.


The day was April 13th, 2011.

The weather was sublime.

He asked. And I said, "yes!"

I received a stunning sapphire ring (I wanted something different from diamond. And I love my ring).

We spent a couple blissful hours enjoying nature, each other's company and dinner. Then we slowly began telling people, beginning with those closest and most important to us.

Together we are trying to savor these fleeting, happy moments. We haven't set a date or dealt with the "details" of everything yet. We'll start that soon enough. Tonight we're going to celebrate by dinner out at Thai 9 and spending some time thinking, praying and dreaming.

I am working to have the emphasis to be on the MARRIAGE, not the wedding. The most amazing wedding in the world means nothing if the marriage is weak. We are in desperate need of Christ as the center of our relationship now and always.

thank you for celebrating with us!

  1. Aaahhh!!! Callie, there are not words for how happy I am for the two of you right now! I was trying to tell Jesse how excited I was, but all I could do was squeal and clap! :oP

    I can't stop loving what a beautiful story you two are sharing, knowing how much thought and prayer went into it even before you knew each other! I love you, my friend!

  2. Congrats!! I'm really happy for you. Who'd have thought after all these years, we'd be this old? By the way, is that a You've Got Mail reference in the title?
