On being Engaged.

I'm sitting at Starbucks, waiting for my shift to begin.The world is buzzing around me,the smell of coffee permeates the air.And in this moment, I am content.
Mike and I have been engaged for exactly 2 months as of yesterday.And what a crazy scary exciting two months its been.It feels like yesterday that we were just a little boy and a little girl,living a mere three miles from each other. I can't believe its been over two years since he first held my hand in that dark theater.
Those early days of butterflies have fled,and like a butterfly,our baby caterpillar of a relationship is slowly blossoming into something more beautiful and terrifying then either of us could have imagined.
This journey that God has led us on has been one of trial and error,growth and pruning and learning. But I've never done something more worthwhile.
Four and a half months to go.
