And now... the planning begins.

They met through pictures.
He with his son, a genuine smile and equally as loving was his sons.
Her picture was a bit coyer, glancing up before being given the chance to smile.

She was scanning, searching for anything that caught her eye.
The title, the picture and then the profile, Oh, he was funny, witty, self-deprecating without being negative.

Saying “Hello” was alright, she would just put it out there.
An hour later, he responded…
She was already asleep.

The anticipation of the morning e-mail, there he was.
Just as funny and curious about her, was she real? Was she like the others?
Yes… she had to be, there would be no reason she wouldn’t be.

They spoke back and forth electronically… then.. they met.

They met each other… finally their kids, the months passed, they met friends and relatives, they got to know one another slowly.

There was building and long exhausting nights before the families finally began to blend.

The kids squabble like siblings and laugh together the same. The parents fall into bed some nights too exhausted to talk and fall asleep with their legs intertwined.

Then one cool winter night the earth passed between the sun and the moon and hid the light. The stars have never been brighter. He’d brought her there to the place they shared their first kiss.

With the look of true love, words that will never leave her mind, he asked her to be his wife.

She said yes….. the new chapter has begun.

(It took me over a week to come up with what I wanted to say to my blogoverse friends. How do I hold a moment as special as this on my blog. I'd written this many months ago and never finished it... here is the revised version)
