i didn't grow up with brothers or around an extraordinary amount of boys, but my friend erin's two make me want to have a whole passel of my own. who knew a good game of david and goliath (for the record, i was a philistine) could be so much fun?

(it's personal) begin at the beginning.

i wouldn't've thought that this kind, friendly man i met nearly 5 years ago (when i first moved to portland) would be "the one."

we were ships passing in the night for most of that time, and then in a hilarious turn of events we were set up (sorta :)) this fall. if you see me in person ask me the story, i love to tell it. a good friend said it so well: "it's a great testimony to God's creativity and timing." seriously. it was nothing either of us could've put together.

fast forward to march 25th, the day that j asked me to be his wife. another great story. the short version: he loves me so well. i have been and continue to be wowed.

sometimes great things happen when you least expect them. :)
