The BIGGEST news....

You may recall this statement "New fish opportunity tomorrow...we'll see how it goes!"... Made by me in my last post...about 3 1/2 weeks ago...

So, "the fish" was named Jason. We had a wonderful weekend on that first weekend. And every weekend since then. I'm thrilled to say that I've met that person that I never thought I'd find. The one who is sweet, kind, loving, supportive, a great communicator, makes me laugh... I could go on, but I've been testing too many people's gag reflexes these days, so maybe I'll stop there.

Jason is everything I've been looking for and wasn't sure I would ever find. He's also madly in love with ME! Finding all of those things, then realizing that the feelings are completely mutual...well, it's just AWESOME!

He thinks so too....which is why, on Friday night, he asked me to Marry Him! And I said yes, of course. So here are a couple of pictures for you...

My ring is a pearl, with a small diamond on either side and a twining white gold band twisting away from the pearl.


This was the "scene of the crime".... It's Lake Ella park in Tallahassee. Friday night he brought me out to the gazebo, we sat down facing the rosebushes and lake, and he proposed. This was taken on Sunday when we went back to get a couple of daytime pictures.


And here's a close-up of those roses...

And I had to read on your blog first????

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you. But you really gotta tell your friends before you post things on the internet! LOL

Holy shit! That's awesome! Congratulations to you both. I'm glad I got to meet him. He stood up to the Lorena-and-Sharon 'How much jabbing can he take' test very well!

Congratulations Jody!! If you can make it some Tuesday, I'd love to see the ring in person and hear the whole story. :)

WHAT!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

OH-MY-GOSH! That's amazing, and incredible, and FAST and did I say I totally get what you mean because that's how fast it was with Matt and me. You know, I truly believe that, the older we get, the easier it is to "weed through the crap" of people's personalities to find "the one." None of that "Oh, what if he doesn't like me?" stuff, ya know? When you know, you know. It's as easy as that!

So, with that said, may I offer my congratulations and best wishes to you and Jason. I could tell that you "clicked" when I saw you in Celebration, and I couldn't be happier. Really!

When's the wedding? Do you need a vocalist? If so, I would love to offer my voice to your special day. No pressure, of course. Maybe you'll run off to Vegas for all I know.

How awesome! xoxo
