Into The Darkness.....

It seems to me at the very moment I turn my clock back an hour(who am I kidding iphone did it for me)that some kind of internal shift occurs and I'm immediately thrown into a three month long drive through the doldrums. #carefulMilo #crankyginger

It's not a bad mood's more of a heaviness on my thoughts. Everything seems to take just a tad more effort in the dark cold months of old man Winter's rule. I feel like I'm operating on the last 9% of battery life and at any moment I might just lay my head down and hibernate until Spring arrives and showers me in light and glitter again.

This evening as I sit in my beautiful home and contemplate all the tasks on my 'to do' list...I am aware of the wind licking at my window and the rain slowly saturating the fallen leaves outside. Tomorrow morning the air will be weighted in moisture and the scent of freshly showered earth. It will be beautiful and slowing to me. My pace will gradually lessen as we get deeper into the season. I will find ways to streamline my time spent out of doors and spend as much time as possible indoors where my Summer born soul can stay dry, warm and content.

Bless Cason's heart :) I darn near sweat that man outta the house when it drops below 50 degrees outside. Good thing he loves me, eh? - The GFG

Dreams Do Come True....

On a lazy fall Sunday afternoon while sitting on our 'Hey Arnold!' Stoop and watching the ninja squirrels chase each other from branch to branch my PC and I were doing what we normally do- sippin' on some coffee and just enjoying each other. He got up and walked around to the back yard. I figured he was just stretching his legs a bit. A few moments later while the sun warmed up and began to take the chill off the cement stoop he came back and knelt down in front of me. He looked up at me with his mesmerizing green eyes and asked me to be his wife!

First I cried, second I said YES, and then I threw my arms around him and squeeled with excitement. I get to spend all of my days with Cason! I get to be his forever date! This was really happening to me! I dang near floated off in a bubble y'all :) He tied a blade of grass around my ring finger which I wore all day and then laminated to keep forEVER. (I later learned that he is having a one of a kind ring made for me in Ireland and I should have it on my finger by Thanksgiving).

I have dreamed of a love like he and I have since I was 11 years old and first read 'Wuthering Heights'. Cathy and Heathcliff had a tragic story but their love for one another knew no boundaries and they shared a connection that other people just didn't comprehend. It was amazing! I knew then that I wanted to love a man that fiercely someday without restraint, fear or boundaries. I love my Cason this fiancé :) I really LOVE the sound of that. We've set a date for October 5th, 2013 and will be wed in an Irish ceremony under the magnolia trees of Covington Square. And ya know what? It's going to be perfect :)- The GFG
