   Picture Found Here      
The world is too much with us; late and soon,
          Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers:
          Little we see in Nature that is ours;
          We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
          The Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
          The winds that will be howling at all hours,
          And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;
          For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
          It moves us not.--Great God! I'd rather be
          A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn; 
          So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
          Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
          Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
          Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn. 
We often forget about how we as humans are creatures. We
are part of this planet, part of Gaia, a part of Mother Earth.
Persephone returns to her mother Demeter and new life is begining 
appear from the dark cold days of winter. 
The world waits with Demeter for Persephone's return each spring,
when the earth will turn green and warm once more.

Marry Me


So Monday morning I woke up around 11am after having some unpleasant dreams My love and I went upstairs to make food. Kraft Mac&Cheese was the choice and I began to boil a pot of water and get the ingredients out. after realizing that my man had already gotten up and taken a shower an hour before i woke up I took one and made it downstairs before the water even started to bubble. (I'm quick!) I finished making our food and about half way through my bowl the UPS truck pulls up. "Go down stairs." He told me. I did as i was asked and waiting down there confused and continuing to eat my cheesey noodles. After a time and lots of whispers from up in the kitchen he came down stairs. Taking my bowl aside and starting to kiss my I wondered 'what does he want?' i said "What?!" With a ridiculous grin on his lips he asked.

"Yes? That's me...."
"Jennifer, will you marry me?" he asked (with only a bit of dificulty opening the boxed ring.
And then with out delay I replied. We continued kissing until he got the box open with one hand. He stopped and grabbed my hand and placed Nenya (my ring) on my finger.

We kissed more, which was a bit difficult because our smiles were so big it was hard to keep behind our lips when they touched.

I love Michael with all my heart! The spontaneous after delicious Mac&Cheese Proposal, I love it!

As far as "The Date"... We don't really know yet, but next year during the summer or spring is a realistic idea. It would be nice to have it this year, but we want to be financially stable and be able to get a place of our own.

I love my life! I love all that it has given me. I love The boy to whom I am now engaged to. I Celebrate our past, enjoy the present and look forward to our future!
