Two Weeks. Happiest Ever.

My blog has long been a strange collection of adventures. For several years now I've shared silly, sarcastic, and random posts with a smattering of editorials about things that bother me. My blog has been largely devoid of the seriousness and sentimentality that I am feeling right now, because frankly, I didn't have a whole lot to be sentimental about, and I'm not one to go public with my more serious moments.

It has been two weeks since Lorraine and I were engaged, and we've sort of been run over by the logistics train that is wedding preparation. More she than I, admittedly, but I feel her pain, anyway. I feel compelled however to publicly, or at least semi-publicly declare that I am supremely happy. Large segments of my life path have been shrouded in the confusion and darkness that come with a serious lack of much-needed perspective. From this relationship I have gained clarity that I never dreamed possible, and what seemed to be an unexplainable quagmire is now revealed to be a carefully formed path. One that I wouldn't change now for the world, as it has led me to who I am, and who I'm with today.

Lorraine is beautiful, intelligent, loving, and strong. She loves me for who I am, not in spite of it, something I had given up hoping for. I couldn't ask for a more supportive and loyal friend. I am so blessed to have her in my life. So yeah... she's pretty cool.

I am very happy. Even though I just got a phone call from the Wells Fargo fraud department. Somebody spent 50 dollars on Itunes using my credit card, and I have never been happier... okay... I was happier yesterday.
