Hallelujah

I promise to get back to the writing, but with all that’s going on right now – especially another shooting today – I just need music, love and light. So, here’s Daniel’s video of the launch of the lanterns last night at The Lights Fest. I’ve been watching it over and over in between work hours today when I needed a breather. Remember, I love you.

Here Comes the Rain Again

We had a wonderful time last night celebrating Daniel’s birthday. We met friends at Los Amigos (our favorite go-to place) for dinner. Then it was off to 41st Street Pub and Aircraft Sales (????) for drinks and games, followed by karaoke at Bourbon Street in Crestwood. He said it was the best birthday he’d ever had. That made me very happy to hear!

It’s raining here in the ‘Ham…again. It seems like it’s been raining for a week. But I am not complaining. I LOVE the rain, especially going to sleep to it as I am about to do. We stayed out way too late last night, I trounced all over the BJCC today at another bridal show (too much fun), Daniel is currently on a plane headed to Phoenix for a few days, therefor this gal is going to bed very early. See you tomorrow lovelies!

Love yourself.
Find peace inside.
Share happiness.

Here Comes The Rain Again
By the Eurythmics

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

{Refrain}
So baby talk to me
Like lovers do
Walk with me
Like lovers do
Talk to me
Like lovers do

Here comes the rain again
Raining in my head like a tragedy
Tearing me apart like a new emotion
Oooooh
I want to breathe in the open wind
I want to kiss like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

{Refrain}

So baby talk to me
Like lovers do

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
(Here is comes again, here it comes again)
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

FINALLY! I can tell the world!  Do you know how hard it has been for me to keep quiet about this? I am not known for my patience or keeping my mouth shut when there is big news. I can do it (obviously), but I’m not a fan. 🙂 The “big news” that I hinted at earlier this week is finally public knowledge – Daniel and I are engaged! He asked me last week, I – of course – said yes, and we’ve been quietly telling the family and such until today. There was a method to our madness and I appreciate all of my wonderful gal pals and close friends not getting offended by not being the first to know. It was a very special, sweet proposal without a lot of fanfare (unlike me and what I normally go for, but it was PERFECT in this situation), and we are happy to finally be able to tell everyone. We have so many wonderful friends that have been along for the ride ever since we met that night at Little Savannah so many moons ago. We have made a million more friends on our journey and can’t wait to share the special day with all of you. We haven’t ironed out any details yet, but do keep an eye out for information. I think we’re going to have to do a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the celebration party we want to throw at the end of it all. Or I’m going to go around asking for donations again, but not for the next Bham Dance Walk…for our party! lol. You all are most definitely invited, but it may turn into BYOB because there is no way we can feed and imbibe all the awesome folks of Birmingham that we want to invite. We’ll figure it out, but any and all tips, help, advice is greatly appreciated. And yes, that is my ring. He did a GREAT job! 🙂

In other news: Don’t forget that the Picture Perfect Holiday Giveaway is still open and I’m looking forward to your entry.

Love yourself.
Find peace inside.
Share happiness.
