you can never have too much sky

You all see that cloud, that fat one there? Darius said, See that? Where? That one next to the one that look like popcorn. That one there. See that. That's God, Darius said. God? somebody little asked. God, he said, and made it simple. -Cisneros

Life Update #2: the boyfriend

…is now my fiance! I could not be happier! I could not have envisioned a better match for myself. If I’d had the option to whip up “the perfect man” from scratch, I’d have messed it up. Timothy was dropped into my universe by a force beyond me. When we met 6 years ago, I never ever would have guessed that we’d end up together. It is nice to be here now, to be able to look back on my life and see the loops and turns that lead me to him. It finally feels so right.

On Sunday, April 22nd, my 26th birthday, Earth Day, our 3 year & 3 month anniversary, and the greatest day of the year as far as I’m concerned, Timothy proposed to me. We woke up and ate breakfast: biscuits, jelly, sausage and eggs. Then, we filled up our water bottles and hopped on our bikes to ride to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.

There are few things I love more than a bike ride in a beautiful park with him. After biking to the gardens, walking about halfway through the park, and grabbing a yummy snack at MetroFresh, we stopped to rest in the Japanese Garden. We sat on a bench under an awning overlooking the garden, and when we were alone he said, “I want to give you your birthday present.” I squirmed a little and probably turned red because I am awkward like that, and by the time he got on his knee, I was squeezing my fists to hold all the happy inside. He took the ring out of the zippered pocket of his green track jacket, and said “Will you marry me?” Of course, he knew I’d say yes. And I did.
