Where Heather has some exciting news.  


I'M ENGAGED!!!!

Thomas proposed and we're getting married and it's so exciting and feels so right. God is so awesome and we're so blessed to be where we are.

While we're so happy, there's a lot of planning to happen, and there's already been enough conflict. With all that there is to do, including graduating university and finding jobs, we're planning on May 2013. It should make for a nice spring wedding.

I'm sorry I've neglected my journal here. I'm hoping to resurrect my blogging, and perhaps even start a "proper" blog separate from Livejournal. With my degree in English, I'm hoping to go into publishing and editing, and perhaps something with writing, so this could be good practice for a potential career. Part of me loves the idea of becoming a writer while the practical side of me shrinks from the discipline that it might require. I question if I have the passion and drive for it, but I would like to at least keep writing as a hobby.

Needless to say, 2012 is looking to be an exciting year!

OH MY GOODNESS. Heather!!!! I guess it's a testament to how long we've been LJ friends, but this is both natural and completely shocking to me/makes me feel old a bit (I want to get married before 25!!! but I only turned 21 a month ago haha), but wow. CONGRATULATIONS!! I'd love it if you could ever catch up on LJ or write a proper blog outside of LJ, and I'd also love to hear the details about how you guys got together, how everything happened, etc. One of my most recent procrastination tactics has been reading wedding blogs, because I love weddings, and it does seem like there's a huge amount of work. But that's crazy and wonderful, you guys will be getting married when I graduate college (cue another mindblowing thought, at least for me haha :p)!

:OOO Mind is totally blown. But so happy for you. Lots and lots of love, and God bless you with all the planning ahead! ♥

CONGRAAAAATS! I'm so excited and pleased for you two. :D

By the way, I'm also pleased that you want to blog more, be it here or on another platform, and I think it's great that you're looking into doing something writing-related professionally. Do let us know if you open a new blog elsewhere, 'cause I'd love to subscribe to your posts there!
