- Wedding: September 2011
The last you heard before the holidays I had ended things with Mr. Brady. There was some drama with the “baby’s momma” and I freaked out and just didn’t think I could be married to someone with that type of “baggage.” However, he refused to let me go. He surprised me in Vegas on Xmas day and we did a lot of talking, had some great fun and I literally realized he was not to blame for a lot of the things that happened before Xmas. However, I didn’t want to let Vegas and his surprise blind me. I wanted to get back into our relationship with my eyes wide open, if I were to get back in. I asked for a break until NYE. We made plans to meet in Sac for NYE and decide on our future. I did a lot of soul searching. Cried a lot. Prayer. It works wonders. I prayed a lot. And God lead me to the path he wanted me to take. That path was to Mr. Brady. We met in Sac on NYE and that night back at my place, he asked me to give “us” a shot again and to be his wife. IT was not anything like I expected or what I thought I would want. But… it was perfect. It was simple. It was nothing fancy. It was so not what I thought he or I would do. We tend to go all out on things. Such a simple and laid back proposal just didn’t seem like us. Well… I guess God has different plans for us. I’ve been basking in the glow of being engaged and cannot wait to share my journey with all of you. Sorry for the delay update, but work is keeping me busy and my praying has got me thinking of leaving my current position and starting my own business. One step at a time though. I’ll get some pictures taken of the ring soon and upload them for all of your eyes. The ring is a simple setting with a pink sapphire stone. Not what I thought I’d get, but well within his budget and comes from the heart and I absolutely love it. Congrats to all the waiting bees now engaged over the holidays. I’ll likely update my blog (www.becomingthebradybunch.blogspot.com) more than I’ll be on weddingbee (SUPER SAD FACE). Mainly because of my busy work life right now and the blog is for both myself and Mr. Brady to use for wedding planning, preparing for marriage and blending our families together. So, that’s the short version of my holiday season of lows and highs.
