thesis update (or lack there of)

Well guys and gals I had hoped by this point in the week that I would have grand and glorious progress to report to you about...however life has not ended up that way. I spent several hours going over the thesis template and have even begun to gather my thoughts on various chapters. But that's as far as it goes.
Don't get me wrong, I am anxious over its completion and almost constantly feel the stress stemming from its incompletion.
All of this said, I have factors that have brought me to where I am but I know deep down I am the one responsible.

Continue to be in prayer friends. I need it now as much as ever.

Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been very busy since I got back into town earlier in the week. I will try to get pics up of both the beach and family reunion/stamp trip as soon as I can. Until then please be in prayer that I can finish my thesis in the next 19 days.

Big News!

After five and a half years Aaron popped the question!!

I was (still am) enjoying my beach vacation with Abby and her family when Abby started to get text messages from a source she would not divulge. After a bit of thinking I figured out it must be Aaron although I couldnt quite figure out why.

Now anyone who knows Aaron knows he loves surprises, even showing up when you're not expecting him. So it was not a huge surprise when he showed up at the front door a few hours later.

After a brownie and homemade ice cream Abby, Aaron and I went for a walk on the beach. We had a great time hanging out and talking and had walked quite a ways before we decided to turn around and head back. On the way back I went off to check the temperature of the water. Aaron took this opportunity to tell Abby that he was going to propose and that she could take pictures. I knew she was there but somehow in the moment I forgot where she was or what she was doing.

Aaron pulled a poem out of his pocket that he wrote for me and began to read it. It started all the way back with Chrysalis and the nerf darts from the night we really noticed each other and ended with him asking me to marry him. After he read the poem he pulled the box out of his back pocket, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

I am so thankful for the way God orchestrated everything. It fit us perfectly!

New look

Over the last little bit I have wanted to redo my look. I spent some time and have a slammin desktop! This morning I sat down to update my blog look and had too many problems to count. At one point when I signed on all I saw was my blank background--no words, nada! So after much ado I wind up with something I am semi happy with. I would like to personalize my header but that is going to have to be on another day. Unless I just can't stay away...haha.


I tried to redo the look of my blog and now I can't find the rest of the blog :(
