In the beginning...

"In every phenomenon the beginning remains always the most notable moment." -- Thomas Carlyle
It probably began a couple of years ago like this:
Using what I learned from countless childhood fairytales, I figured that if I kissed enough frogs I might someday find my prince. But finding the right frog isn't so easy, especially when you don't have a fairy godmother or evil seawitch to help with the magic. As with most things in my life, it wasn't until I stopped pursuing amphibian romances that I stumbled upon this one.

"I wait for the LORD, my soul does wait, And in His word do I hope."
-- Psalm 130:5

After a few months of wining and dining, thoughtful conversations, and happy excursions, my frog transformed into...

I can happily say that since that first fateful day we've matured to this -->

... and it doesn't look like that's changing any time soon.

So here begins forever.
Can't wait.
