Raymond gathered all of our friends in a room and made US believe that it was thanks- giving party,

Since he recently passed the board exam.

After cocktails, He then took me out in this very romantic spot.

On one knee and with a diamond RING,  asked me "Will you marry me?"

Surprised and overwhelm, i started laughing and asking him if this is for real?

He said YES, so i hugged him and said YES.......

Happiest moment of my life


LOVE works in miracles every day:

such as weakening the strong, and stretching the weak;

 making fools of the wise, and wise men of fools;

favoring the passions, destroying reason,

and in a word, turning everything topsy-turvy.


We find rest in those we love,

and we provide a resting place
in ourselves for those who love us.

LOVE is enough...........
