The next phase of life




My daughter, Min, got engaged last week!  She had never met anyone she wanted to marry, and I was settled in the thought that she never would marry.  This is so wonderful!  Her fiance, Luke, got her an opal surrounded by diamonds because she didn't want the traditional diamond solitaire.  They are planning a Spring 2016 wedding, in the woods, very Bohemian style, which fits well with Min's hippy nature.  They are currently looking for a suitable wooded venue that will let them bring in food, and have music well past the 11 p.m. Noise curfew time of most State Parks.  Min has a friend who lives on 300 acres, so she's planning to see if any place on the property will work.  I'm so happy for them.  Luke is a really great guy.  He's a vegetarian like Min.  He dotes on her and is very kind and considerate of her, plus he has a good job and a good head on his shoulders.  Min is very happy and I couldn't ask for more for her.

That ain't all, as they say. Friday a crown came off one of my teeth, right after my dentist's office closed. I also got bitten by a tick. So Monday I got the crown put back on. Today I went to the doctor about the tick bite because it didn't seem to be going away. She said I had the beginning of a bull's eye rash and likely Lyme's Disease. I'm now on antibiotics for that and have to go for another blood test in two weeks. To which I say to fate, karma, or who ever, "really, really?!"

I dearly hope the Antibiotics work their incredible magic. Lyme can be a really hard illness to get rid of if you don't catch it early on.....Hoping for the BEST for you, my dear.
And CONGRATS to your daughter! Doing The Happy Dance, as I write this. That is a Beautiful ring.....!

Karen, when I first read, this guess I only read ring, and Luke. Am glad I took a min. and reread. Like the fact he's a great guy, and has a J O B, and she's happy!. Best to both of them, it has to make you feel a little better knowing someone to watch over her. And maybe she will change her mind on other things someware along the way. :)
