I have found my McDreamy!

For those of you who don’t know yet, I got engaged last Friday, October 2nd.  It was definitely unexpected and the happiest day of my life! There are no words to express how I felt that night yet “a picture is worth a thousand words”…in this case, pictures 🙂


Pit stop in London


on our way to Joburg, we made a pit stop in London for a night and of course, we had to do the usual stops…Buckingham Palace for the change of guards, Big Ben, etc. it was nice to have my parents and sis with me this time around…they had a blast in Virgin’s upper class seats! this was just the beginning of their trip, they had a night in Joburg and are now in Dodoma, Tanzania visiting the orphanage, Village of Hope- back to Dar – back to Joburg for a few days and then off to safari next week!

Give Thanks…

there always come a time in life where you just have to step back and give thanks for all the little things you have that you may take for granted. well, for me today i am thanking god, fate or whatever you believe in for my awesome boyfriend!!! we have been through a lot together in the past year but somehow we are more determined than ever to make this relationship work. the LOVE and friendship we have is the easy part but surviving the everyday circumstances and obstacles is the “work” and then of course, there is always the test of time. yet despite all these challenges, i am so grateful that i have found my best friend and someone that i love very much. he “completes me” ( so cheesy i know but true) in every way and has made me a stronger, better, and more caring individual. thanks Brian for all that you have shown me and given me but most importantly for loving me.
