On May 24th, 2011, I posted a letter I had written to my then “boyfriend” or whatever you want to call “r”. Whilst glancing over the posts and categories on my blog here, I came across that post and letter. Here are my reflections now over a year later, in January of 2013.
When I look at the time stamp of that post, I realize that even though I didn’t know it then, I was already in love with (my now husband) Ken. I had “met” him on Twitter in 2009 through Christine Fischer and sent him the occasional message but really didn’t get to “know” him until around his birthday in May of 2011.

Before we knew it, Kenneth was planning to come to AZ to see me which was almost a year ago!
Kenneth and I were engaged on November 23rd, 2011 at the Clarendon Hotel in Phoenix. The next day we spent with my family having Thanksgiving dinner.
It seemed like time would never go fast enough and we would never get married. I visited Kenneth in England in February of this year and he came back in June. Since then our steady diet of telephone calls and web chats has continued and assisted our relationship in blossoming.
Finally! The day came on November 3rd, 2012 (my Maternal Grandmother’s birthday incidently). We were married… Continue reading
