No More Frogs For Me

No recipe today, sorry, but bigger things than food are happening.

It's been good around here lately. Everything grows.

Including me.

Yesterday, ECG and I quietly celebrated my 32nd birthday and decided it was time to make the decision.

I've found the one I want, he wants me, and we're getting married. Yup. This thinking stomach is hitching my fortune to another cerebral digestive system, and we're making a go of it.

Congratulations. On both birthday and getting hitched to a lovely bloke.

Bloody marvelous stuff! You've cheered me no end.

Summer's the best time of the year, isn't it? Am very, very happy for you.

Lucy said...

And that is a beautiful photo-story. Cool frogs.

Susan in Italy said...

Hey, wow! Congratulations and best wishes to you both! When's the big day? (or is that TBA)

Elizabeth & Joshua said...

Woo-hooooo! We are SO HAPPY FOR YOU!

sarahww said...

Felicidades! We plan to celebrate BIG TIME with you both when we return.

32 seems like a good year, thus far...

Wow, a double happiness post! Happy birthday and congrats on the engagement.

Unsolicited advice from someone who is old enough to have babysat you: Blow your wad on the honeymoon, not the wedding.

CONGRATULATIONS and best wishes!

Happy Birthday! Happy Engagement! This is such exciting news. I could not have imagined your post based on the title. Makes perfect sense to me now!

Christina - Congratulations to you and ECG. Happy birthday, too. What lovely suprise statements these were to find embedded with more beautiful images of your Eden.

Stunning photography.

Congratulations you guys! What an amazing present... I just turned 32 and all I got was a trip to Colorado! Think of the package in the mail as your first engagement gift then!
I hope no one else has got it for you yet ;-)

Christina said...

Ah guys, you're all so sweet!

Lucy: I'm happy for me too. Thanks for the best wishes, and yes, summer sure is amazing.

Genie: Thank you! I'm glad you like the pictures. Those frogs demanded camera-attention.

Susan in Italy: Thanks! We're shooting for April and perhaps honeymooning in your neck of the woods for a couple of weeks.

E and J: Thanks guys. I'm glad you're back in town!

Saraww: Thank you, friend. You've been out of town too long. Come back. I miss you.

Kelly: That sounds like unsolicited advice that I'll heed, so thank you for it. We're planning on something very simple at my parents' house for the wedding and a trip abroad for the honeymoon.

Kristan: Thank you, lady!

Susan: This IS exciting! Thank you for your best wishes!

Erin: Thank you! Due to events outside of my control, we've had to postpone celebrating a little bit, but don't worry, it will be done in style promptly.

Shaun: Thank you from both of us. Thank you also for the compliments on my little garden--it's small, but well-loved.

Wendy: Thank you on both accounts. I've got to give props to ECG fpr teaching me so much about how to take decent photos in the first place. I'm always learning something from him.

Ann: Thank you! I'm excited to see what is in that mysterious package, and it WILL be the first engagement gift.
