The beach and ocean really are SO beautiful. Ben and I had this one (one of many) romantic night the night before we got engaged (this was almost our engagement story actually)...we were sitting on the beach in newport, watching the waves roll in. we had two glasses and a bottle of sparkling cider. there was a lot of fog that night so you couldn't see too far out into the distance, but we could see the little pier jutting out into the water. There was a bonfire going on behind us a little ways, and we could hear people playing drums and other music. There was barely a trickle of light from their fire so we could see quite well. Ben kept whispering in my ear, how much he loved me, and I can't describe how much more I fell in love with him that night. Sitting in such a beautiful place with hardly anything except the nature God blessed us with, enjoying the magic of the ocean waves. There's a reason everyone loves the beach...it's miraculous and beautiful! I'm glad I got to share that moment with Ben. And knowing there are so many more to come...how exciting! I'm just so grateful to have him and get to share the rest of eternity by his side. :)
In other news, I'm moving to California on Sunday to be FINALLY close to my love! We're SO excited to be together!!!! :) I love you Ben, I can't wait to come home to you!!!

YOU CAN BARELY SEE US IN THE FRONT ON THE LEFT, I LOVE THS RIDE, BUT I FREAK OUT EVERYTIME!!!
ISN'T THIS SO CUTE WITH THE SUN SETTING BEHIND US???
So after a really REALLY long night
the night before during which I spent 13 hours in the Las Vegas airport. If you ever want to feel within reach of insanity...try it! Ben joked that I should have kept a log of all the things that happened within that 13 hours, by videotaping myself. It would have been an interesting video to say the least. I cried three times (thanks to the birth control) and slept for 45 minutes before some idiot decided to play the slots! (at 5 a.m) Why did I have to be stuck in VEGAS of all places...the only one with slot machines! So lame. But I lived to tell about it :) Anyway, it was a long week full of fun AND stress! But I am officially moving to California in about two weeks! YAY!

How steep the climb
Or how rough the road
could sometimes be
But in the end it led me to you
and somehow led you to me
Through the many tearstained nights
And cold, lonely days;
I never thought my heart would learn
To love this way again
You came and swept me off my feet
Just like it should always be
I was so surprised to see
That you were so right for me
I would never take away
Or erase what I've been through
Because that rockiest of roads
Led me straight to you
When I look into those deep blue eyes
I see my future in a glimpse
And I can't help but wonder
What would life be like without him?
Never before was life so simple
or a laugh so sweet to share
My life has found perfection
In becoming with him, a pair.
I'd give all I have to be with him
Forever and then some more
Because in him I've found myself
And a life worth fighting for
I know he thinks it's simple
He's nothing to celebrate
But I see in him a man
Who was very worth the wait
And though I cry every now and then
Because I long to hold him near
I know the reward will be worth the cost
It will be worth every single tear.
To love again,
what a blessing it is
to be loved in return.
More of a miracle than we realize
and there's so much to be learned.
You never know when love could leave
for a while or maybe forever
So cherish those you hold so dear
leave no regrets, not ever.
My life holds so much promise now
My wildest dreams are coming true
And I can't wait for the adventures
I get to share with you...
