Boy Meets Girl

It's the story you've heard time and time again.

Boy meets girl.
Boy pursues girl.
Boy proposes to girl.
Girl says yes.
They live happily ever after.

Only not.

Our story is more complicated. And yet, it's all so simple.

Boy meets girl.
Girls is unavailable.
Boy and girl work together.
Boy and girl become great friends.
Girl is available.
Boy likes girl.
Girl likes boy.
Boy proposes to girl.
Girl says yes.
Boy gets deployed.
Girl plans a wedding.

I'm that girl, welcome to my blog.

Girl gets brooches

Boy proposes to Girl.
Girl says yes.
Boy goes to war.
Girl plans a wedding.
Girl asks for help.
Girl gets brooches.

So far, most of the brooches I have received have been from my family and friends. Which is perfect, that is exactly what I expected. But I got a really special surprise a couple of days ago when I stopped by Javier's parent's house. His mom handed me a bag of 4 brooches from Javier's aunt.

I have grown to love Javi's family. I am very blessed to be marrying into a family that has accepted me and love me. I am thankful to have a good relationship even with his extended family. I am grateful for the generous gift. One of these brooches has belonged to her since before she was married! What a special addition to my bouquet!

Hi Diandra,
I came across your blog about a year and a half ago when you made a very special post. I came across the link on Ethan Townsend's Facebook wall as many people had posted their love and thoughts after the tragic loss. As I know Ethan would have wanted to contribute to your wedding day, I wanted to send you a brooche for your bouquet. My email is, if you send me your mailing address I have an addition to your collection that I would love to send you.

Sincerely, Sara
