After 15 years……
There are few things in my life that surprise me or shock me at this point. Yesterday, March 23, 2012 at about 1800 hrs Cheryl came home from work and we had this conversation….. ME = Cheryl 😉
Me: … Leslie I need to talk to you about something.
Leslie: …. uhhhhh … oh no …. (look of skepticism and horror) … what????
Me: … I have something for you *hands her small box
Leslie: …. WHAT DID YOU DO? … THERE IS ONLY ONE THING THAT COMES IN A BOX LIKE THIS! ….. tentatively opens box and sees diamond ring
Me: … so will ya??
Leslie: I dunno! … are you divorced??? LOLOL
Me … uhhh … ya WANNA????
Leslie: ….. shaking and still has not said YES! “You wanna marry me????”
Me: …. YES! … and you still haven’t answered me!
Leslie: … Yessss I will marry you!
We have talked about making our long time relationship official often over the years but never really seriously. So, out of no where Cheryl comes home with a ring and now it appears we might actually do it. In Canada we can get married legally so I guess we figured why not? I never thought of myself as the marrying type but with the way things have been going on in my life or both our lives, change is good, change is growth and since switching my career, with Cheryl doing so well in her own cop career…what better time? Life is good and I look forward to seeing what our future has in store for us…..No date or place set yet…but if this blog keeps going I am sure I will post updated here!
Now, what better way to celebrate? Tomorrow, Sunday we get head out to the Cultus Lake area for a Dual Sport BC off-road ride. All day getting dirty with a bunch of guys. There are not too many women who do this ride on the “bigger” bikes. Great food, great way to officially start the 2012 riding season for many even though we ride all year. There will be tons of mud, rocks, pools of water, roots and gravel. Nice day predicted weather wise and perfect to get dirty!
