Awesome news Ohfor. Been following your story from the beginning and this couldn't have happened to a better survivor.

Best to you both.

Thanks all.

I am always surprised when new folk pop in on a thread and let me realise just how big this wonderful support group I have in SI is. So to those of you who have stopped in here now, thanks.

And Bleep, what CharliB wrote is so lovely is it not? So thank you both.

Josiep, I had that ditty playing in my head all morning until I read Cooley’s post in the D/S thread. I looked the song she recommended up on YouTube. Cured me of the ditty, but now I have that one on repeat in the head.

This stuff just keeps wanting to bubble out of me, so here is a little more.

Since we got back I have been kept busy. First, we just had to get to see all of her friends that have become our couple friends and whose company I enjoy. Then we had to do the rounds of the extended Friday night supper crowd. That bit I never anticipated, but understand. Then came the manufacturing of reasons to meet friends of hers from school or university who I don't even recall her ever mentioning, but who just happen to be in the vicinity.

It has been an interesting experience for me. An engagement ring has a strange effect on women. It seems to make them all 20 somethings again. They all become giggly and touchy, and hyperactive. They ooh and ahh, grab the ring hand, get dreamy eyed and then repeat.

Oh yes, and then there is the wedding planning. I sort of forgot that a wedding is I suppose, a natural consequence of engagement and asking a woman to be your wife.

I do know one thing. I argue about nothing. I thought that given that I am sort of a high risk fiancé, that we should maybe look at early May at the latest. She would rather take the risk and wait till September. Admittedly, our world is prettier then.

What is settled is that Sunshine will be our flower girl. DD will be her bridesmaid, DS my best man. Mom (that is MMS's mom if you have forgotten) will walk her down the aisle and give her away.

After some input from a wise advisor, I am considering suggesting that we ask J to be our wedding coordinator.

And all this from a woman who, as I recall, had no regard for the institution of marriage.

What a fabulous post to read. I am so, so happy for you. I love your comment about it being criminal to be so happy. Enjoy every minute of it!!!

Cooley2here posted 4/19/2019 17:13 PM

We have watched this from the beginning. It is such a wonderful story.

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

Louis Armstrong

Next song on your list

Fabulous story, may you have many long and happy years together!

steadychevy posted 4/19/2019 21:12 PM

Congratulations, ohfor, and to MMS and Sunshine, DD and DS, too. It'll be a natural transition because you're already family.

shakentocore posted 4/20/2019 00:00 AM

Congratulations! I could not be happier for you!

I must point out, however, that if (as) MMS is a woman, she is your fiancée (two e’s). The male is the fiancé (one e).

Congrats !!!

ohforanewme posted 4/20/2019 03:33 AM

Hey babypuke

Thanks for stopping by again.  It has been a while. I will never forget what Ponus wrote about you in my JFO thread. Now knowing where you are from I feel an even stronger connection.  Right now I am munching on an Albert Heijn minder suiker stroopwaffel that I warmed and softened on my coffee cup.  It is as if you invited me in for morning coffee and a chat. 

steadychevy, it means a lot from you.  Like babypuke, you have walked this entire journey with me and never lost patience.  You are right,  we are already family and have been for quite some time.  Feels like forever. 

shakentocore, thanks.  I never knew that.  Will correct it from now on. Am presuming that the pronunciation stays the same? 

lizgwvet, my subconscious keeps telling me that your screen name should have relevance to me, but nothing comes to mind.  Is there  a European connection? In any case, thanks. 

phmh and Buster, thanks to you as well.  

Cooley2, I love old Louis.  Don't mind that one playing in my head all day.  Going to get it on YouTube right now.

What a wonderful story! Life is full of ups and downs and you have been blessed with the good part of life. Glad you are enjoying your amazing happiness right now. You deserve it!

What great news!

Congratulazioni per il tuo fidanzamento xx

deena04 posted 4/20/2019 19:51 PM

Yay to you both!! The biggest of congratulations coming your way.
