It's official - as of Thursday October 16th, I am going to be a stay-at-home (future) step-mom! Monte and I had been discussing this one for a long time, as we are having some stresses with the nanny who currently stays at home with Colin during the day, and we have come to the conclusion that it's going to be best for all of us (in the long run) to have me there sooner as opposed to later. I wanted to give my bosses at least a month's notice, as I really do enjoy my current job and don't want to burn any bridges or leave them high-and-dry when I leave - so we decided to cut my time there right at the end of a pay period - thus October 15th will be my last day as Business Manager at Accelerated Sports Therapy & Fitness. It may just be a sad day ... but I promise the 16th will be an exciting one! It's always been my heart's desire to be a stay-at-home mom, to devote my time to my children (now my future step-children) and to see what avenues God will have for me in this -- it's going to be wonderful to be able to venture down this path! Please keep our family in your prayers as we make this transition.

You read correctly! My wonderful Monte proposed to me last night! He took me to a wonderful dinner at Kincaid's restaurant, then proceeded to tell me how much he wants to spend the rest of his life with me, how he and the kids love me, how we're perfect together ... then he asked me if I would marry him. I was in shock - he even had to tell me that he was being serious - and he waited until I said YES to pull out the ring! Oh my!!! :)

I just had to share that wonderful news!
