And angels dropped down from the heavens, fairies stepped forward from behind the flowers of the garden, and bloggers everywhere joined in their chorus of CONGRATULATIONS to you!!!!! (I know it seems a big deal, but hey, not everyone gets that Brillante award...)

No, no: kidding!!! Super-congratulations to you and This Man!!!! Oh, boy, will you be blogging the wedding planning, too?!? ("yes, honey, I DO...but I need to take this picture of the altar")

Let me know if I can be helpful...

I don't know which is glowing more - the Hawaiian sky at sunset, or your gorgeous face! I'm bouncing with excitement on the edge of my chair (you know the one) as i read this. The wedding bash was Jesus' favorite parable of heaven. Is it any wonder? Hugs and kisses to you both, mon Bleux. I've got my rice all picked out.

devil mood

AWWW I really don't know what to say. Congratulations! Somehow it makes sense now, more than ever, don't you think? After 18 years :)
I'm surprised to see buganvillias in Hawaii, there are a lot of them here.
And please when you find the time, take a picture of your dog, I love Jack Russells :D

Eric1313

Hey, I heard there's Mojitos here!

That's a beautiful memory. Glad you could capture it's essence in both words and photographs.

Thank you for sharing this with us all. Yep, I've been out of the loop for a long time, but I'm glad to catch up when I can. Soon I'll be back in shape.

Peace out

Eric1313

above is not devil mood--it was me, Eric1313. Very strange, as I put in only my info, yet it came out like this.

Odd. Is someone using my url?

Mary T.

I was really and truly surprised. And Happy! I'm so glad that you both are too!

Graciel @ Evenstar Art

Well, isn't life grand! What a lovely story with a happy ending. You deserve everything rich and true and filled with love. In the photos, you are simply radiant.

And thank you, sweet Gillian, for the heartflet comment on my blog. It means the world.

Gawpo

And to think I had to hear it from your email lips and then from your very mouth before finding out. BAD Gawpo! Blog-neglector no more!

As Joe would know and say so ever lovingly so---you radiate the brilliance of the very sun that gives light to our earth, Gillian. Canaanites shall each and every person be who might attend---the best wine in the house will be the miracle of your man's love for his woman, his woman's love for her man; husband, wife, life. The sacramental tink of all sacramental tinks.

We approve. We applaud.

Tink.

karen Cole

meaningful that he asked you 18 years later

that 18 years later he chooses you with
a big resounding YES:)

and who would not?

you are a shining light of love and
magic sharing your beauty with the
universe:)

he is a lucky lucky lucky man:)

I came here through Maithri's suggestion, and am I happy I did :) What a treasure you are, and I am so happy for you both, or for you four :) God bless you all.

Butch

A huge congratulations to you both!! What a lovely story. I had to laugh when you started talking about your dog and I continued to stare at the beautiful dish of food. I thought, no, it can not be. ;-)

My mind . . . of course, I started laughing at my trying to associate the words with the pictures.

Again, what a lovely place to be asked and you accepting. Well done!!

Epiphany

Oh, Gillian, I am so happy for you. Just when you thought life couldn't be more complete or abundant... Your story gives me hope. Continued happiness, love and light to you and your precious family.
