The way to a man's heart...

For dinner tonight, Misty made gorgonzola & apple pork chops with garlic mashed potatoes. Last night, she made smoked sausages with roasted potatoes, carrots, and corn on the cobb. Lined up for tomorrow is butternut squash soup. Later in the week will be chicken piccata with pasta and pesto sauce, then country ham and macaroni casserole. She's got so much lined up on her menu that I don't know when we're going to get a chance to actually eat leftovers.

I am marrying a good cook.

Speaking of getting married, it's just starting to set in that our wedding is barely more than a month away. It won't be the typical wedding though — we've each done that before. We're eloping, only not in the strictest sense of the word, since it's planned, and our families and friends know about it. We're just not inviting anyone. We'll likely have a party to celebrate afterward instead.

A few days ago, Misty and I went to Levy's where we found an engagement ring. It's a beautiful piece from the 1930s. The resizing will take a couple weeks. After that, we can finally consider ourselves "officially" engaged.

I am looking forward to being able to call Misty my fiancé instead of my girlfriend. Even more so, I'm looking forward to being able to call her my wife.
