I Am Engaged to You!

"A friend loves at all times"
~ Proverbs 17:17

I think you're pretty special! do I!

the ring he designed 

(Thank you, April, for taking these engagement photos for Caleb and me!)

"And now good morrow to our waking souls,
Which watch not one another out of fear;

For love, all love of other sights controls,
And makes one little room an everywhere."
~ John Donne

"My face in thine eye, thine in mine appears,
And true plain hearts do in the faces rest"
~ John Donne

to the river!

A:"Oh, Caleb, the sky is so pretty!"

C: "I didn't notice the sky"

Happiest with you.

 “Haply I think on thee,--and then my state
(Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth) sings hymns at heaven's gate;

For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.” 
- Shakespeare, Sonnet XXIX

I love you!

"Let sea-discoverers to new worlds have gone,
Let maps to others, worlds on worlds have shown,

Let us possess one world; each hath one, and is one."
~ John Donne

"Wherever I am, there's always Pooh,
There's always Pooh and Me.
Whatever I do, he wants to do,
"Where are you going today?" says Pooh:
"Well, that's very odd 'cos I was too.

Let's go together," says Pooh, says he.
"Let's go together," says Pooh."

"What's twice eleven?" I said to Pooh.
("Twice what?" said Pooh to Me.)
"I think it ought to be twenty-two."
"Just what I think myself," said Pooh.
"It wasn't an easy sum to do,
But that's what it is," said Pooh, said he.
"That's what it is," said Pooh.

""Let's look for dragons," I said to Pooh.
"Yes, let's," said Pooh to Me.
We crossed the river and found a few-
 "Yes, those are dragons all right," said Pooh.
 "As soon as I saw their beaks I knew.
That's what they are," said Pooh, said he.
"That's what they are," said Pooh.
 "Let's frighten the dragons," I said to Pooh.
"That's right," said Pooh to Me.
"I'm not afraid," I said to Pooh,
And I held his paw and I shouted "Shoo!
Silly old dragons!"- and off they flew.
"I wasn't afraid," said Pooh, said he,
"I'm never afraid with you."

So wherever I am, there's always Pooh,
There's always Pooh and Me.
"What would I do?" I said to Pooh,
"If it wasn't for you," and Pooh said: "True,
It isn't much fun for One, but Two,
Can stick together, says Pooh, says he. "That's how it is," says Pooh.

~ A. A. Milne


Where can we find two better hemispheres,
Without sharp North, without declining West?
Whatever dies was not mixed equally;
 If our two loves be one; or thou and I
 Love so alike that none do slacken, none can die.”

 - John Donne

Grandpa called me to look at these!
Grandpa likes black and white. I like a rainbow.
They are all beautiful!
