I love marriage. I love everything about it…I’m already looking forward to my engagement ring from Hearts on Fire. Shhhh.
But seriously, my dream has always been to marry and have kids…In that order. There is something about knowing that I’ll wake up in the morning, stinky breath and all, next to the one who put a ring on it. In my head I see us (by the way he looks like Idris Elba) standing before God, our families and friends vowing to love each other until death do us part. That’s a serious vow and I don’t intend to take it lightly.
Now to tell you about the man who will set my heart on fire. He will be handsome, kind and able to tolerate a spoiled girl who is still mama’s baby. He’ll understand that even though I love hard that I can also despise you with the same intensity when you violate me or those who I love. Not to mention that I’ll click out about my Goo & Kay(great-nieces). He’ll know all that and he’ll still love me. I see him in my head, coming home with beautiful trinkets to surprise me when life gets hard and I just want to give up.
I know this pretty ring and matching pendant from Hearts of Fire will cheer me up when the kids won’t stop calling my name. I laugh out loud when I think of how I used to do it to my mama just to piss her off. Ha…Karma.
Now when my Mister will come along, I don’t even know. In all honesty I’m not even rushing it but single life is getting old…I’m getting younger, you know. But seriously, there is just something about being with that one who I intend to grow old with.
I know marriage won’t be easy but I look forward to the work it will require. Besides anything worth having is worth working for.
So Spinkies, where and how did your Mister propose to you? Share the deets!
