WOW, I just saw some on FB (I didn't realize we weren't already friends Moonstone) You are the most beautiful bride. WOW!
I'm not the best about approving friend request. But I just approved it.... but now I can't find you as my friend. Weird.

Tyler and I are aiming to have our Jubilee (our term for our wedding, he came up with it! ) somewhere between February - May of 2011... Gotta chat with the folks and see how that works with their plans since they'll be down in Florida for a month or so in the spring. We're looking at Hawaii as the backdrop, altho several friends have mentioned that we may have to take this show on the road to satisfy everyone... A cross-multi-country Jubilee tour bus, maybe?
Since we're both from such different regions, we figured having the ceremony on neutral ground where everyone has some travel to attend made most sense, and we plan to honeymoon on Kauai, so why not just have everyone join us there for a few days... If Hawaii doesn't work out, we may look at Sedona since that is where we aim to be living as of next year.
I'm having dinner with my folks tomorrow to discuss all of this and see how it all falls into place... Our first choice is for Valentine's Day, which gives us about 6 months to get this thing together, guess I'll know whether or not that works for my folks after tomorrow evening, it's actually real important to me that they can share this experience with me, we've become such great friends over the past 10 years or so.
Whelp, kinda exciting stuff to start planning a party to celebrate our life and love with friends and family... Crazy ride, this life!

FireRocket - I do believe I have gone on the record as to Colin's and my relationship being complicated! Our break-up was a long process, and confusing to anyone other than the two of us who were actually involved in it. I'll try and give you a run down here:
Col and I broke up last August but we would be living together for another year since his place is rented out till October and we've sort of geared our lives to be financially combined. So, we didn't go public with that info b/c it'd be too much of a pain in the ass to deal with all the questions and weirdness of why we weren't together anymore but were still living together. I've known Tyler since meeting at Vibes '08 and we really connected at the following Mountain Jam in '09 after which he was totally into me. I'm clueless as to that sort of thing tho, and he never pushed his own agenda since he is a perfect gentleman and I was in a relationship with Colin up until last summer. As such, Tyler's and my friendship never went into anything other than being really great friends who were attracted to one another and shared a solid connection.
Fast forward to this spring - as Col and I were finally nearing the end of our living arrangement, we decided to make our break-up from last summer public knowledge. Almost a whole year had elapsed from when we originally decided to part ways, and fortunately we were both comfortable and amicable the entire time and continue to be so.
So then at Mountain Jam this year, Tyler and I were hanging out like we do every year (which is something we both always look forward to, we seemed to get more time together at that fest than at the Vibes we were at previously) and it just all went from there... Talk about timing, sometimes I still can't believe that everything came together as seamlessly it did since we've both been really attached/attracted to one another for some time now but just never had the opportunity to explore that connection very deeply since I was in a relationship when we first met and then going thru the process of shedding that relationship last summer and not wanting to explore possibilities since I needed some downtime to be on my own and develop closure in regards to the end of Colin's and my chapter... Well, love is a wonderful thing and it comes when and as it does, and Tyler having found me at the right space and time in both of our lives is one of those fairy-tale romances.
Colin is happy for me, we'll always be great friends, and I'm glad he is genuinely happy for me b/c gawdammit - I never would have imagined this happening, but when you meet "the one" well, everything falls into place just so perfectly... It would be both difficult and foolish to deny it, so hell - Tyler is THE ONE and I'm letting go of the edges and just surfing in the slipstream of the universe, all happy cozy and content and just allowing for this blessed bounty to befall me.

The outpouring of love, understanding and support from our friends and families has been overwhelmingly positive... Neither of us have ever been more certain of anything in our lives. It's so sweet to have arrived to this place where everything is possible.
