Hey guys, it’s Brad and Shalita here. Straight to the point: we’re getting married!
I know, right? RIDICULOUS(ly awesome). I suppose we should tell the story here or something, so here goes our best shot:
We’ve been an official couple for six months. The beginning of this thing involved a conversation which started with me explaining to Shalita about my favorite animals and why I like them so much… and ended with me asking her if she would like to stop being single.
Over the last six months, we’ve made it a point to get away from the city at least semi-regularly. We go out to some scenic place in the middle of nowhere, NZ (like you might have noticed with the last post) and get some quality time exploring with each other.
Just on Saturday, we again skipped town and headed out for the middle of nowhere. This particular section of the middle happened to be Otaki Gorge. I (Brad) had no idea what it would be like there, but it turned out to be beautiful – with a suspension bridge over a mountain stream and all kinds of crazy native birds surrounding the place. To simplify what is actually already a pretty complicated story: we started a conversation about each other, about the idea of spending your entire life with another person, and yes… about my favorite animals. This time, the conversation ended with me down on one knee and Shalita in a state of shock. (Good thing she said “yes” eventually!)
We don’t really have any details figured out as to what happens next, but odds are now pretty good that we’re getting married at some point in the near future! We’re both totally looking forward to it, looking forward to seeing you guys at the celebrations sooner or later, and definitely both looking forward to living with our favorite person in the world! G*D is good…
