New Adventures That Are Mostly The Same.   29 comments

So…this past weekend while I was super quiet here on the blog, on the cusp of MoP, while expansion news was flowing faster than the chocolate river at Wonka’s factory, and while I was completely oblivious to pretty much all things involving WoW, this happened:

It was really sweet, and under each option was commentary that made me laugh and smile. Brade really knows me very well and knew that I’d start with “no” and work my way around to “yes”, observing each option, and so the answers played off of each other. I don’t usually do “scrap book” type things, but I’ve tucked this little square of paper away to put somewhere safe so I can look back on it an smile as I remember it.

For those of you who don’t know my history with Brade, I met him in WoW. We started talking about books one night while I was up late farming Night Dragon’s Breath back in Vanilla, and things sort of went from there, and before I knew it I was relocating to Seattle. We’ve been together somewhere around six years now. He continues to make me laugh almost daily, and helps to keep me balanced. He allows me to be who I am, with all my (many) flaws, and doesn’t judge me for them. He celebrates my joys and helps me through my struggles. And, without fail, he always finds a way to make me laugh – no matter how worked up I am or upset I am, he always manages to coax a smile from me. And I love him for that.

He once did a guild update that talked about defining moments in relationships. I can’t say if his theory on defining moments is entirely accurate – but I can say that I have certainly had those moments where I’ve said to him “if I can’t share this with you, who can I share it with?!”. I do know that I can share anything with Brade. He is the one person that I can completely let my hair down with and know that he won’t think less of me, no matter how shallow my complaints may be, or how silly the things I let frustrate me appear. Someone asked me how I thought married life would be, and I told them that Brade and I have been together so long that I anticipated it would pretty much be the same, only with better jewelry. πŸ™‚

It’s truly amazing where and how you can find happiness, and I don’t think other people should define those parameters for you. When all is said and done, the truth of the matter is that I’ve found someone that I want to grow old with and I’m thankful every day that he entered my life. I know that I am looking forward to our future adventures, and anticipate much laughter and many more smiles along the way.

  4. That is so sweet. πŸ™‚

    Congratulations to both of you!

  5. Oh Beru I am so happy for you! I love reading these stories where people meet their soul mates in a video game (common interest) and it works out so well. I want to see twitter/blog spam of wedding flower, dress, bands photos for the next several months!

  6. Congrats. πŸ™‚

  7. Wow! Congratulations to you and Brade!! All the best for you two πŸ™‚

    I am highly amused by Brades’ rather unusual approach. He sounds worth keeping.

  12. a) Congratulations!

    b) I love the proposal method. Excellent job, Brade.

  13. Congrats to you both and a big thumbs up to Brade on a creative and memorable proposal. You’re such a darling, Beru; I’m delighted to see that someone equally darling has found you. πŸ™‚

  14. EEEEEEE, Grats! πŸ˜€ That’s so exciting, I am beyond tickled for you both!

  15. Congrats!

  16. Congrats to you both! And as someone who married her own best friend after being together for 6 years, marriage really doesn’t change anything. Except to give you warm fuzzies when he refers to you as “my wife.” ❀


  17. Congratulations!

  18. Thank you so much everyone! We are very excited πŸ™‚

    I apologize for not thanking each person individually, I had a cortisone shot this morning and my left hand feels quite…odd. Please forgive me, and know that I appreciate everyone’s thoughts and well wishes.

  19. Congratulations, Beru!

  20. Congratulations Beru! What an inventive (and FUN!) proposal!

  21. Wow, how exciting, congratulations! Wish you both all the best!

  22. I love that proposal. It’s so dreamy /sighs πŸ˜€

  23. Congratulations! From a happily married person to a soon-to-be happily married person, let me tell you there’s nothing better than being with your best friend in the world through thick and thin. My best wishes go with both of you!


  24. D’awwww congratulations!

  25. Best wishes for a long and happy life together!

  26. I’m so happy for you! The card is so sweet. Here’s to the same great relationship with better jewelry πŸ˜‰

  27. Congratulations to both of you!

    Just so you know, the difference between being married or being in a long term relationship (besides the expensive jewelry) is being able to introduce your man as “my husband” instead of “my friend”.

    It may sound corny, but if it makes you feel proud to introduce him as “husband” to you closests of friends, then you know you not only found the right person but you also made the right choice.
    And if you understood what i just wrote and realize that it is so, then you are ready for that neverending quest that is called marriage, indeed.


  28. A little late there, but big congrats, Beru and Brade!

    I am very happy for you guys! I wish you both the best in life, love, happiness and murlocs.

    Much love,

  29. Yay, congratulations!! And that is the sweetest & most original way of asking!
