Matteo And Monica Have Gotten Engaged!

Regular readers know that my blog is more of a "corkboard outside the office door" than a personal diary. But some things need to be shared. We got engaged yesterday! The future Mrs. Matteo is my lovely girlfriend, Monica. We had our first date back in March, 2005, and became a couple about a year ago. She's a wonderful Catholic girl from a big eastern Oregon farm family (she has 8 brothers and sisters). It's been so much fun courting her!

I'm a loyal reader with a freakish amount of experience in the wedding industry to offer (for free.) So contact me with questions if you like... I used to be President of a big bridal magazine--there was even a character in a movie based on my wedding planning -ness. My sister owns a printing place in Mill Valley, which does a lot of high quality wedding invitations, which I can phone you into. Anyway, just offering my 800-mile-away advice because I like your blog.

Monica and Matteo,
Congratulations!! I´m so happy for you. Recieve a big big hug from your friend in Colombia, and If your plane ever bring you down here, you have a place to stay.

You can see this relationsip is blessed. Just look at the Spirit in their being. I already love Monica and have never met her! Congratulations you two! May the Lord bless you, lead, guide and protect you.
Love Nancy

I got tears in my eyes as I read your account of your proposal- How romantic and meaningful considering your earlier thougts and ties to relating to the Poor Clare convent.
You will now consecraate (Make holy and Christlike)yourlife for the building up of your family husband and all those that are blessed to associate with you. There is no higher calling than being a mother, wife and beloved daughter of God.
May the Lord Bless you and your marriage and family.
With Love and admiration,
Dick Peery
