Happier than I've ever been

Walking on Sunshine...
This entry may ramble a bit, but give me some slack, I'm all mushy right now. :)
The last year has seen some big changes in my life. I wasn't happy with myself or my situation and I set out to correct those things. It worked and I found real happiness and self-confidence.
I met an amazing woman named Jenn. We hit it off very quickly, became great friends in a matter of no time, and soon started dating.
Jenn and I have been dating for over a year now, and it has been the most wonderful time of my life. She makes me happier than I've ever been. She gives me focus and clarity I never knew possible.
This weekend we got engaged! :)
We have talked on many occasions about long term plans together, without ever talking about marriage... until recently. :) We discussed it and put together plans to get rings for each other and setup a romantic day where we could ask each other. We haven't even gotten the rings yet, but this Sunday, we spent the day enjoying each other's company, watching the news, talking.. being in love. She fell asleep in my arms, laying on my chest, and I realized I couldn't possibly wait another day. When she woke up, I apologized for breaking the plans and asked her to marry me. The smile on her face will never leave me. She said yes and immediately asked me if I would marry her. Of course I said yes! :)
I'm not as eloquent as Jenn is, but I hope I am able to convey my absolute bliss.
My oldest brother, Stuart, was previously married and divorced and is currently married to a wonderful woman named Tierzah. Several years ago, he said something that has stayed with me.
"If you are going to spend the rest of your life with someone, they need to make you happy all the time. The problem is, if there is something about them, or something they do that bothers you, even just a little, that will build up. It may take years, but it will build up and make you miserable. When you decide to get married, you need to make sure that person makes you absolutely and blindingly happy every single moment of your life."
That is why I have not a single doubt in my mind that I want to marry Jenn. To me, Jenn is the perfect woman. Intelligent. Beautiful. Caring. Logical. Fun-loving. My friend and my love.
