You and Tom have my warmest congratulations on your upcoming wedding (yay on the perfect weather forecast!), and my best wishes for a future filled with a multitude of blessings! Your 'friends first' method seems to work for a lot of people - and LDRs seem to be pretty successful as well! It was a pleasure to see your relationship blossom here in the Fora - I still remember the camping scene photo posted by both of you as a kind of reveal - too funny. I wish you both every happiness. Please do submit your story when you have a chance. You know those success stories give the rest of us hope! God Bless you both, I'll keep you both in my prayers on Saturday! (((HUG)))

Mary, thank you so much for your warm sentiment, and your blessings. After getting involved in a few "follow your heart and jump right in" relationships here on CM, I learned that friends first was the best way to go. And taking our time was well worth it..... Tom and I have such a strong foundation for the love we share, and what we will both face in our lives as a married couple.
And that camping photo you mentioned..... brings back such hilarious memories of a really crazy October weekend in PA! laughing First of all, my car got a flat tire in the airport parking garage when I went to pick up Tom and another CM friend of ours from the airport. rolling eyes When the tow truck came, there wasn't enough room for all of us to fit in the cab of the truck, so I had to sit on Tom's lap..... I think we were both blushing the entire drive to the garage. smile Then we were stuck for a few hours waiting for the car to be fixed..... which by the way needed 4 brand new tires. We had to meet another CM friend for dinner then...... which made us even later for our camping trip (we were supposed to arrive in broad daylight..... which unfortunately, didn't happen rolling eyes laughing ) We got to our campsite around 11 PM, and set up camp. The next morning, there was snow everywhere!! God must have been laughing his head off!! laughing laughing laughing That was one crazy camping trip Tom and I will never forget!! We were stranded there at the campsite all weekend because the tree branches were so heavy with snow they blocked the trails going out of the area. We had to wait until the snow started melting to leave!! laughing laughing :lol:

Mary, Tom and I wish you all the best, and we pray that God will lead you to your special someone. Thank you so much for your prayers. Tom and I will include you in ours as well on our special day. :hug: :hug:
