    So here I am, sipping another cup of coffee as the flowers are being done downstairs. Caterers should be here soon and the GF is off getting her hair done.

    Yeah, I am a bit nervous, but it's an even calm kinda nervous. I'm sure you married people know what I mean. Even though we have been together for over 7 years (living together for 6) it's still a big step. One that I am really excited and happy to be taking.

    Her family will be here, my family will be here, and many of our friends as well. A gathering of the tribes, so to speak. It is such a wonderful feeling to have so many people who love you come together for you to help celebrate your love. It's absolutely one of the best days of my life so far.

    Well, it's time to go downstairs and jump on into the whirlwind. Hopefully I can find a minute later to post an update. Even though I have only met a few of you in person, all of you feel to me like a great big Ridemonkey family. Thank you for all your encouraging words over the last few days. I wish for each of you the happiness and love that has found me. :love:

    I've been to one of those. Surprisingly, it was a total blast!

    Anyway, Ciaran, how did you know she was the girl for you? If you don't mind me asking hearing a little of the story is always cool. Good luck bro!
