    Just a little over 7 years ago, yosi and I were watching tv, when he looked at me and said, "We should get married."
    Knowing that he had dropped the ball once before, and knowing better than to get my hopes up, I said, "Sure. Okay."
    He said, "No really. We should."

    Thinking nothing of it, when he picked me up from work less than a week later, I was informed that the place and the date had already been chosen all I needed to do was talk to the rabbi.
    I spent the next 3 months in shock. Yosi had even shocked the rabbi. "Usually, my weddings involve the groom doing nothing, saying nothing and told to 'just show up.' This is the first it has been the bride."
    We picked our Ketubah and the Tallit that we would use as our Chuppah. Ring and dress bought, guests invited, honeymoon planned, and time off from work arraigned.

    I can honestly say that the last seven years have not been a bed of roses, nor would I have wanted them to be, but I am about as happy as a wife could possible ask to be.


    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Yosi!!!

    Congrats, newlyweds!

    Be sure to let Yosi know that you could've done better, & that he's lucky.
