that’s right, my future husband received a phone call this early evening that started with, “i’m a mess.”Â i wasn’t a pretty picture — trying to get those three words out in a rather high and squeaky voice with tears and snot running down my face while the neighborhood probably watched and wondered why on earth i was wandering around town in such hysterics.

if you’re like anybody else you’re thinking, “gee louissa, you should’ve called somebody else.Â way to scare the guy after only three and a half months into knowing him.”Â and you’re right, maybe i could have totally freaked him out.Â but the best part?Â he seemed completely unfazed by the blubbering fool he put a ring on and knew how to handle the emotionally undone louissa quite well.Â as someone said tonight, “you sure do know how to pick ’em!”Â that’s right, i do.
and i picked the best.
