Made it official tonight by buying an engagement ring for Jimye Faye. She was a bit overwhelmed by it all and it has taken her a bit of time to realize this is all real. After picking out her ring we stopped at the Cheesecake Factory for dinner.
Jimye Faye and I first met when our families attended the same church in the 1950's. My family moved away in 1958 and did not see each other again for many years. We reconnected through a Facebook group for people who grew up in Southwest Oklahoma City. Last year we met for dinner a couple of times, since we were both single and were tired of going out to eat alone. Our first actual "date" was this past December when we went to dinner and then drove around town viewing Christmas lights. From there we started dating for real and things moved on from there. We have many things in common and this has just felt "right" since that first date. No wedding date has been set for now. Just taking life one day at a time so stayed tuned for future announcements.
