The Best Week Ever

I've been back since Monday, but this being the Best Week Ever, I've been a little busy. Certainly too busy to look at all 900 of my Cuba photos, let alone upload them and write about our vacation. So I'm giving you a very small sampling with the above photo of what the locals called Aroma floridita but I can only find referred to as 'Ohi'a Lehua on the web. In short, Cuba was awesome. Yay!

The day after we returned, we had the inspection for our new townhouse, which is finally finished (another yay!). I couldn't really concentrate on the finer details of the water heater and whatnot because ... Ben proposed! (In the kitchen, which is very appropriate for my gourmand boyfriend - whoops - fiance. Strange, that word.)

I can't stop grinning. Having a fiance - and a pretty ring - is so fun! Wheeee!

More later... when I can control my use of exclamation points.

Congrats on everything! Great vacation, new house, and future husband! (I hated calling mine my "fiance" too... reminds me of that Seinfeld episode where the lady can't find her fiance, "the poor baby" and Elaine says, "Maybe the dingos ate your baby.")

Now, get crackin' on those Cuban flower pictures!

I think you showed admirable restraint in the exclamation point department - because you're a classy girl!!
Muchas congratulations to an adorable couple. Susan
