Hello all!  I'm new to the board...yay!!!  My fiancee (LOVE THAT) Jason proposed on Sunday night!  This will be my second time around, his first.  I have 2 children from a previous marriage (ages 7 and 11).  He has no children.  We have been together for over 2 years (began dating in June of 2011).  He is the man of my dreams, an amazing person, and I am so very happy to get to spend the rest of our lives together.  We have to pay for this wedding (mostly...I know our parents will help a little) so our date is looking like it'll be in the fall of 2015.  So, I'm not really doing a whole lot of planning yet but definitely looking into things...what I like, what I don't, etc.  Plus, I need to go through (or at least look into) an annullment (sp) through the Catholic church.  We were both raised Catholic but not practicing.  It would mean a lot to his parents if we did get married through the church but they are wonderful people and would understand if we can't.  For now, time is on our side, so I can at least explore the idea. 

Anyhow, probably will pop in here and there so I thought I'd introduce myself.  Attached a pic of my ring.  Eeeeeek!!!
