Dr. Maya Angelou has died

Donny and I celebrated our second anniversary yesterday (more on that later).  During our wedding ceremony on May 27, 2012, a friend read this poem by Dr. Angelou.  It has always been one of my favorites.

The sun has come.
The mists have gone.
We see in the distance…
our long way home.
I was always yours to have;
You were always mine.
We have loved each other in and out of time.
When the first stone looked up at the blazing sun
and the first tree struggled up from the forest floor
I had always loved you more.
You freed your braids…
gave your hair to the breeze.
It hummed like a hive of honey bees.
I reached in the mass for the sweet honey comb there….
Mmmm…God, how I loved your hair.
You saw me bludgeoned by circumstance.
Lost, injured, hurt by chance.
I screamed to the heavens…
loudly screamed…
Trying to change our nightmares into dreams…
The sun has come.
The mists have gone.
We see in the distance our long way home.
I was always yours to have
and you were always mine.
We’ve loved each other
in and out
in and out
in and out of time.

Life…

I remember using my Livejournal daily… Now, it seems that I cannot find time to update anything other than Facebook!

For those keeping track, Donny and I got engaged on October 29, 2010. 

2 hours before he proposed.

Wedding planning is insane, but amazing.  We’re planning on an early evening wedding at The State Room in Albany, NY on Sunday, May 27, 2012. 

I promised to attempt to update this more often.  In the meantime, I’m hunting for these shoes (or similar, for less than $500!).
