LOL, I think so, majorly in fact. Here they don't really do anything until 3 months before, if I had been in the UK it would likely have been a year, however I shouldn't complain, I'm generally happy being here, certainly not complaining about the weather

This is fascinating. Going by your handle, I am guessing your a Christian. How is this working for you in a predominantly Muslim country? I would love to read the story

Well it's a long one (story) and honestly we've been considering putting it down in book form for a long time as there has been so much going on since 2001 to get to where we are now.

Yep, I'm a Christian as is she, and it is different for sure being over here, there are many things that Christians are restricted in due to the culture. However, I will say that most people here are lovely and for me being a foreigner at least they can't do enough for me.

A story for another day. Still, how very cool. Marriage is a very beautiful thing. I was blessed to have married my Jr High School girlfriend. Both of us have only ever had each other. Yep, we where both kids and met at a tiny Christian School in 1977. Got married at 20 and that was 25 years ago...Best advice I received in pre marital counseling was to always remember the 3 C's and it will work forever. Christ, commitment and communication...
May you do the same and may God bless you and yours

I think that's wise...... also it's 3.20am here so probably should be sleeping. Thanks for the 3 C's I will keep those in mind!!

Marriage? Wedding? I went to a really cool wedding recently - the bride was given away by her two daughters and the bridesmaids were the granddaughters. The best man was the grooms son. Bride and groom were so radiant, just about the happiest couple I've ever seen. One is 70 and the other is 74 - it was such a beautiful event.

I hope yours will go the same way.

As fascinating as your upcoming nuptials are (I can imagine that organizing a wedding in Egypt must be really "interesting"), I also want to say that there's been more outstanding pictures posted here. It really is too hard to point to one, even one per poster and say "this is my favorite". Every time I look at them I see something new and change my mind as to which I prefer.

My goodness, I am humbled and awed by the skills shown here. Just five I like with as much variety as possible.
