The Smanlons.

About two weeks ago, I came home from working in the village to find a handsome visitor waiting for me on my front porch! Andrew flew to Thailand and made his way to my house, with little help from my teammates! We spent a few days in my town in Thailand, he was able to travel to the village we work in, eat at my favorite places, meet my friends, feel the ridiculous heat, and we just got to spend time together. It was wonderful.

On Thursday, I took him to one of my favorite restaurants, it's a long walk, but the view and chicken and cashews is worth it! The restaurant overlooks the lake, the wooden bridge, and the Mon village on the other side of the lake. On the walk home, we fought off a few dogs and then stopped at the little grocery store and got ice cream cones. It started to storm off in the distance on our walk back so we decided to sit on the porch and watch the lightening when we got home. We sat there chatting for awhile, but Andrew just kept saying the same thing about how he liked the way the lightening lit up the mountains. I agreed the first couple times, but then just thought he was being weird. Then (almost getting folded up in his chair) he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! Of course I said yes, I'd have been crazy not to. He traveled literally around the world to see me!

P.S. Yes, I deleted the last blog. Rough couple days for sure, but I'm doing alright now. Thanks for the prayers.
