It doesn't happen too often when I struggle with words, but tonight is definitely one of those nights. It's not the fact that I'm on the last pages of one chapter of my life, it's just that I'm so overwhelmed emotionally by the fact that I've taken the next step with the most incredible person I've ever met (sorry Seth, you were a close second though). Words are really failing me here ... but I will say it's just an amazing feeling when you know you've met the person (Her name, if you're wondering is Talya) who will share your life and your dreams with you in the future. 30 years after my dad proposed to my mom, I accidentally (honest) chose the same day to pop the question. I hope that my marriage to Talya will be as blessed as theirs has been ...

Congrats my Israeli brother from another mother. I have never met this wonderful woman but if she is able to put up with you then she is truly blessed.

All the best Avram I couldn't be happier for you. Mazel Tov.

Thanks to everyone for your kind wishes. They do mean a lot.

Hanania said...

So...does this mean we're officialy dis-engaged?

MAZAL TOV to you and Talya. Please don't forget my special offer: If you name your son after me I will increase my gift by 20 NIS, AND if you name your daughter after me I will increase my gift by 30 NIS. This is no joke. (Since only you will be seeing this comment I can tell you that I know you can use the money, so please consider it.) BTW, how do I post a comment so that everyone can see it?
All the best to you and your wonderful future wife.

This news is truly exciting news!!

I know how long you've anticipated this day so all I can say is Mazel Tov and congratulations to both you and your fiance, Talya!!

I look forward to hearing all of the details from you, wow!

Avi, you deserve the best in life and the fact that you proposed to Talya, it speaks volumes about her as a person in my book!

This is the beginning of an exciting ride for the two of you, so enjoy every bit of it!

about time, now I get the place to myself right? Congrats and Mazal Tov to both of you. I can't believe I am using this blog stuff, second time ever. Oh and I get to plan the bachelor party right, because I already reserved the kegs.

So, I guess this means I will have to share you afterall. Well, all I ask for is a tennis match here and there. But seriously,Ronit and I are so happy for the two of you. From the moment Ronit met Talya she knew that this was a match of destiny. As usual, Ronit was right.
Mazal Tov on this next chapter in your life. You should only be blessed with mazal and simcha.
We can't wait to celebrate with you!
