He Put a Ring on It :)

Dear Friends, Fans, and Family…

Well, 2010 turned out to be a pretty significant year for me in terms of milestones and initiations. In addition to starting a publishing company, kicking off my freelance editing career, and becoming a published author, I also became engaged. This past August, James asked me to do him the honor of becoming his wife… Yes people, you read that correctly, Stephanie Casher, solo diva extraordinaire, is engaged to be married!

James and I met in July 2006 at the Black Writers Conference in Dallas, and had our first “date” in December of that year. After several years of long-distance love (with him in San Diego and me in Santa Cruz), we transitioned into blissful cohabitation in August of 2009. So far, it’s been going pretty darn good. :) There is no doubt in my mind that James was meant to be my partner in all things, and to tell you the truth, I have considered him my husband, spiritually, for some time. And now we are ready to make it official in the eyes of God, the law, and the IRS, lol.

Of all the things I wanted to be when I grew up, “wife” was never very high on my list. I’m kind of cynical when it comes to marriage, because honestly, I haven’t seen it work for very many people. But when he popped the question during our road trip last summer (took me totally by surprise, by the way), there was not one inch of me that hesitated before saying “Yes.” :) I know without a doubt that this is the man I am supposed to spend the rest of my life with, so while I’m still lukewarm on the labels and completely averse to the idea of having a fancy schmancy wedding, I am thrilled to share this wonderful news with you all… And to someday become Mrs. Stephanie Casher-Lewis and make beautiful brown babies with this amazing man.

Thank you to all our friends and family who came out to our little book release/engagement celebration this weekend… We feel so very blessed to have such loving and supportive folks on our team. And stay tuned for future LewCash collaborations! :)
