We did it!! We’re engaged! 💍🎉 A spontaneous moment, under an unexpected double rainbow at one of my childhood beaches, he got down on a knee with tears in his eyes and asked me, his favorite person in the whole world, to be his person forever. Of course I said, Yes, yes, yes!!!!!

Today we celebrate the Venerable Martyrs Galaction and Epistime. Saint Galaction was born to parents who could not conceive. Living as fervent pagans, Galaction’s mother came to learn about Christ through a secret priest who preached at people’s homes. The boy grew up in a pious manner and was educated well. When he was 24, his parents found him a noble bride by the name of Epistime. Before they were married, Galaction revealed to her that he was a Christian and preached the faith to her. She was immediately baptised and agreed to flee together to two monasteries on a nearby mountain, one for men and the other for women. A fierce persecution of Christians soon broke out and the pagans learnt of the location of these monasteries. The other monks and nuns fled, but Galaction remained in his cell reading the scriptures. The pagans seized him and as Epistime saw them dragging him away to torture, she asked for the blessing from her Abbess to suffer with her fiancé. They were lead to torture where they cut off their hands and feet, and tore out their tongues. They were then beheaded and their bodies left unburied. A dedicated former servant of Epistime, who too had become a monastic, took the bodies and reverently buried them, recording down their virtuous life and martyrdom. May the Venerable Martyrs intercede for us always + #saint#saints#galaction#epistime#emesa#martyr#martyrs#martyrdom#sinai#faith#pagan#child#mother#father#wedding#betrothed#monastic#monastery#monasteries#ascetic#fiance#fiancee#nun#monk#nuns#monks#abbess#venerable#orthodox#sophia
So, most of you already know I recently got engaged. I couldn't be happier! I wanted to take this opportunity to give you all a taste of the incredible sweetness and unconditional love bestowed upon me by my fiance, Clare Hambleton! She has always been supportive and pushed me to be the best version of myself. Words cannot express the immense joy I feel when I think of her being by my side for the rest of my life. ❤
The sun is shinning, I got to spend the morning with my beautiful friend @elle1182 and Emma’s future husband Hudson ❤️ and I just got a free coffee at one of my favourite cafes 🎉 #winning#husbandandwife#betrothed
