1st Blog

So, I basically joined this blog revolution along side my Sister and Brother-In-Law due to constant nagging and from them and a slight interest in this odd cult like monster. I actually have plenty to "blog" about due to the recent doors that have been opened in my crazy life. For the sake of carpal tunnel I will summarize them into three simple points.

1. Wife
2. Thailand
3. 2//12

1. Basically I have now been engaged for two weeks. I did the deed at my favorite beach, Salt Creek Beach in Dana Point, after a hot day at Sea World and a scrumpsous dinner at La Fondue. I had my dear friend Kenny set up a canvas on an easel on the point around sun set. The canvas had a big black cloth draped over it and it was waiting for us after dinner. I walked her down to the beach and blindfolded her so she couldnt see what was coming. I walked her to the point and explained that I made something for her for "her new house." (Litttle did she know that I was completely lying). I took off the blindfold and she pulled back the cloth. As she pulled back the cloth and I went down on one knee behind her, she read the sign taped on top of the canvas that said "Will You Marry Me?" She wouldnt turn around because she almost passed out (yeah Im that good). As she caught her breath I read some thought out words and we starred at her new ring (and my new debt). we are completely stoked and plan on getting maried Sept 08'. See you there.

2. Just got funded $1,300 to go to Surin, Thailand on a design project with CSUSB. I will be there 20 day designing packaging and identities for their silk, tea, coffee, and wine. Totally excited. I leave Sept 9 (after I get back from two weeks in Maui) and will get back around the 30th. Keep you updated.

3. Lastly, no so exciting, but Ive been wanting to do this forever. I am officially and legally Joel Beukelman doing business as Two of Twelve Art and Design. got my fcticous Business Name. Done!
