Blessings of the Great Acorn – Handfasting on the Horizon

Crystal, my student of eight months has found the one.

The place she will go to build a nest and weather storms, the love of her life.

I saw her finding the fella she would eventually life hand fast/ marry this month.  Right on schedule.

Jeremy is already talking marriage.

Crystal is a huge believer in divination and foresight.

She has been making inquires into what I foretold for quiet some time.

Thus, we have been scouting out the location of her Handfasting.

Soon I will perform a year and a day handfasting for their engagement.

Crystal has asked me to perform her legal handfasting too.

The legal rite will be a soul bond handfasting.
