Our son proposed to his girlfriend this past Sunday. They've been dating for around three years, and we knew he'd bought a ring, so it wasn't exactly a surprise, but it was still so much fun! They called us via video chat (does anyone else think of the old Jetsons cartoon when they do that?), and broke the news together while showing us her ring. They were both glowing with sheer happiness and contentment. It was so special. And yes, I screamed, jumped up and down and then cried. She said her mom had the exact same reaction. Ah moms, what are ya gonna do with them? But it made their joy even more complete so it was all good.
They told us about the proposal, outdoors walking around a lake where they had their first date. She said, "he said so many nice things to me, and I can't remember any of them now!". It was very sweet.
So, now, I really want those last five pounds gone so I look nice in the wedding photos! They haven't set a date yet, of course, but we're pretty sure it'll be this summer or early fall. Those last five have been hanging on for too long! It's time for them to go!
