We went to my oldest daughter's boyfriend's college graduation. Gorgeous day, nice ceremony. After wards, he pulled my husband and I and asked us a very important question, then he said, "OK, I'm going to go do this!"
And right there on the lawn, in front of everyone, he asked Daughter a very important question, and of course, she said YES!
All of us (including daughter!) were very surprised. So it has been a very exciting and emotional weekend here. Daughter graduates next May so they want to get married in late May or June of 2012. It is going to be a very busy year! I already had a bit of "wedding fever" because of the Will and Kate last week....
Congratulations, Samantha and Jeffrey! (And welcome to the family, Jeff.)
