I have been bursting to tell you!

Sunday, February 16, 2020

About a month ago, our daughter's boyfriend asked to take my husband and I out to dinner. He requested we keep it a secret from our daughter.
After a nice dinner, he told us how much he loves our daughter and would like our blessing to ask her to marry him. We were thrilled. He has been so good to and for her.
This is his first marriage. Our daughter was married before, right out of college. Sadly it ended, leaving hurt feelings and a sweet grandson. fortunately for his sake (he is now 16) they manage to get along pretty well now.
At Christmas her boyfriend had given he a special Valentine's Day weekend away. Dinner out at a special restaurant overlooking NYC. We knew this was when he was going to propose.
Back in the fall, our daughter had told us her boyfriend's mother had given him his grandmother's engagement ring. At the time, our DD told us "I want it!"
SInce mid January I have been bursting with the news. I could not really share it for fear it would get back to DD somehow.
Saturday night we got the call.

SHe said YES!!!!!
We are thrilled to be adding a new son-in-love to our family.
I am thrilled to finally be able to share the exciting news with all of you!
I hope you all have a beautiful and blessed day!
