I am tickled pink to share that, after 5 years of dating, my 'bro-in-law' Jordan finally popped the question...
and Sonya, my baby sister, said YES!
Together, in front of the Church Street Christmas tree, they grew up that little big more. They morphed from just boyfriend and girlfriend to future husband and wife.
There are very few people I've shared my entire life with. Few people I can want to punch in the nose yet love unconditionally at the same time. Few people whose dreams and goals and ambitions mean as much to me as my own. But my sister is one of those people. My family, my best friend, the other pea in my pod. And to see her dreams coming true. To watch her - that little pipsqueak who used to follow me around and tattle when I snuck an extra corn muffin - grow into a beautiful, successful woman is truly a blessing.
Sonya and Jordan, Carl and I are so happy for you. You are truly perfect for one another, and we look so forward to the journey you'll share in the future.
We love you!
