Last Friday was a big day. It was a day that every girl dreams of. A day that Moms and Dads everywhere have mixed feelings about.
Headless Girl got engaged.
He took her for a breakfast picnic. Something he's done before, but this time he had friends 'lying in wait' for the big moment. Obviously, since there are pictures. She wasn't expecting it to happen on this day even though she knew it was coming 'soon'.
They have been dating for 6 years so even at the young age of 22 and 23 it was the obvious next step. They are both graduating from college next week and somewhere around the start of 2014 they will be married.
I, of course, loved the centerpieces. Who wouldn't love these roses? ;-)
Since they want to get married relatively quickly we're starting to look at locations this weekend if we can. It's exciting and scary and OMG HOW DID I GET OLD ENOUGH TO HAVE A CHILD OLD ENOUGH TO GET MARRIED????????
So we are soon to be the parents of a married daughter. Any tips? Suggestions? Words of wisdom? Lay it on me. I have to be able to handle it. It's now or never!
