It's Official
The Wonderful News
A Sweet Surprise !

I am so happy to announce that my son is getting married! He is marrying the most wonderful young lady and I will be happy and proud to call her "daughter!" I have known for about a week but was waiting for our celebration tonight to announce it on my blog. Y'all will never guess when I found out! When Mr. P and I were away on on our anniversary trip we got an unexpected but very welcome call from our son and his girlfriend. He decided to propose on our anniversary to make it extra special and for good luck since he knows that his Dad and I have been happily married for 24 years. Needless to say, the tears of joy started flowing and it was an AMAZING way to end our anniversary:)

Wow! What exciting news! I just know you must be an amazing mother in law. You know, I met my husbands parents less than 48 hours before our wedding? I was nervous to say the least! Unfortunately they live on the other side of the country, but we always have fun together when we visit.

Susan, that is wonderful news! Congratulations to your dear son and his bride to be. You will be the sweetest mother-in-law! Have they set a date?
They are a lovely couple. I enjoyed looking at the celebration pictures. It looks like you set a beautiful table.
Enjoy this special time!
Blessings!
