Wow...what a great Easter Holiday we had. It was going to be a quiet foursome with my just hubby, his daughter and her boyfriend. Everyone else was either busy or couldn't make it. Friday the BF calls hubby and asks for his daughter's hand in marriage!!!!! What happy news, we really like this guy. He planned on proposing to her at our home Easter sunday. She had no idea, but we all knew. We asked his Mom and Dad to join us for dinner and invited hubby's Mom as well. So we turned the quiet foursome into a celebratory party of 7.
As we were having hor d'ourves and drinks before dinner...the BF grabs her hand and gets down on his knee and proposes to her.. she said YES!! So with tears of joy in all of our eyes, we toasted the upcoming union. How wonderful!!!!
I have to giggle that somewhere along the way of my life and my marriage, our home has become the place where family and friends gather for holidays, celebrations and all manor of special occasions. It's almost as if we have become the patriarch and matriarch of the family. Our kids are growing up , marrying and having children and off to college. But our home is THE family home where they all want to gather. I really feel honored by this and couldn't be happier that they all feel so comfortable and at ease in our home and want to be here when the important events take place.
Or could it be that I am the only one with china and silver for 12...hmmmmmmmmm
Just kidding....so happy!!!!!!
