Just Another Perfect Day . . . and a Celebration

Yesterday was an amazingly beautiful day with a fittingly beautiful conclusion --  when Justin (our younger son) and Claui (his significant other for the past five or six years) came up for  dinner, they brought several bottles of prosecco for a celebration -- because they just got engaged!

No wedding date, no plans just yet . . . Claui has been a dearly-loved member of the family for some time now -- a ceremony won't change anything.

But what fun to celebrate this next step with them, here on a magical spring day!

I must be in a sentimental mood, as I teared up when I read that. How joyous. An engagement is such a positive declaration of love and intent, a perfect thing to announce on a beautiful spring day. Congratulations and best wishes to all.

YAY!! Congratulations all around. But, like you said, a ceremony won't change anything. She's already family. The hubs and I felt married way before we tied the knot legally.

Oh what fun! Congratulations to the loving couple.

Spring is such a special time of year... so is summer, fall and winter. But right now, it is Spring.
