Happy News...My Eldest Daughter Is Engaged!!!

My daughter and her boyfriend at Christmastime...

 
...and now, they're getting married!!

My eldest daughter and her boyfriend have had a fairy-tale romance...

...meeting as young teens, dating, and taking some time apart in college...

...then coming together again after they realized that they were truly each other's one-and-only.

And even though, in many ways, I've felt like they were already married for some time, now...

...I was unprepared for the raw emotion that I felt on Saturday...

...when she burst into my bedroom, waking me, in order to share her happy news!!

At this very moment, while thinking of their happiness, my joy is boundless...

...and even the practical, maternal side of me is at peace...

...knowing how safe she is with him, and how very much he loves her.

So...no felting projects today...

...just me, shouting from the rooftops that my baby will be a bride! :)
