Fast forward to November 21, 2015 and she writes “I knew the moment I saw you four years ago. And now we have forever.”
A month ago they were two young adults, finding their way in the world as young professionals. They defined themselves as a daughter and a son, as Jeff’s sister and as Jimmy and Steven’s brother, as Conner’s aunt and Judah’s, Xander’s and Maddie’s uncle, as Alex’s girlfriend and Kayla’s boyfriend.
Now that is all eclipsed by “as an engaged couple.”
The planning has begun and their lives are now in the best kind of transition.
They traveled to our home for the Thanksgiving holiday and this proud mom, who is a photographer, but not necessarily a portrait photographer, was more than willing to attempt their engagement photos with some of our favorite DC memorials as backdrops.
We couldn’t be happier to be adding another beautiful, intelligent and genuinely kind daughter-in-law to the two we already have in our family. I may have only given birth to sons but I’m no longer going to be outnumbered…the score is finally even!
