Short and sweet! I have two (two!) engaged sons, one planning a wedding for summer 2010 and the other for summer 2011. I am so proud, excited, and thankful that both of my boys have reached this milestone in life with happiness and confidence, each having found a truly lovely young woman to love, each of whom we also already love and eagerly welcome into our family.
To say that I am grateful to have this opportunity to see and share in their happiness is a serious understatement. In fact, I would say the 'goose-bump-feeling' must be close to pure bliss. :-)
We did ask that they chose a date to be married that is not smack in the middle of our garlic-harvesting season, but I don't know what other input and options we, as parents of the grooms, will have. Much is still to be determined, and we'll all enjoy the planning and the process!
