What are you looking forward to?
Ummm, what a perfect question for today. What a perfect way to reflect on what I just did. Fun fact: no one I know knows about Lovely & Alive. I’d like to keep it that way for a while too, because I am going to write about my baby sister’s future wedding. THAT’S what I’m looking forward to.
Gayle doesn’t even know she about to become engaged. I mean that’s the assumption of where her relationship is going, but she doesn’t know that her future husband to be just called me to ask for engagement ring shopping help.
Most men would like to pick one out by themselves. It’s a very intimate shopping trip- the one ring (to rule them all….). I think it humbles a man to ask for help. It also illustrates that the future hubby to be is sensitive to the fact that Gayle is, not only my sister, but my very best of best of friends. He knew I would like to be included in this (I also know what she loves and loathes). Being kept out of the loop drives me crazy and makes me feel unimportant, and I love that this is a small way he is respecting my relationship with her. That is why I am so so so looking forward to them being engaged AND married.
* fun fact: Gayle, Patrick and I have been friends for 4 or 5 years. They didn’t start dating until 2014. She tricked me. Every guy she’s liked, I haven’t known. Therefore I automatically didn’t like them. Patrick I couldn’t not like. I already knew he was a great guy (albeit sometimes when they get together it’s a little annoying- they are both so funny). I am so happy that they have such a solid friendship- it’s made the communication so much easier.
* freakin’ freaky fact: look out for an engagement soon and a wedding within the year. SLIGHT TYPE A FREAK OUT MOMENT HERE.
