A Ring!!.....Part Two

Thankful Thursday ....and about that ring?!?! That was given to my beautiful daughter last week (yes, the very same week that my son left...goodness!) by her boyfriend....who is a "real keeper"!! That's right, I'm soon to be a mother-in-law! Like I said, it was quite the week last week.

It was about two months ago that Em's boyfriend asked us out for breakfast.....interesting, for sure, but we rarely turn down free meals! But it was more than just a meal....he wanted our permission to propose! After quieting Dad's "WOO HOO...Take her - she's yours!!" (just kidding), we talked for quite awhile. They have been dating for just about one year, and I certainly cannot say I was completely surprised....nevertheless, what a moment in a mom's life!!

We didn't press for details about the proposal but have been quietly (well, sorta) waiting for the big event. I was sure it would be Valentine's Day - but, no, the boyfriend had all his wisdom teeth pulled that weekend! But apparently, he and Jordan were in "cohoots" that right after her brother left would be a good time for Em.....she did, indeed, struggle with her brother's leaving! And, well.....the rest is history.

Dad and I are very happy....and proud to be able to (soon) call Tony our son-in-law! I had hoped to share a photo with all of you but it is not working out this morning - I will as soon as I have one, though!
