She Said Yes

Last Thursday was a very exciting day for my family.
 
My big brother got ENGAGED!
 
 
After dating for a year and a half my brother Michael proposed to his now fiancee Melissa while on vacation in Napa Valley. They had been talking about getting engaged and even went ring shopping together so it wasn't a total surprise.
 
I had the honor of helping Michael choose the center stone for her ring and was a sounding board when discussing possible proposal ideas. Knowing when it would happen and not being able to say anything is a small form of torture. I couldn't have been more thrilled to receive the call Thursday night that she had said yes and it was official. Not only will I be getting a wonderful sister-in-law who I really get along with but Hunter will be getting a new Aunt who has already been in his life since he was born.
 
Oh and because most girls care about what the ring looks like, my brother did a fantastic job, the ring has a yellow diamond in the center and is surrounded by a double halo of smaller white diamonds and small white diamonds on the band. It's very unique and vintage looking which is exactly what Melissa wanted.
 
Congratulations to the happy couple!

so cute!! that's awesome and such a romantic place to propose! The couple behind us at our restaurant in Napa two weeks ago had just gotten engaged, and "eavesdropping" on their conversation brought me back to the day I got engaged...such an exciting time! Congrats to the happy couple!
