BIG NEWS

Happy Saturday and Memorial Day Weekend.

In other news ..

you should have seen my face when our friend asked if we were excited for our daughter’s wedding? I must have looked like Elliott when the toast pops out of the toaster.

I looked at our friend. Richard, like what are you talking about and I realized …

engagements lead to marriage.

Our baby girl is getting married. This was her at auntie Tricia’s wedding.

ENGAGEMENT NEWS

Our daughter, Ashley, got engaged on a Sunday afternoon to an amazing young man named Daniel.

We affectionately refer to him as Dan 2.0 because our daughter’s uncle *my brother) Dan did not like the name old Dan.

This is what I shared on my Facebook page.

So this just happened…

5-ish 💕🌸 years ago Rod and I went to Ireland to celebrate paying off our SBA loan. We Facetime’d Ash and said you must meet a boy from Dublin ( the Irish accent).

Well, she did meet a boy from Dublin ..OHIO. It turns out he grew up 5 exits from his future bride. And years later after proms and college graduations, they met in Denver on a Sunday afternoon for coffee after she had canceled their first date like four times (because of audit season).

Ironically, her Uncle Dan (Dan 1.0) canceled his first date with his now-wife because of a racquetball tournament.

When Ashley finally had a free morning for coffee she texted this new boy.

He said yes.

What she didn’t know was that he was in Vail that weekend with college friends. He left Vail in the early morning, with fresh powder in his rearview mirror, to meet his now future bride.

I just love this story.

Do you know how I met my husband( Ashley’s dad)?

At a party, with a keg in the family room and a pizza box in a broken window in the kitchen.

I introduced myself and said my last name was beer spelled backward.
