I can’t believe it’s already been almost 3 months since Frank proposed and a little over a year (ok, by a day) until we say the big, “I Do!”  I feel so blessed to have found such a wonderful man who wants to be with me and my boys forever!  The amount of support and congratulations that were extended to us via Facebook and this blog was overwhelmingly touching.  There are so many who are following us on this new journey in our lives and it is so awesome!

Over the holidays, one of our dear friends and family members sent the kids some Christmas gifts.  In the package was not only the Christmas gifts for the kids, but an engagement gift for us.  I had never received an engagement gift before.  It was a beautiful picture frame that said “We’re Engaged!”  What a great idea for an Engagement gift!

At Christmas, my sister (and bridesmaid) gave us an Engagement gift too.  It included a book filled with gorgeous wedding themes and  ideas and my wedding garter!  Now I have my “Something Blue” for the wedding.  On to figure my “Something Old,” “Something New,” and “Something Borrowed.”

A big thank you goes to both Sarah & Andy and Amber & Aaron for these precious Engagement gifts!
