Friday, May 21, 2010, will always be a special day for our family! My older brother, Alan, FINALLY proposed to his girlfriend, MY future SIL and Hadlea's Aunt, Amanda! I know I have told stories before about how I never wanted a sister growing up! I never wanted to share a bedroom, bathroom or clothes! Ha! But the older I get, the more and more I wish I would have had a sister. Someone that would have always been there to share ideas, thoughts, and more than anything, memories! If I could go back and choose someone to be by sister, I would have definitely chosen someone exactly like Amanda! She is the most genuine person I have ever met. She is caring, has the biggest heart you can possibly imagine and loves Hadlea like she were her own! My brothers are two of the most important people in my life. Their happiness is way more important to me than my own happiness. If they are ever having an issue or are unhappy, I am unhappy. To see Alan and Amanda together makes my heart swell with pride. To get to be apart of their love is something I will treasure forever! If anything ever happens to Justin and I, Hadlea will go to live with them and I could have never chosen two people to love my daughter more than them!
Alan and Amanda...Congratulations on your engagement. You truly will never know how much you both mean to Justin, Hadlea and I! Thank you for letting us be a part of your relationship. We are definitely better people for knowing you both. Thank you for loving Hadlea like she were your own. I know someday she will be spoiled beyond belief by the two of you and to know this, makes me smile...although that might change when it happens! :) We love you so much...and we cannot wait for the wedding...and babies!
After the proposal...Amanda had been laying out by the pool when it happened! Leave it to Alan to do it when she least expects it! :)
