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! :)

Heather, this post literally brought tears to my eyes! Your kind words mean more to us than you know. I have been so blessed to not only be a part of Alan's life, but your family's life as well. I am so excited to be a part of your family and for you to be my SIL!!! Our relationship (you and I) has been so natural from early on. I think we are so much alike, which is a good thing in my opinion:) and I have always felt such ease around you. Obvioulsly I am excited about all of the other in-laws as well, but this is "your" blog...:) I also can't wait to be "Aunt Amanda" for real. She brings so much joy to A and I. We had so much fun with her yesterday and look forward to spending as much time with her as possible. I think she is really starting to recognize us, which makes me so happy! I love you all and thank you for being you.
