in my top 10.

You know when you love someone so much, that when they are happy, so are you?  

Last night, my cousin (who just happens to be one of my best friends) got engaged to her boyfriend, Brad.

I have been in on the plan for awhile now and it has been KILLING me not being able to say anything.  None of my family or our mutual friends knew, and so many people have asked…”so, when do you think they will get married?”….”how are they doing….”

It was torture!

But, Brad pulled off a seriously well-thought out plan and Janelle was completely surprised.  Well done, Brad!

Last night, after Brad proposed, Brad tricked her into going to their special restaurant and we were there!  She was totally excited.  

It was in my “top 10” nights.  Because I adore her.  I adore Brad.  I couldn’t be happier.

And I think, when you see two people getting married and so in love….it reminds you of how blessed you are to have found a partner.  A soul mate.  A spouse.  

What a gift.
