December 5, 2014 A family engagement

The other night night I awoke to a text message.

No emergency… my brother in-law had proposed, a day earlier than he’d planned, to his girlfriend Ashley.

(& she said YES! Phew!)

I sent back a dreary, happy, congratulations reply and went back to bed laughing about how he couldn’t wait one more day, and wondering about all the hints he’d likely dropped that had her on to him.

The next day proved to be a beautiful, sunny one, and as I laughed to myself about all this extra time they’d have on their hands, (since he’d proposed a night earlier than planned) I thought… maybe I can get them out for some engagement photos?!

That was a pretty great idea.

It was cold, but Ryan and Ashley are a fun and funny couple, and both were still in that super happy, just engaged, omg zone… so it was a really good time. I honestly can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard…on the ground…in the road.

Yep.

Congrats again, you two! ♥
