First: My son met and brought home a beautiful young lady who instantly blended into the family!!! In February they announced they were expecting their first child and they planned to get married. While the announcements were sudden and quite the surprise; I was extremely happy for my son and couldn't wait to be a mother-in-law and grandma!!!
Second: May 14th my son and his girl married. It was a sweetly simple ceremony with family and a friends at Englewood Friends Church. YEAH!!!! I finally have a daughter...lol
