Last night I finally heard the news that I had been anticipating for a few weeks. My brother proposed to his girlfriend, she said yes, and there will be a wedding!

As the big sister, and one who is slow to appreciate change, I wondered how I would feel when this happened. Well here's how I feel: I am completely excited and happy for the two of them. I am looking forward to getting to know his fiance better over the years. I will admit that it is hard for me to recognize that he is actually old enough to be getting married, but I will be praying for them as they begin a new, exciting phase of life.

Congratulations to my brother and future sister-in-law!

He turns 22 next month and they are getting married in May. I was the same age, but he seems younger to me.

now you will have more girls in the family to do girl things with, hope you are able to have that kind of relationship with her :)
