My sister is engaged!
Couldn’t be happier for this pair. Still in shock my baby sis is getting hitched. Their relationship has been through the long haul, and truly tested time. It was perfect he popped the question in Hawaii last week –selfishly said bc I got to be there. Our whole family was snapping photos like crazy when the two stepped off the helicopter (yes helicopter in Hawaii, bachelor style. Logan doesn’t mess around). We made them re-enact the dropped knee over and over again so that we got the perfect shot, ha!
The two met their first week of freshman year of college, dated for two years, and then Logan went on a church mission for two years. While away, they wrote letters, sent packages but no phone calls, no visits. And at the end of that 24 months, Riley was there at the airport standing nervous/excited to greet him off the plane after their years apart. Logan is going to hate me for this - but I told the girl to date, I told her to hang with other guys (liveeee it up!) – but this girl only had eyes for one. She wasn’t sure if it was going to be awkward at the airport, or if he would have changed– did letters do/say enough? Well apparently so, because 4 months later they are fully engaged. Their hearts didn’t move, but only grew.
Feels like just yesterday Joel and I were in that phase. The best! Does time go faster as you get older? How has 3 years passed for Joel and I? I thought I was still 24? Wasn’t Riley still in high school? Well time does move so let the wedding planning begin! This weekend we are hitting up the LA bridal shops to get this glowing girl a dress.
