wedding bells

Surprise! My father-in-law Dan is engaged! Yes, it happened the first weekend in February, Dan purposed to Bonnie on top of a cliff in Garden of the gods.

We first met Bonnie in January when she flew out here from her home state of Oregon (yes, she lives out of state, and yes they were only dating for a few months). I really like her, I think she is sweet, funny, genuine and she even watched Maya for us so Brett and I could go out on a date.

It is slightly strange that it has happened so fast but I do understand why in many ways. They are both older and are more certain of what they want, neither of them want to waste time dating someone they don't believe they could marry and the long distance relationship is hard and expensive. I am really happy for Dan, he is just glowing and I am just happy he won't be alone for the rest of his life.

Fran will not be forgotten or replaced...... no one is like her. I hope that this new transition in our family life goes well, we welcome Bonnie with open arms. I am looking forward to having a grandmother near for Maya.

The wedding date is set for April 18th in Portland, Oregon. We will be going there for the weekend.

  1. Wow! This is like Micki's FIL. He was re-married within a year. I think when you have a good marriage, you miss that companionship. I'm happy for him.


I love hearing from you, it always makes my day!
