Fifteen years ago, she had a computer question so she called her oldest brother to ask for help. He had just finished up dinner on a first date with a girl (me!); he happily took the call and walked her through it. He hung up the phone and told me a little bit about his only sister, still in high school at the time. I met her soon thereafter and was blown away by how sweet she was AND how stunningly beautiful she was (and still is). I loved getting to know her fun-filled spirit back then and couldn’t be happier to call her my sister (-in-law if you want to be totally technical about it).
Fast forward to 3 years ago, she brought a guy to a family cookout and he met everyone in one fell swoop. Not only did he bring food to share, but he arrived at some ungodly hour to go fishing with her dad and her two brothers, having never met any of them before. Oh, and it was his birthday. And he was moving the Ohio the next day. Bonus points, right? They remained together through his time in Cleveland until he moved back last year. He popped the big question earlier this year at the beach where she grew up and we are oh-so-excited for them both!
Danielle and Dave, I’m so happy for the two of you and cannot wait to tear it up on the dance floor next June!
