Engagement of the Littlest

My littlest sister is engaged! I learned about this extraordinary turn of events this morning when I opened my e-mail. There was, in my inbox, a message entitled “BIG F***ING NEWS!” No kidding!

Littlest wrote, “He asked and I said yes.”

When I talked with my mom this morning (there was no way that Littlest would have been awake at 8:00 a.m. on a Sunday), she happily confirmed the news. Littlest wanted to drive over to mom and dad’s on Friday night to tell them the news in person but, as everyone knows, the snow is playing havoc with roads and lane ways and the best laid plans and Littlest couldn’t even get out of her driveway. My dad was out when Littlest called and, when he got home, mom gave him the message to call his youngest daughter. “Is it good or BAD?” he asked. Funny guy.

DP and I talked with Littlest this evening. She and her fiancé and are talking about a wedding in the summer of 2009. Something informal and outdoorsy. For this, the wedding of the Littlest, I will buy a new bottle of OFF and a plane ticket home from Barcelona.

Congratulations, sweetie!
