I hear wedding bells...

My little sister...she's engaged!

I love her engagement story because it is so real and a true testament to the strength of their relationship. Here we go...

Rewind about a month to an adorable proposal. David takes my sister to her favorite spot ever on the camp property where she spent many of her summers. He gives her a ring he picked out/styled, proposes and takes her out to a fabulous dinner.  Pause...she says no.  We were all shocked, but my sister knew she wasn't ready (she's so mature like that). She had just gone through a little shake up after some of her potential plans fell through so she decided to figure things out with herself before she could be wife material. Makes so much sense right? So David patiently waited (like any man in love should) and last night my sister rushes over to his place to tell him she is ready to be his wife. He then proposes on the spot. I love this. They are wise beyond their years and will have a wonderful marriage!
Here's a picture of my sister (maid of honor) at my wedding two years ago. I can't believe that soon this will be her! *tear*













The next time Alyssa is walking down the aisle it will be her as the bride. Oh my goodness.
Now I get to wedding plan again! I'm off to create a new board on Pinterest filled with wedding ideas and inspiration for my sister.
Congrats Sissa :)

What a great story! I can't imagine saying no though! But I suppose that if you truly feel you aren't ready then that's what the right thing to do is. That's great that they are now engaged though! What a great guy to wait for her :)
