A BIG congratulations to my brother, Jon, and his fiancé Lauren Travis. They got engaged the same day we went to the Stock Show (later that night). We were all there: my parents, brother, her parents, sisters, brother-in-law, and of course us. We love her family, by the way! We enjoyed a delicious meal together and then Jon suggested some music. This was all planned ahead of time, but Jon did a good job of making it look spontaneous, and she had no clue! Different people sang some of Lauren's favorite songs while Jon played the guitar. Then Jon sang a song he had written about him and Lauren and proposed at the end!!! Many tears were shed, it was beautiful. We are thrilled because they are going to tie the knot before we leave for Africa in June! What a special night and we felt so blessed to be a part of it.
