Once upon a time, not so long ago, Sarah, one of the members of our ‘Book Club’ got engaged! The rest of us girls were all so excited we arranged to meet up a week later to hear all about the proposal and see the ring. She’s the first one in the group to get engaged (two of us are already married) which makes two major life events in the group this year – one of the group is expecting her first baby in November.
We met up at a local pub, ordered drinks and food and chatted about the proposal, plans for the wedding and generally got very excited about the upcoming event. I think we probably overwhelmed Sarah with our questions. Having already gotten engaged and being married for almost 8 years, I have been to a few weddings and planned my own so know all the things you have to think about. Much to my annoyance, when I was planning my wedding Pinterest didn’t exist. At a young 23 years old, I didn’t really put a huge deal of thought into it, and that was probably for the best as we were on a tight budget. But if I could do it all again I would. There are so many details I’d love to change and add. It’s so exciting that Sarah has all of this ahead of her.
All of us were über excited and after we’d eaten we went outside, minus one of the group who’d had to leave for a late shift at her job, and took a some photos of Sarah and the beautiful ring she now has on her hand.
The coming months are going to be tremendously exciting with a baby and a wedding. Growing up is amazing and I’m so pleased I get to do it with this lovely bunch of ladies!
