Congress passed the repeal of DADT with a sizable majority.
And one of my best friends, Anne, got engaged last night.
This makes 3 friends in the last year who have said yes to love.
All 3 have been divorced, 2 are in their 50's, one is in her 30's. So much for that study telling women if you're not married by the time you're 35 you can forget about it.
GG's sister Tini, is one of the three. We first met Nirmal at our annual 4th of July party. They both came early and worked like fiends helping us set up in the sweltering heat. We knew he was a keeper. He made 3 store runs. And helped do the dishes. It was love at first store run for us.
Now they will be married in India on February 9th, 2011 at 11:00am. An auspicious day and time.
We have just had a visit from our newly engaged couple. Anne's a green eyed redhead who now sports a deep green emerald ring. But their evident happiness sparkles even brighter.
I feel so lucky to live in a world where so many wonderful things can happen in a day.
Really makes me want to get up in the morning and see what tomorrow will bring.
