A Perfect Weekend


Some things are worth waiting for... We are so happy to share the news that JJ & Honey became engaged this weekend. I told them I would wait for them to post it on their various posting spots and I've tried really hard to be patient the past 48 hours.

The ring is beautiful, almost as beautiful as Honey --- no actually, she outshines it completely. And JJ is standing just a tad taller, I believe. We had a whirlwind for a few days, doing our best to help JJ surprise Honey. I think it worked. We went to a wonderfully romantic event last Friday night and then Saturday was the big day. She, however, thought DJ and I were completely absorbed with our household chores and I'm sure she wondered a time or two why we weren't interested in spending the afternoon with the two of them... I think she's forgiven us now.... DJ and I are so relieved we were able to pull off the surprise of having her parents here (from her home town a few hours away) to greet her as they walked in to 'tell us' the news. Too much fun ~ it's just too much fun!


Dear Honey & JJ,
We're praying God's richest blessings will always be with you.
We love you! Grace & DJ

OK...your absence is forgiven. Congratulations. Sort of makes my "book giveaway" pale in comparison.

Aloha Grace,
I just wanted to say hello and I enjoyed reading about your sons engagement, they make a beautiful couple, brings back memories of when my son and daughter in law announced theirs, now they have 3 beautiful boys who we adore. I couldn't help but see Bruddah Iz (Israel) on your playlist.
We miss him alot here in Hawaii but his songs as well as memories of him are still alive in our hearts. I enjoyed my visit to your blog today.

Isn't that just the most fun time! Watching our grown up children make grown up decisions is like a whole new world - I love that! Congratulations on a beautiful new daughter-in-law to be. Blessings, marlene

No dates set yet. Maybe we can have a Blogland shower.... Wouldn't that be a fun idea?? We could all invest in webcams or such. :)
