Last night, her dear, sweet
He surprised her by showing up at her work (The Growing Room), and getting down on one knee right as she was locking up. He had arranged a couple of people to be there to document, and so there were two photographers and a videographer. (All people we know/go to church with.) I'm not sure exactly what he said to her, or how nervous he might have been, but I know Megan was shocked and thrilled that this was happening. She obviously said YES, and then excitedly told him he needed to hurry up and actually put that ring on her finger! :) The "paparazzi" spent a few minutes afterwards congratulating them with hugs and kisses and lots of smiles, and then Meg and Bo headed off. (Next six photos all taken by Jennifer Barineau.)

We all had a wonderful time eating and talking and hanging out together. Before our food arrived however, Jeff and I coordinated the taking of take lots of family portraits with the newly engaged couple, and they all came out pretty great. (Here are a few.)
She is of course ready to start planning already, and I'm quite sure we will the second they get back from the cruise this weekend. (She is going with her future family for her future brother-in-law's high school graduation present.) I'm sure there will be new Pinterest boards popping up, as well as three-ring binders with clippings and photos, and maybe even a real-life bulletin board at the house to organize and plan all of the thoughts and ideas. And I for one am actually excited about it too!
I'm so happy for my baby sister. She is a real grown up now, I'm aware of that, but she'll always be my "Little." I love her with all my heart, and I'm so excited for her and Bo - not only for the next year of engagement and planning - but for the rest of their sweet little lives together. I know they love each other, and will respect and care for each other. I thank God that he has placed a Godly man in my sister's life to provide for her, love her and protect her!
I love both of you so so so very much. And I'm so excited for this next part or your relationship journey. I'm also excited to be standing up there with you and be a part of your special day!!!
Love and happy wishes to everyone! :)
