LOVE

Huge hugs and congratulations to my baby brother, Dustin and his amazing and wonderful girlfriend Maria! They went to Disneyland over the Christmas Holiday. Once he could get her in front of Cinderella's Castle, he bent down on one knee, produced a stunning engagement ring and asked her to be his wife! After her shock wore off, she accepted Dustin's proposal, and right there in the Magic Kingdom (a personal family favorite) - a new future was born!


I'm so proud and happy for you both! Being big sis - I got a call shortly after from them, where Dustin said "I'm ENGAGED!!!! And I'm standing in line for Pirates of the Carribean so I can't talk long!" I cracked up...if you knew my family - and our long term love affair with the House O' Mouse - you would know how apropos this was.

Anyway, they're just too cute and the picture at the very top was taken shortly after their engagement at a celebration dinner - LOVE IT!
