Ali's getting married!
I've been accused on occasion of burying the lead, so there... I said it!
After a bit of a whirlwind romance with a guy she's technically known for.ever, he played his guitars at the coffee shop one night last week, closed by singing a song he'd written for her, and then popped the question!
It wasn't a complete surprise to me -- Ali told me that they were planning to get married (this just made it official) and I gave her/them my grandmother's ring -- but it's still somewhat... I don't know... everything.
I've never seen her happier.
Save the date: June 15th.
Best wishes to Ali!! And Congratulations to a (smart) young man who will so be your SON IN LAW!! Now the fun begins!

Congrats. Best wishes to Ali and her special fellow. With the blood sugar. I wouldn't worry to much as long as you are able to continue losing weight and exercises. Though it's important to listen to your Doctor.

Best wishes to everyone involved! June can be a fickle month, weatherwise. You can knit her a lovely lacy shawl, and she could end up needing your St. Brigid. Go for the shawl, though :-)
