Words just cannot express how excited I am for these two!! Alex is one of my best friends, my old roomie, my bridesmaid, and probably the kindest heart I know! I am very blessed to have her as a friend and am so so so excited to share in the excitement….because my dear sweet friend is finally ENGAGED! Alex has found her match in Rob (yes, both of our men are Rob….that’s not confusing or anything!) because he loves her like no other!
Many months ago Alex and I casually checked out a few stores to look at some bling. Knowing what she loved, we joked that whenever he was ready to go Rob should just call me. I almost drove my shopping cart into a store display when my phone buzzed with a text from Rob a few months later telling me that he was ready to head to the jewelry store. I think I was more giddy with excitement as I dodged my friend to make the covert operation. In fact, I was a pretty crappy friend – avoiding her like the plague with the excuse of being busy because I was so worried I would accidentally spill the beans or text her instead of Rob.
We’d been planning their annual Christmas Card session for a while, and originally planned for Rob to pop the question during it. Rob changed his mind and decided on something more private, and had me fooled that it wasn’t happening just yet. We trekked out to Rob’s hometown, Edenton, for their session. Imagine my surprise when about an hour after we got back into town I got a call from Alex, hysterically crying, to tell me that she was engaged. I’m pretty sure most of us still haven’t stopped smiling! They make another trip BACK to my house so I could get the “after” picture. CONGRATS you two, can’t wait for the big day!!!
And who can forget the “after” picture –
