Engaged! and Stamp Simply Celebrates! Day Five

I am so happy to announce that my oldest son, Joshua, and his girlfriend Jennifer, were engaged last night! My husband and I (our entire family, in fact) are so pleased and excited! Picture this-- Josh brought Jen down to the state park, hiking though the trees and snow flurries (around 15 degrees in my estimate), to the beach, where they came upon burning candles arranged in the shape of a large heart. Here's a picture of the two of them taken after the big question was asked and answered! Congratulations Josh and Jen!
