Aunt Rissa is ENGAGED!

So I know it happened a couple weeks or so ago, but I'm still just as excited as I was then to say that my sweet, funny, creative, gorgeous sister is ENGAGED!!!  I am SO happy for her!  Nathan and Marissa have been together for 4 years now and I think we all knew from the beginning that this was it for them.  Look how cute they were in the beginning...

Fast-forward 4 years to a train station in OKC.  Nathan took Marissa there for her to help him film a school project where he completely surprised her and popped the question!  He got the whole thing on video and let me just tell you, absolutely precious.  I love that we got to watch her reaction and the excitement between the two of them.  What a special video that they will cherish forever!  Good job Nate!

I thought I was going to have to wait to see Marissa in person until sometime in December, but due to some crazy travel complications (another post)...I got to see her on Thanksgiving!!!  We talked all things wedding and even got Gran's wedding dress out!!

Wedding planning is so much fun and I can't wait for all the exciting events the next several months will bring.  But more importantly, I am so thrilled and thankful that my sister has found the love of her life and they are preparing to take the next step of marriage together.  Congratulations to Aunt Marissa and Uncle Nathan (I feel like I can say that now!) on your engagement!!!
