I have some news. It was my blog's one year birthday on February 26th, last last Saturday, and I completely forget about it. So, happy late birthday to my blog.

On a more dramatic note, this Saturday brought a bit of a surprise. It all began at 11pm, when I was thoughtlessly getting ready to hit the hay [we can't afford beds]. Sudddenly, I heard a subtle ding. A seemingly innocent text? I flippantly thought so too. Boy was I mistaken. The flurry of excitement that ensued upon reading of the text, was received with questioning looks from my niece [her and I were having a sleepover], who wondered what kind of news could send me into a spiral of gleeful frolic all over the room.
The text was from one of my best friends growing up; we both managed to stay in contact even though I had moved. It read: "I'M ENGAGED!"

And just like that, she's all grown up now.
But get this. She asked a follow up question, a question that we might have discussed back when we were 12 or something, but she never forgot it. It read: "Will you be my maid of honor?" How special. I am so honored.

Oksana. I am extremely happy for you. I wish you both abundant blessings from the bottom of my heart. And I know you'll make an awesome bride. I can't wait till your special day! And I'll be praying for you guys.



  1. Oh yay! Congrats to her! Enjoy being the maid of honor! And you know where to send her for invites, haha :)

  2. oh this is a big responsibility. you should probably start practicing your bouquet holding and graceful walking now.

  3. Kae, will you be giving maid-of-honor lessons by any chance?

  4. You gave me a heart attack!!! I thought for some reason you were talking about Irina..

  5. hahaha, that's great
    I'm pretty sure that would give Irina a heart attack as well..hahah
