We got some great news over the weekend. My little sister got engaged. :)
She and her boyfriend were supposed to come up for the Thanksgiving weekend but finances and schedules didn't permit. So when he gave her a note inviting her to a special dinner and walk, she assumed he was just trying to cheer her up. They had a lovely romantic dinner and then took a walk in their favourite park, where he proposed.
The rough plan for the wedding is for late summer, early fall, which is generally a good time for weddings. It might be in Toronto, where they live, or it might be in Edmonton, where his family lives.
I'm very happy for her but my practical side immediately noticed that this puts our Disney plans in jeopardy. We had planned to take Alex next fall and have been saving up to make it happen. A trip for the family out to Edmonton, including flights and hotels (and wedding clothes), will likely wipe out those savings. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a Toronto wedding instead.
