If You Like It Then You Better Put a Ring On It (Day 2)

My Jingle is: Because a post isn't a post without a picture. I'll sing it for you some day if you'd like.

Well, either Beyonce gave David some advice before her hit song came out or my dad threatened David with that shotgun of his, but either way, two years ago today David got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. And, by golly, I sure am glad that he did. Two days later we got on a plane for California, 8 months later we were married, 9 months after that Olivia was born, and 6 1/2 months later we are down on the ground each night showing her how to use her arms to crawl. Life comes at you fast and I'm grateful that the big ol' rock on my finger doesn't get in the way of me catching it!

Thank you Dave for asking my daughter to marry you. Thank you for moving to CA (closer to us in AZ.) AND thank you both for giving us the most precious grandbaby any grandparent could ask for. Life is good, God is good and we all have so much to be thankful for.

Thank you David for picking such a wonderful wife! I love you Amanda and I'm so glad you married my brother and I have you for a sister. Wait - I just realized that all my sisters are blond.... I'm the odd one out in the group!
