It’s Sunday night we are getting ready to go out to dinner.
We are late for our reservation.
I am not sure what TB is doing but he and MB are messing around in the bedroom.
Then he comes out to get me and leads me into our bedroom.
He sits me down.
MB is there. Indy is there. He gets down on one knee.
It was the moment. I won’t put the words he said here but I will say that they were just perfect and my eyes are tearing up as I think about it.
It was about our family. It was about us. It was about what we have created here together – our lives.
There were tears from all of us. There were smiles from all of us. It was a moment for just the 2 of us but also a moment for just the 3 of us.
I remember MB saying to me “Mom, I am so happy and excited but I feel like I want to cry”…yep babe that is the emotion flowing through.
A moment of true love…and I sit here thinking back over it and MB were her wide eyes- what a wonderful thing for Madison to witness, to learn what she deserves to find someday in life.
And then there was the little blue box….I still can’t believe it. It’s just perfect. As my bestie put it…so “sweet home Alabama”. Timeless. Forever.
We are the luckiest girls in the world…and while we have been a family for a while now…we are finally making it OFFICIAL!
