Share It With You Sunday…Good News!

Today’s news is something that I’ve been hoping to share with you for a while now–I just wasn’t sure when it would be…but before I get to that, let me give you a little back ground story!

On Friday evening, our youngest son, Brad, came by.  He was on his way to Savannah to meet Jennifer and her daddy, who had been there doing some shopping earlier in the afternoon.  I heard him enter the combination to our safe, so I knew he was up to something.  He’d been keeping a “little something”  there–waiting for just the right moment. 

On his way out, he asked if he could borrow my camera.  He said he wanted to take Jennifer down to historic River Street, under the pretense of “taking photographs for mama’s blog”.  I gave him my camera, and he went on his way.  In my mind I was thinking, Jennifer’s going to be tired from shopping, and she is not going to want to go to River Street to take blog photographs for me!  (which I totally understand)  I was secretly hoping that she wouldn’t give Brad too hard of a time.

Brad took her out to Olive Garden for dinner.  He said she was quiet throughout dinner–she was probably thinking how much she wasn’t in the mood to go take photographs for me, and about the bedroom furniture that she’d been admiring earlier, but Brad had talked her out of buying. 

Following dinner, they headed down to River Street, explored some of the shops and sights, and took a few photos, which I will now share with you–because they are a part of the story…

I have no idea what this place is, but it’s beautiful.

I believe this is Savannah Sweets, a local candy shop.  Notice the cobblestone street in front of it.  River Street is famous for its cobblestone streets–and for the river, of course.

This is the night view of the river.

After taking a few photographs,  Brad finally got down to his business–the real reason he took Jennifer down to beautiful and romantic River Street–to ask her to become his wife…and

She said “YES”!

  5. Congratulations!!! Words can’t tell you how happy I am for Brad and Jennifer…and for you. I know you’ve been hoping and praying for this for a while. I’ve also had my fingers crossed. This joyous news has definitely put me in the Christmas spirit. God bless you all today and always!!!

  6. Oh, that made me cry! How incredibly sweet!
    The pictures are gorgeous!

  7. That is so sweet. Congratulations!!! It is a wonderful feeling when our children choose a mate that we approve of. 🙂
    The first picture looks familiar, but I’m not sure of what it is either. I’m thinking maybe a house that was in the movie The Garden of Good and Evil but don’t hold me to that. But it is so beautiful.

  8. What great news! Congrats to you! You get to be a MIL Mother-In-Law! What fun! As soon as you said he was keeping something in the safe, I knew where the story was going. But what a great story and so sweet of him!..

  9. No, it’s not the Mercer House in Savannah, but I know I know it. Maybe it’ll come to me later. Looks like one of the houses that is close to Forsythe Square. The mind really IS the first thing to go. LOL 😀

  10. Very romantic your son is. A wonderful way to remember such an important event.
    Congratulations to you too!
    I tired to add your button to my blog but I messed it up and it didn’t show up. I guess I don’t know how.
