Cameron flew back to California on New Year's day. Before he came we learned that he had a pretty serious girlfriend out there. And it just so happened that she was from Maine(small world right?). We knew things were going somewhere because he actually talked to us about her(he never talked about his social life with us as a teenager), he didn't go out with friends, and snap chatted her the whole time. On the two hour drive to the airport, hubby and I talked about what his plans were for the future. He and this girl remind us of hubby and I 21 years ago... they are almost the exact same ages, he's in the military, he will be transferred in the summer, and they are serious about each other. We told him all about us back then and said we totally understand if he elopes(we did, we were far from family, just like he is), but if he can give us notice, we would really like to be there. And I made sure I told him that he has to take some pictures of the day... I don't have any and that is my only regret.
Well, while hubby and I were at the gym this afternoon(did a 10k btw on the treadmill and I'm paying for it now in pain) I got a text from him...."Me and Kellsea are getting married". He also snap chatted me a pic of her ring...it's almost like the one above.
So my oldest baby is engaged!!! Wow. I'm really feeling old. Especially when hubby says to me that I could be a grandma in the near future.
Seriously though, I am over the moon happy for him. I'm so happy that he is happy. That is what I want most for my kids.
We may be taking a road trip to California soon. I'll keep you posted.
