So Very Excited!

As I was laying in bed last night, I suddenly realized that I have not yet blogged about something very exciting in my life!

Our wonderful friends Jen and Brett recently got engaged in November (see this blog). We were both so excited for them and couldn't have been more elated to attend their wedding in August. Then, over the Christmas holiday, I received a beautiful shadow box frame with pictures of Jen and me on my wedding day, with a beautiful note that read: "It was an honor to be your bridesmaid! Now it's time to return the favor! Will you be my Matron of Honor?" Of course, I was beyond excited to even be a part of her wedding, let alone to be asked to be her Matron of Honor.

I could blog all about how wonderful a friend Jen is and how much I love her (or you can read this). Since I have already shared with everyone how special she is to me, I thought I would instead write about Jen and Brett.

Let's start at the beginning. Jen and Brett met during their senior year at UC Irvine. While they both had been involved in their respective fraternities (Jen, a Tri Delta and Brett, a Sigma Pi), they hadn't really crossed paths in a significant way until Halloween of their senior years. They endured many life changes during their relationship: graduating college, beginning full-time work, Jen starting and completing a master's program, moving from Irvine to Long Beach and then finally to Hermosa Beach. And through all their significant life changes, their relationship strengthened and grew. It is obvious from anyone who is around them, how incredibly much they love each other and it seemed only fitting that Brett proposed to her five years later, to the day, on Halloween Night.

Mr. Howard and I couldn't be more excited to share their special day with them and of course, I feel blessed to be a part of their wedding.
