Sara . . . Sara . . . Smile

There's someone very special I really must introduce:

Meet Sara!


She is engaged to my son Cory and they will be getting married in January.

We are so excited.

She is so darling and brings out all the best qualities in my son (and that certainly makes a mama happy!)

It's really fun thank you to youtube.com, you can view their proposal right here online.

Cory proposed at the Jon Schmidt concert at Thanksgiving Point. Jon was introducing his latest greatest hit, "Love Story Meet Love Story" from his new album "Bonus Tracks", and called Cory down out of the audience to come make an announcement, and finished by dedicating the song to Cory & Sara.

Little did we know that Cory had made arrangements with Jon Schmidt in advance (he actually got to speak with him . . . sigh . . . I'm so impressed . . . thank you Jon!) and they had it all planned out, what a perfect song for a proposal. Once again, I am a lucky mom, I got to be present at another wedding proposal, I'm really liking this! I think it should be a family tradition :)

Sara will fit into our family perfectly - she likes ballroom dancing, reading and hiking! She is a busy student, working and now planning a wedding. In fact she reminds me a lot of the lyrics to one of my favorite songs about a Sara - "It's you and me forever - Sara Smile!"


We love you Sara!

What fun!! And now you get to have two weddings in one year's time!! I loved the proposal. She looked pretty excited--didn't even hesitate for a second. :-)

I am so glad I looked at your blog this morning. It hadn't registered on my blog that you had written yet, and since it had been awhile I decided to check up on you and write a note to see if you were okay. And this is what I found!! Thanks for sharing the fun.
