one hundred and nineteen: a letter for Jenna + one for David too

Last Friday my dearest friend Jenna became engaged to David. Friends, this was six years in the making so you can only imagine my excitement. I am bursting with happiness for the soon-to-be-bride and groom.

I am completely overjoyed! And admittedly thrilled to bust out my first Mazel Tov card, ha-ha. I am so glad the proposal went off without a hitch–I would have never heard the end of it if I blew it. Your man had plans!

You are so very special to me and to see you this tickled makes my heart swell. I couldn’t imagine anyone more deserving. I wish you and David all the happiness this life has to offer. And I look forward to celebrating your love! Congratulations on your engagement!

Nicely done! I guess we know she’s patient, wink.

Congratulations! I am so happy for you both! Thank you for letting me play the tiniest role in the proposal. I was so honored and thrilled to be part of such an unforgettable evening (even if it meant telling white lies). I look forward to watching your love grow. Best wishes and continued happiness!


P.S. I think its only right we celebrate the one year anniversary of your proposal (me too–for real this time). Same table but hold the rabbit. Should I make the reservation or will you?

    Awww, I love this. I know you’ve been waiting to send that card to David for a while ;-).

    Thank you for helping David pull off the most perfect proposal. It is such a great engagement story and everytime I tell it, I re-live the shock I was feeling at the time. We most definitely need to go there for a drink and/or dinner asap. Perhaps some cosmos on the rooftop?

    Xoxo to my most fabulous friend!
