Congratulations are in order for another college friend, Kristen R. Her boyfriend proposed at their New Year’s Eve housewarming party, on the stroke of midnight. Apparently he had been planning the moment for quite a while, and almost everyone in attendance at the party knew it was coming (thus, she was able to send me some hilarious photos of their engagement).
In any case, congratulations Kristen! I could totally embarrass her by posting a photo that is five years old, but I will refrain. Sort of.
This seems like the sort of thing that comes in threes – but I think Darius & Ellen each count separately, since I don’t think anybody else I know from college (and am still in touch with) is getting engaged anytime soon.
