Exciting News!

Jim and Cheryl just called tonight (Wed. July 16th) so Jim could ask for Dad’s approval and blessing to marry Cheryl. In the morning they leave for Salt Lake City to attend Jim’s brother’s wedding.

They already purchased their rings last Saturday, have been considering the date for their wedding (possibly either Sat. Oct. 11th or Sat. Oct. 25th), have looked at wedding dresses online (Cheryl will try on dresses in Utah this weekend), and started their invitation list. They are planning on being married in the LA Temple followed by a reception in a courtyard outside their stake center.

In the new order of things, however, they’re not engaged until Jim has the ring from the jeweler to give to Cheryl and formally proposes to her. All of these events started snowballing last week. We’ll have to get the details from Cheryl later.

I’ll be glad when they’re “formally” engaged so the whole family can know the exciting news.
