Welp, it looks like Elle’s best-laid efforts to wait until “later” in life to get married have been thwarted.
…because these two are getting hitched:
And she looks pretty sad about it, right?
–There is a good story that goes with this engagement including Dave’s sneaky maneuvering to meet up with Carson en route home from China for the “interview,” and some happy surprises.
–Despite Carson’s best-laid efforts, the ring was too small so Elle is going around wearing it proudly on her pinky for now.
–Lucy about died of happiness when Claire and I woke her up in all our excitement after the engagement (it was late but she has been anxiously anticipating/hoping for this for a long time):
(She calls him “Larson” mixing his nickname and his real name)
–My cheeks are still hurting from smiling and there is SO much to say but for now, I’ll just say we’re all pretty excited.
