My sister-in-law Sarah is celebrating her 30th birthday today in Italy. She's on holiday with her boyfriend, Kevin who today, popped the question. The rest of the family had a pretty good inclination it was coming since he asked my father-in-law's permission a few days before the trip. He's definitely a smart guy. He's heard all the horror stories of how I never asked permission before asking Julie to marry me. I had met her parents once and known Jules for three months. It was a rough beginning. But Kevin listened and learned and he and Sarah are now engaged.
A proposal in Italy! Can't get better than that. Happy Birthday, Sar-- this song's for you!
