Before reading this post, please read “Some Random Monday”, our last blog entry (below). Today, MC brought NN into Maloy’s to get the size of the ring adjusted. They shared this next part of the story-
Even though MC had planned to propose on Saturday, the “Random Monday” idea had really resonated with him for some reason, and he decided not to wait. The proposal went perfectly, and NN was completely surprised. When they got home, they called NN’s parents… in Moscow. They spoke to her elderly father, who was overjoyed with the news, and they all celebrated over the phone.
Less than 24 hours later, NN’s father passed away. We all stood at the counter together as the goosebumps and tears washed over us. So pleased that he had that last bit of joyous news, so comforted that he knew his beloved daughter was so happy, so very glad that MC had listened to his instincts.
