It snuck up on me. After spending the last year of my life hearing about how I would be the next one of my siblings to marry, I guess I got used it. I stopped reading the signs. I got comfortable. So I was a bit blind sighted when I unlocked my phone and saw a picture of an engagement ring on my little sister’s finger. Whereas I totally understand that these two were meant for each other, I guess my growing Spanish mentality hadn’t quite grasped that after “only” a year of dating they might feel more than ready to say I do. They visited for a weekend to make things official and get their fair share of handshakes, congratulations, and pats on the back. Along with a few smirks by family and friends that have already married and give them that all-too-familiar “are you sure you’re ready for this?” look.
Well, ready or not, here they go!
