my wonderful friend Karen phoned me from Texas on Sunday to tell me that she and her boyfriend had gotten engaged! I'm so ridiculously excited for her and can't wait until her wedding.
Karen and I met in high school. Sitting in a circle of people we didn't know, everyone had to share some little something about themselves. Karen's little something was that she loved looking through bridal magazines and daydreaming about her someday wedding. This made me yell across the circle-
And that was it.
We've been friends since.
