I am pleased to announce the engagement of my best friend and my cousin.
I’m squealing with delight over here. Haven’t you always dreamed that you and your best friend would become sisters? We always say, “We already are sisters in spirit!” Well, this takes it to another level, and I am so happy for them!
Let me just give you a little background story:
About two years ago, my lovely friend Kristal and her sisters were moving out of town. However, whenever they visited my church, where my cousin, Daniel, and I attend. I always made sure to giggle and whisper in her ear, “You knowwww, my cousin is availableeeee!” when he passed by. And she would look at me, give a small smile and just shake her head.
Then she moved away, but we stayed in touch.
However, after a year, she moved back! We were once again the giggling, silly Eesho and Nielle; always chatting about our present and future lives, crocheting, and learning how to make aprons and bean dip. We delighted ourselves in the world of homemaking, and she taught me a lot of things about growing up. During 2012, she started attending my church, and then by fall, I was back to teasing her about my cousin. Trying to do inception on her. (;
During a phone call with her, I mentioned Daniel’s name and she said, “You know…. I do think he’s cute….” Just with those words, the wheels started turning. I didn’t even have to do anything, the Lord was completely at work in their hearts.
Just last month I got a phone call from her announcing that he proposed and inquiring if I would like to be a bridesmaid. I was just thrilled to my toes about hear about their engagement! I was even more thrilled when she asked if I would take their engagement photos. So here’s a look at this gorgeous couple and their truly Christ-centered relationship.
(P.S. Some of these photos would not have come out so great if it weren’t for the help of Karina, my partner-in-crime that day. ;) )
Kristal and Daniel, I love you both very much, and I’m praying for you both to continue to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” 2 Peter 3:18.
