…and of course, I said “yes”

Here you have it, my biggest news of 2014: I can now refer to my better half, Joe, as my fiancé. You guessed right: I said yes to one of the most important questions ever asked to me. Yes! The emotions are sometimes overwhelming. Depending on the family member, sharing the news either enhanced my giggle fits or caused me…
