Joyous News!

We are over the moon excited here by the news
that my son is back in Korea, safe after his
vacation in Thailand. And most wonderful
of all he proposed to his girlfriend on a beach
under the stars and they are now engaged.

Christopher and Megan

I've been working on a bunch of drawings today.
If I get them finished in time I'll show them to
you. Meanwhile, I wish Christopher and Megan
were home so that we could toast them with a
glass of Veuve Cliquot and have a special
meal together. We could not be happier.
Megan is just a fantastic person and the two
have been in love for years.

A Visual Celebration for the happy pair

My son decided to propose at least a month before
they left for Korea in June, so he has kept his
plans a secret for a long time. That must have been
very hard for a completely direct person like him.
Their homecoming sometime in the late summer will
be cause for a party for sure! So that's my news.

Have a falling-in-love day!
