@sillylilly:  Is her reaction unexpected or not a surprise based on your prior interactions?

If it’s unexpected and you’ve had largely positive experiences with her in the past, you should call her to get a better sense of where’s she’s at emotionally! It can be so hard to tell how people really feel over email/FB. I wouldn’t rush to interpret her behavior as problematic if everything with her has been good so far. 

If it’s not really a surprise and you have reason to think she’s less than thrilled about your engagement, you might want to wait to contact her again until FH is back in town and come up with a gameplan together.
