- Wedding: July 2012
My family received emails that we’re invited to my cousin’s daughter’s Christening and since they live a few hours away from us we will all have to travel and stay in hotels. Well, I live with SO and my sister lives with her Fiance – so we were wondering if the guys were invited too – so we can all travel there together and also thought it would be nice for them to finally meet my cousin and his family. So my mom replied to the email and asks, “Is so-and-so, Sister’s fiancé and so-and-so, Beena’s boyfriend invited as well? They are pretty much part of the family now and we do everything with them.”
I cringed when I saw the boyfriend part – especially since it was next to Sister’s fiancé. But then I quickly recovered because I saw that she said that they are part of the family and we do everything with them – which I thought was so nice. And I thought, even though we’re not engaged yet, my family considers SO part of the family and I know his family considers me part of theirs. It was just a nice reminder to me of the important things during this time and will probably get me through another couple weeks of waiting, lol.
