    @amy_e:  I too live 6 hours away from my parents and SO’s parents. I talk to my dad everyday on the phone (he was forced into early retirement and gets lonely, so I call him while I commute). I’ve been telling my dad about the developments all along and my parents and grandmother are completely in the know about the proposal, so I’ll probably call them when it happens this week. SO’s parents don’t have a clue, and since we don’t want them to find out from our Christmas letter we are going to call them to tell them on Tuesday before we go home for Christmas. If you want to annouce it in person, perhaps you could do it over the holidays if you’re going home. We are definitely not posting anything to facebook until all of the important people have been called.

    My Fiance and i both live about an hour away from our families, but we just called them and told them. They both knew it was coming soon, so they were expecting the call. 🙂 we both called/texted our friends throughout the day and then posted it on Facebook later that night after we had told everyone close. 🙂

    We were on the other side of the country from our familes when we got engaged and we wouldn’t be going home for over four months.  We called everyone.
