Over the Christmas holiday, I finally got the news I’d been waiting FOREVER to hear – Lisa and Chas were engaged!!!! My cousin Lisa has had this amazing Chas in her life for about 6 years now and we all knew it was just a matter of time before they made it official! Of course plans for making a trip to Florida for engagement photos set into motion the moment we heard their news, and decided on the week of Spring Break so we could bring Evie with us and enjoy our time there with family (..aaaand a surprise couple of days at Disney!).
We had the most amazing time! The weather in NC has been less than spring like since spring sprung so breaking out the shorts and flip flops for a week felt SO good! ..and reconnecting with my family felt even better. Lisa, her daughter Brie (who is the same age as Evie), and Chas live in Largo – a massive 12 hour drive from Hertford – so sadly we only get to see each other every couple years. We are so thankful we had a BIG reason to make a sudden trip down to commemorate their engagement!
I could go on and on about how lucky and deserving Lisa is of having a great man in her life, exactly the man Chas is, but I want to especially share how special this union is for Brianna! Brie gets a Dad out of this deal! Chas has been in her life since she was about 2 years old so she’ll never remember not having her Chas by her side. She has connected with him as a father since as early as she can form memories and I love that their union as a family will be official May 4 of 2019.
I’m so happy to share these incredibly special people today on my blog! Happy engagement to Lisa, Chas & Brie!!!
