The Joaquins to-be

This past weekend was my sister-in-law Ali and her hubby-t0-be, Brad's engagement party at the Baker house. What a beautiful night it was in so many ways. First of all the Baker's house and yard was done up to the nines and looked as if it could have been the site of a wedding! There were beautiful table decorations and linens along with fabulous food. The weather was beautiful: cool, not much wind and we lucked out because the next day it poured! The guests were a lot of fun and we all enjoyed getting to know Brad's side of the family as well as the rest of the bridal party. I feel so short next to all of these gorgeous, statuesque gals! Gonna need some spike heals to blend in with this group. The dinner was an adult-only affair and it was so nice to be able to have full conversations with people instead of having to keep an eye on the kiddos! Alice looked amazing in her "engagement dress" that she had been holding onto for the occasion and Brad looked to be glowing and was dressed-to-impress. They make a beautiful couple and we cannot wait to see them wed! (next July) Brad is a stellar guy and I could not be prouder to call him my brother-in-law. Matt and Brad have become great buddies and often eat lunch together at PG&E where they both work. It is so fun to see our family continue to grow and we wish Brand and Ali nothing but what they deserve: the best. Love you guys!
