I just wanted to take a quick break from Christmas to express my excitement for my sister, Downi. Downi is one of my best friends and I couldn’t love her more.
Thanksgiving 2010, she met the love of her life. Her roommate introduced her to a friend named Heather. Heather was a cute and spunky recently returned missionary. After meeting Downi, she said, you should really get to know my brother, Jared. (Are you following me on this one?) So, Downi, going completely out of character, sent Jard a friend request on Facebook and a message saying that she thought that they would be great friends.
Jared came up at Thanksgiving and that is when the stars aligned and they have been together ever since. They have talked about getting engaged since last February. They finally decided to just do it and this past Christmas, Jared came to my dad and had the “big talk.”
I can tell you that I couldn’t be more excited for both of them. If there was two people that were meant to be together, it is these two people. They absolutely complete each other and pick up where the other leaves off. I love them both and can’t wait until May 12th for them to seal the deal.
Congrats Downi and Jared.
