Lauren Stanley

I've waited 38 years and I will have to wait a little longer (wedding date TBA), but we are finally going to have a Lauren Stanley in our family!
Lauren was the name we had chosen if we had a girl...in 1975 and then again in 1977. But boys were in our future until 1999, when our boys started getting married. 
We have amazing daughters-in law and now we will add another wonderful woman to our family.
Evan got engaged today and her name is Lauren and we couldn't be happier. 
Mr. Romance has been a great role model to our boys and this engagement scene says it all.
Photo credit goes to my nephew. 
Evan and Lauren are vacationing in Honduras where my nephew is developing a resort.
Mother of the groom, one more time. I can't wait!

It must be the fact that I still remember my son's wedding and knowing how much I love my DIL, or maybe it is because my daughter is leaving home but I am with Susan....this photo almost brought me to tears! Congrats Di!!!

How wonderful! We had the name Hannah Emily picked out...in 2002, 2004 and 2008. No Hannah for us...I wonder if one of my boys will marry a Hannah?!
