The family is getting bigger

Nick proposed to Holly (my eldest) at Cardrona overlooking Queenstown, on his knee, in the snow.
The ring is beautiful, handmade with a champagne diamond - they are a darling couple and I know they will build a beautiful life together, they are young - but Holly has always been one to grab life with both hands and wring exciting experiences from it - she won't be stopping anytime soon.
and she's wearing my hat

Aww. Don't you love the circle of family life - you know what comes next don't you?! Could be some time off yet of course, but oh how exciting! Congratulations Holly (whom I've never met!)

Congrats to the happy couple! And you *know* you're gonna be a grandma before you're 50 right? Right? But on the bright side, you'll be a GORJUS ever-so-talented grammie! :-D
