Happy Monday! I just got back from a fun-filled family weekend celebrating the engagement of my beautiful little sister and her fiance. Everything was wonderful... there was home cooked Itallian food, a monogrammed cake, outstanding toasts from the fathers of the bride and groom and from the groom himself, and lot of quality time with friends and family. I love the idea of engagment parties because they give everyone a chance to get to know eachother before the big day. Want to find out more about engagment parties?
