I keep expecting to be let down when it comes to my families, and I keep getting the opposite. I won't complain in the least.
Katie and Sean's parents were the only ones I (or V) sit for who didn't know about the engagement/wedding/honeymoon. I finally told them tonight (when their mom asked "So what's new?" it was a bit hard to leave out). I expected a congrats, and then moving on to a different topic; for various reasons, I thought they would be polite, but not super interested or maybe comfortable.
Instead, I got:
many, many congrats
inquiries as to our families
questions about our honeymoon trip
a small conversation on the legality of marriage here
a wish to pass on congratulations to V
Can I say, for the millionth time, that I work for and with the BEST families??
