About a year ago, I received a text from my brother saying that he was going to purpose to his girlfriend, Sarah.

“When did you buy the ring?” I asked.

“20 minutes ago.”

I then waited for an agonizing three hours until he finally texted me back and told me she said “yes.” What happened during that time, you ask? Well, the panels on the left side of the page may give some indication…followed by dinner, I’m told.

On December 4, 2010, Nate and Sarah were married. I was the best man. And the ceremony was beautiful. My speech: flawless.

I said it then and I’ll say it again: I’ve never been more proud of my brother than I am right now. And it’s more true every day. Congratulations to Nate and Sarah.
