Dear reader, I don't mention many things on Tollipop these days, but it would seem somehow remiss to omit this happy and rather breath-taking piece of news: Sophie is engaged to be married to this wonderful young man. His name is Jakob and he is really the nicest person you could imagine. Sophie is very much in love, the girls are excited to get a big brother, my husband is thrilled for a guy to join the family, and I am quite touched to think I will suddenly have a son.
The wedding is coming quickly, in May.
It may not surprise you to hear I'm in a daze, as usual, that I think life is passing by too quickly, as usual. But I'm also genuinely happy for them. I could not ask for a young man of greater character to win my daughter's heart, and in that I find every reason to be grateful and to feel this world just became that much more lovely, that much more good.
