MY COUSIN MADDIE GOT ENGAGED ON WEDNESDAY
She lived with us while I was in middle/high school, so she's really more of a sister. She's one of my best friends, and realized she was gay at 35 after having been married to a man for 5 years (and having a son). She was unhappy for a long time, and coming out/meeting Nikki has transformed her in the most amazing ways.
- •She was planning on proposing to Nikki in a couple weeks -
- •- but Nikki told me while we were in NYC that she was going to propose to Maddie in LA.
- •I was supposed to hide in the bushes and take pictures,But I'm glad I didn't. It's a very intimate, private moment.
- •She got down on one knee and everything.(She found a stranger to take pics, who wouldn't then hang around awkwardly like I would have)
- •I'm so happy for them,
- •And so is the rest of the family.
- •She deserves to be happy, and her two years with Nikki have made her blossom.
- •(We took the same hike the next day and I cried a little)
- •I can't wait for Nikki to be one of the clan.💙 forever.
