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.
  1. She was planning on proposing to Nikki in a couple weeks -
  2. - but Nikki told me while we were in NYC that she was going to propose to Maddie in LA.
  3. 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.
  4. 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)
  5. I'm so happy for them,

  6. And so is the rest of the family.

  7. She deserves to be happy, and her two years with Nikki have made her blossom.

  9. I can't wait for Nikki to be one of the clan.
