Spring is here, the sky is blue, whoah oh oh, birds all sing as if they knew (The Dixie Cups)

I am thrilled to be able to announce to the blogosphere that Samantha has accepted Jesse's recent proposal of marriage!!

Jesse did the traditional stuff brilliantly (seeking my permission was a classy start), including the one knee proposal in (by Jesse standards) romantic circumstances.

This was not totally unexpected news but it was joyous none the less. Wozza's world has not been the most fun filled place of late and Fanfa's news has well and truely rescued 2012.

Jesse and some of his fantastic family have been whanau members for some time, but they now move up the whanau ranks from 'American friends in America' to 'outlaw' status. As well as my sisters-in-law and a brother-in-law I will soon be able to add son-in-law to the whanau map. This is exciting stuff!! 

Jade is equally excited for Fanfa and for the wedding as she'll be the maid of honour. Of course, mother-of-the-bride (soon to become a, shock horror, mother-in-law), a.k.a. SWMBO, is over the moon with this news as well.

Luckily we love Jesse and his family so I can sincerely say a big 'welcome to the family!

Rest assured we will be getting prepared for the nuptials by sussing out the various relevant movies over the coming months - Father of the bride, Maid of honour etc, and looking forward to getting the Rowbotham and Purdy families together somewhere in the world to celebrate in style.

I leave you with this segment from Seinfeld (everything can be traced back to Seinfeld!)

Love and peace - Wozza
