Chris & Jacqueline are engaged!

This past Sunday Mr. Chris Tingle proposed to Ms. Jacqueline Sullivan, J's little sister!  The two lovebirds went hiking in Nashville's Percy Warner Park and during their romantic stroll through the woods Chris asked Jacqueline to be his wife.  After the hike, Chris had prearranged an Italian dinner in one of the park pavilions where a small group of friends and J and Jacqueline's parents were waiting.  I wish we could have been there to celebrate the happy news.  J and I could not be more delighted for the future Mr. & Mrs. Tingle!  Sending lots of love, cheers and congratulations your way, Chris & Jacqueline!

Happy 4th of July from NOLA!

Thank you to the Second Continental Congress for declaring independence in 1776!  How did J and I celebrate America's freedom from Great Britain?  We had a wonderful low-key weekend filled with studying, visits to the dog park, hitting golfballs at the driving range, beer, burgers, strawberry shortcake, and sleeping past 7am.  Hope y'all had a great holiday weekend, too!
