Guys!! I am SO excited to announce that my sister is going to be marrying her best friend and love of her life!!!
Here is the abbreviated story:
It all started about 4 or 5 weeks ago. Herbert called up my dad and wanted to meet up for breakfast while Tyler was on her Thailand/India trip. Well, we were all hoping it was going to be an important discussion and IT WAS. He wanted my dad’s blessing to marry his daughter, which my father joyfully gave. Soon after that, I got a call from him as well. He wanted to meet up so we could start talking about RINGS!! Ahh! Leta and I met with him to talk about what she was looking for and where we could shop. After going to a few places with him, Herbert was able to find THE PERFECT ring and then we started talking about how to make it all happen!
Herbert had the awesome idea of proposing at the range, and I for one was SO thrilled that at least one of us could have a major life event happen there. The place is so special to my family and the fact that we all got to be there and see it happen is just so great and so fun!
The idea was that because Herbert and Dad love to fly their drones at the range, he would ask Tyler to come join them like she has done many times before. Nothing suspicious there. They were going to the Gold Cup afterwards, so we knew it would be perfect because she’d be dressed up. We went back and forth about if the family should be there or not, and after talking about how I wanted to take pictures and Daddy wanted to video it, we decided, “hey, why not?” And Herbert was so gracious to let us be involved with the whole thing! On Saturday, May 7th, it was finally time to make it happen!
Dad was so excited that he got there at 5:30 that morning. Herbert, Leta and I got there around 8:30 with about an hour to prepare.We set up the drones and cameras..
We ate some breakfast (photo courtesy of Dad’s video)…
We looked at the ring (Leta’s iphone pic)..And I found my hiding place – sniper mode (Leta’s iphone pic)

Everything was going great. But when Mom arrived with Tyler and it was time for Dad to fire up his drone… a propeller flew off. Not good.
But we pressed on; Dad and mom slipped into the background while Leta and I kept our hiding places. Tyler looked RIGHT AT ME and I thought the gig was up. But she still says she never saw me!
Herbert had put the ring box under his drone so she wouldn’t see it right away. When he picked it up, she still couldn’t see what was going on..(see the ring box in his left hand?)
But when he dropped to one knee, it all came together.
We could finally congratulate them!
And what would this post be without a closeup of the BLING?! Isn’t it AMAZING? It’s SO incredibly perfect for her!!
Congratulations to my favorite new couple!! I love you both!!!
