Sam and Erich's Engagement

Will and I were sitting at the rescue station when we got a picture from Sam of her wedding ring. I think I actually jumped for joy! When one friend gets married it's overly exciting to us, BUT when two close friends get married AND to each other it's beyond words! I thought back to late nights sitting on top of Boudreaux's restaurant with Sam talking about, well, everything over a glass of wine. We had so many nights like this with the bunch of us and at about the time Erich moved away for a job up north, we started noticing his name coming up more frequently from Sam. Will and I smiled as time went on and we could see that they were headed from best friends to a long distance relationship to an engagement!!

Now Erich needs mad props (so sorry that I just said mad props) since he is constantly coming up with new ways to surprise Sam. I feel every time I talk to one of them either Sam is telling me about how she was surprised or Erich is telling us to keep his newest plan on the down low (ok also so sorry I just said on the down low). Hearing these stories just reminds me of how much they live for one another and how happy they will always be!

Congratulations again to Sam and Erich!!

They had no problem jumping on the ice! I was so nervous about this but I guess I should trust Will and Erich, the engineers!
